"Know Goa Programme - 2010"

The Government of Goa, Department of NRI Affairs by Shri Eduardo Faleiro, the Commissioner for NRI Affairs, has formulated a ‘KNOW GOA PROGRAMME’ (KGP) for the benefit of Goan Diaspora Youth who are not Indian Nationals and have had no opportunity to discover Goa and India, its glorious past, exciting present and promising future.

The KGP is intended to provide the participants a unique opportunity to share their views, experiences and expectations. With a package of programmes focusing on learning and sharing thought processes with their counterparts in Goa and elsewhere in the country, the Programme is aimed at exposure to urban and rural milieu, grassroot governance and cultural heritage. Under this Programme, Goan Diaspora Youth-students and young professionals in the age group of 18-28 years – who have distinguished themselves in various fields and have abiding interest in India in general and Goa in particular, are sponsored every year in November – December on a 15-day visit to Goa and Delhi.
