The BeaconHouse National University (BNU) has given admission ton 14students from South Asia Foundation for Regional Cooperation (SAARC)countries on schorlarship offered to them by the South Asia Foundation(SAF).
The first SAF-SOS joint project, approved by the SAF Chairpersons, was the Environment (organic farming) camp which was hosted by the SOS Vocational Training Centre in Malpotha, Sri Lanka, from August 12th - 21st 2003.
I take this opportunity to thank you for the generous offer you have given to us, the journalists and would be journalists of this region.
Within the South Asia Foundation, an ambitious educational project, called the South Asia Foundation Learning Initiative or SAFLI in short, was established in September 2002, linking a number of Open Universities in SAARC countries.
I have heard that the SAF has decided to award 100 scholarships from next year. I am so happy to know this and I feel it is a very great decision taken by SAF.
I have been studying journalism at the Asian College of Journalism (ACJ), Chennai, with the SAF Madanjeet Singh Scholarship, from the Bangladesh chapter.
To be able to understand, learn and enjoy life in an environmental friendly atmosphere became possible through the kindness of Madanjeet Singh, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador and founder of South Asia Foundation, who managed and sponsored the 2nd Friendship Camp second time and ensured the continuation of such annual camps.
