Doda, Jan 04, 2023: Sadiya Haffiz (14) a student of Government Girls Higher Secondary School Thathri in Doda Jammu, has been selected among 25 students throughout India under the Veer Gatha Project 2.0.

She is the only student from J&K Kashmir to win this prestigious award in the 9th and 10th competitions.

What is Project Veer Gatha Edition 2 ?

In order to disseminate the details of acts of bravery and the life stories of these brave- hearts among the students, it has been proposed by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) that school students may be motivated to do projects/activities based on gallantry award winners.

Accordingly, the first edition of Project Veer Gatha was organized from Aug 2021 to Jan 2022, for schools affiliated to CBSE and state boards. In pursuance of the Veergatha the students undertook different projects on these gallantry award winners and the best projects were awarded nationally by MoD and Ministry of Education (MoE)  twice in a year.
