(ALLROUND DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENTS)
Kohli now decided to launch a mass-movement of adventure for the youth. First of all,
Outward Bound Scheme was started in which Schools were requested to promote adventure,
physical fitness, yoga and meditation. After two years efforts, an improved version was started: ‘Vivekenanda International Students Training Award Scheme’ under which awards were to be
given to students who show all round excellence. Both Sumeru and Vistas were well received
by various schools. In consultation with Sir Edmund Hillary and other trustees it was decided to
take up these projects under the umbrella of Himalayan Environment Trust, as while promoting
mass scale adventure among the youth it would simultaneously spread up mass scale awareness about the problems of Himalayan Environment.
