Many of students have succeeded in different sort of competitions as well as achieved the U.S funded scholarship, out of those many student Khushi Jeswani, a very sincere, dedicated and industrious student is one of them. We appreciate her diligent efforts to qualify for THE KENNEDY-LUGAR youth Exchange and study program.
The Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (Yes) Program was established in October, 2002. The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, along with the U.S. exchange community, recognized the importance of youth exchange as a key component to building bridge between citizens of the United States and countries around the world, particularly those with significant Muslim populations.
The program is funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs (ECA) to provide scholarships for high school students from countries with significant Muslim populations to study for one academic year in the United States. Yes students serve as “youth ambassadors” of their home country, promoting mutual understanding by forming lasting relationships with their host families and communities. Participants live with a host family, attend an American high school, acquire leadership skills, and engage in activities to learn about U.S. society and values; they also help educate Americans about their home country and culture.
The program officially launched in Pakistan in 2003 in hopes to expand communication between the people of the United States and Pakistan in order to promote mutual understanding and respect. Since then, over 1120 Pakistani students have completed the YES program and now participate as alumni.
So far, more than 9,000 Students have done Matric from H.H. Prince Aga Khan Higher Secondary School Amynabad, Hyderabad. They are found in all walks of in education, medicine, politics, business, civil service, the arts, fashion and sport.
