Every year, after exam results of Class 8th and 10th are declared, students from government schools in the Gidderbaha region who score more than 80 per cent marks in their Punjab Board School exams are taken to Chandigarh and given guided tours of IT and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) offices. These tours include visits to campuses to Dell and Infosys. The students here are given motivational lectures by the company officials. This has resulted in enhancing the aspiration levels of these school. Many kids from the region today aspire to pursue higher studies and to work in corporate sectors. The teachers of the schools say that the initiative has motivated other students (those not getting good marks) to work hard since the trip is being viewed as a distinction by all pupils and their parents. The teachers say that there is a marked improvement in school attendance too after this initiative was started.
