History of the Chapter
The Dehradun chapter begun in 2008 and so far has empowered 688 Shalinis, who have advanced in their lives with higher education or vocational training. Udayan Shalini Fellowship Programme is a constant effort to facilitate empowerment of underprivileged girls with potential for brilliance, helping them grow individually, socially and economically.
Apart from the financial sponsorship, the programme focuses on the overall development of these young girls through workshops, mentoring, and residential camps inculcating a sense of social work through various social campaigns.
At present, the Dehradun Chapter has 166 Fellows. The office in Dehradun is accessible to Shalini girl throughout the day for any query or support.
This year, in 2018-19, we have inducted a fresh batch of 30 Shalinis during induction ceremony function held at Welham Girls’ School, Dehradun. Welham School has been supporting our programme for the last 11 years by offering their facilities for written test, interviews and induction ceremony every year. Currently, USF is supporting 151 Shalinis at the Dehradun Chapter.
