I am happy to inform you that during current AcademicYear 2018-19, Rural Immersion Programs are executed in and around rural part of Pune, Satara, Baramati and Indapur Districts.
During the process of execution of the aforesaid program multiple themes like Health & Hygiene, Education, Women Empowerment, Spirituality (Peace), Digitalisation of School in the village, Life Skill education for indigenous (Adivasi) adolescent girls, tree plantation etc. were covered to build up the social awareness among students.
This unique program gives an opportunity for students to learn the defence mechanism developed by villagers to overcome various obstacles during survival. They also learn the structure and function of local self-government bodies.
Rural Immersion Program allows the students to experience, analyse and execute the plan collectively to provide solutions.
I congratulate teaching and non-teaching staff, students who successfully executed it.
