Disha is a career guidance program where direction is given to the students while choosing their career. The program aims to help students in keeping the pace with the changing world by informing them about newer & broader opportunities which are already available and other which would emerge in coming future.
Disha Project works with the students of 9th – 12th standard at Mundra, Gujarat. A career talk is given to the students which includes a video showing various career options after 10th standard and after each stream i.e arts, commerce and science. After the career talk is delivered, a psychometric test is undertaken with the help of the software exclusively designed to test the abilities of the students in Numerical, Mechanical, Verbal, Spatial, Clerical, Reasoning.
On the basis of the answers given by the students with the help of remotes, result is generated and three suitable careers are suggested to students on the basis of three parameters:Interest, personality & ability.
Apart from Disha, the Foundation also carries out Educational Vocational Guidance Fair (EVGF) with an objective to benefit those students who study outside the Mundra block and thus three EVGF have been conducted at Bhuj, Rapar and Nkhatrana villages of the region. The fair is divided in two parts - In the first part, the students are given a career talk by the staff members of Adani Foundation and thereafter the students go through 42 career charts that form part of the career exhibition. Later, a psychometric test of the students is taken and along with the results a booklet is given to them for future reference.
Choosing the right career is extremely important for the students to build a bright future. Adani Foundation conducted the first phase of Disha project “Career guidance programme” in all 13 secondary & Sr. secondary schools of Kawai, Rajasthan. As many as 1900 students from class 9th to 12th benefited from the programme. The programme is now running successfully and apart from guidance, booklets & other useful material are also provided to all students.
