Social-Rural Immersion Programme

A “Social-Rural Immersion Programme” was organized by an NGO, LetsTagOn founded by an IIM(A) Graduate for an experiential learning as well as to sensitize the students towards social concerns.

A two-day activity-oriented Social Immersion programme was organized on 4th & 5th May 2023 to provided experiential and impactful immersive experience. The students walked through exposure to communities and social causes which was designed through group activities, scenarios, case studies, awareness, sensitization on diversity & inclusion, cause marketing and volunteering fostering creativity and impact. The entire program is aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as set by the United Nations.

The students visited Jalige, a small village near Devanahalli on 14th June 2023 and got an exposure to the social, rural and grassroots development challenges; rural administration; awareness on sustainability; comprehensive study on the rural livelihood challenges through practical field experience as well as opportunities to deal with real world problems through management techniques learnt in classrooms. The students also visited :

  • A Government School and spoke on the ‘Excessive use of Plastic which is creating havoc on the planet and how to reduce, reuse and recycle it’. They interacted with the school children though discussions, quiz and drawings.
  • Grape Fruit Farm & Dragon Fruit Farm to understand commercial crops and market conditions prevailing.
  • Gram Panchayat which provided real-life learning & intense societal engagement, under different situations. They learnt the policies, rules, and regulations implemented for the overall development of the village and various schemes initiated by the Government for farmers, education, health, development and employment.
  • Gram Panchayat Library
  • Poultry Farm
  • Milk Dairy facilitated in understanding supply chain management of dairy products.

The major concerns highlighted by the visit were lack of resources, infrastructure and getting trained personnel to work in such remote areas.
