Bishnupur: In a move to promote equal opportunity among students in Manipur, the Indian Army in collaboration with the National Integrity and Educational Development Organisation (NIEDO) has set up a coaching facility for boarding students at Bishnupur, 27 km from Imphal. NIEDO is a Kanpur-based educational trust.
The inclusive facility, set up with the goal to offer quality education to underprivileged youths in Manipur, can house fifty students. The students at the facility, despite hailing from various communities across the state, are residing peacefully with no reports of conflict.
Despite the ongoing crisis, there are many students in Bishnupur who have not given up on their preparation for NEET 2023. The coaching facility has decided to support these students by providing a safe environment for students, essential amenities and regular counseling.
