The Tour is being organised so that the children from Mizoram can experience different cultures of India. A total of 13 orphans, accompanied by three teachers and four representatives of Mizoram Student Union are participating in the National Integration Tour, which aims at providing a unique exposure to experience a different culture and to also visit famous tourist attractions in and around Amritsar. During the tour, the participants will have a close interaction with the armed forces as well.
This would go a long way in motivating them to choose armed forces as a career option in the future.
