The Indian government took the decision of opening up education from India to the African countries in order to make African students gain knowledge and build a strong career. This targets the African students who are mostly unable to procure better education due to unfortunate life conditions and poor economic situations as well.
The government of India will provide 15000 scholarships to students which will enable them to pursue an education in the field of arts, sciences as well as medicine. All the well known medical institution, as well as the universities of India, are collaborating together to make this initiative successful.
African students can opt for this scholarship to get enrolled for short term courses, undergraduate courses as well as postgraduate courses. The teaching procedure will be conducted online. Medical science training and education will also be provided for the students who aspire to become paramedics, nurses, or doctors.
The telecommunication education system will be continued for the next five years and helping African students who possess the potential to do well in their academics with the scholarship.
This initiative is going to be one of India’s most influential steps in making education reach out to the world. It will improve the lives of students who are lead back into society due to unfortunate life conditions despite being very deserving of quality education.
India also took initiatives in making the VISA requirements lenient in order to facilitate more number of African students to come to India and pursue their education to build a strong career. The event which was held for the announcement of the initiative was hosted by representatives from many African countries like Ghana, South Africa, Nigeria, DR Congo, Kenya, Sudan, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Mauritius, and Rwanda.
The students who do not want to fly down to India to pursue their academics can now procure their degree by sitting at home. They just have to attend classes through the online process of teaching offered by e-VBAB.
This initiative will be covering up around 30 countries in Africa and will diligently function to make education reach every corner of Africa. An estimation of the total number of students who have applied for the scholarship program was performed. It is found that already there is four thousand five hundred number of African students who have applied for getting enrolled in the training program.
Pursuing education in India is not an uncommon factor for African students. There are already innumerable African pupils studying under educational programs offered by renowned institutions of India. This is because the course structure, education, and teaching quality are of top-notch quality. Also, the price of getting enrolled in the education system of India is quite lower compared to anywhere else in the world.
But there are still many students back in Africa who cannot come down to India for various issues. This online education program is designed especially for them to provide the benefit and the perfect training they deserve to make a strong future.
