Rural Exposure Program - Department of Political Science

The Department of Political Science, in coordination with the Center for Social Action, had organized an overnight Rural Exposure Program for students of V Semester HEP/EPS on 24th and 25th August, 2011.

 The camp was organized in and around Hoskote, and was aimed at providing the students field exposure to governance issues that they study in Public Administration. Activities included visits to the village school and Childrens' Activity Center, interaction with a Self Help Group, interaction with the Panchayat President, interaction with Anganwadi counselors, Street Plays to spread socio-political awareness, 'Shram Daan' (wherein they helped level the village school kitchen floor with mud manually carried from a distance), and Visits to the Homes of hospitable villagers to study their access to civic amenities. Students used these opportunities to learn about Rural Health and Sanitation, education and Awareness, Socio-Political and Economic Empowerment, Development Administration, and the significance of Villages to India's Socio-Political Economy.
