Welcome

Bhutan is the first country in which the SAF has initiated such teacher-training projects, established within the framework of a government information and communications technology programme.

It was in Bhutan, too, that the idea of organizing the SAF Scouts Friendship Camps was first conceived to promote interaction and friendship between youngsters from different South Asian countries. The first camp was a great success and took place in Bhutan in February 2002. Five hundred and fifty girls and boys from all seven SAARC countries attended and took part in activities including singing, dancing and playing musical instruments. The SAF also arranged a free community email service enabling the children to remain in touch in the following year.

Student Testimonials

Here I have UMISA family who all are from different country, background, culture and religion which distract me from having home sick. The scholarship have affected me in many ways like ofcourse the study of design plays a huge role but other than that it taught me to socialize with a people which I rarely do.

Overall it has been a good experience to have lived and studied in entirely a new place. Got to meet new friends from SAARC countries. Above all we got to understand different SAARC countries and its people.
