Rashtriya Sarpanch Sansad is a pioneering academic platform aimed at facilitating dialogues and exchanging information and knowledge related to local self-government. Despite seven decades of independence, many villages in Bharat still lack the infrastructure for daily living, making holistic development an urgent need.
To address these issues and equip future leaders with a deeper understanding of rural concerns, the Rural Immersion program is integrated into the academic curriculum of MIT WPU. Students have the opportunity to work in various villages, engage in direct interaction with villagers and Sarpanches, and gain a hands-on understanding of the challenges faced by rural communities.
Sarpanch Sansad takes this effort a step further by focusing on empowering Sarpanches and promoting open dialogues among all participants. The platform offers a unique opportunity for individuals to learn about positive initiatives and problem-solving efforts in their respective areas. This happens when they share their achievements, and broaden their knowledge through exchange and discussion. Operating as a non-political platform, the Sarpanch Sansad is part of the organisation’s CSR initiatives. A vision to bridge the gap between India and Bharat, a mission to create more model villages, the Rashtriya Sarpanch Sansad is an initiative for growth.
