Educational  trip  to  Sinnar,  Nasik

Students of Welingkar’s Hybrid Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM-HB) organized an educational trip to explore Sinnar, a village in Nasik, proud of its exemplary rural development. This also corroborated Mahatma Gandhi’s age old assertion: “The future of India lies in its villages.”

The visit to the farmers of Sinnar was an interesting facet to experiential learning in Welingkar’s Hybrid Management Program. It helped students to observe farmers conducting agricultural practices with the limitations of water resources. Farmers are educated through personalized training programs on how to minimize resources to maximize profit, liquidity of funds and speedy distribution of products. Fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides are made available through a centralized Agri Mall. Drip irrigation and ingenious methods of channelizing water from the dam initiated through the village Gram Panchayat, the local Yuva Mitra Mandal as well as social welfare and financial institutions contributed to a wealth of information and abetted the learning process.
