Ministry of Education Launches ‘Prerana’: A Transformative Experiential Learning Program

“Prerana: An Experiential Learning program” was introduced by the Department of School Education & Literacy, Ministry of Education, Government of India, with the goal of providing each participant with a meaningful, unique, inspiring experience so they may develop their leadership skills.

Prerana is motivated by a strong dedication to integrating Indian education system principles and the value-based education philosophy, which is a cornerstone of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

Prerana is a week-long residential program for selected students of class IX to XII. It is an experiential and inspirational learning program for students with the best-in-class technology where heritage meets innovation. A batch of 20 selected students (10 boys and 10 girls) will attend the program, every week from various parts of the country.

Prerana program will run from a Vernacular School, established in 1888, in one of the oldest living cities of India, Vadnagar, district Mehsana, Gujarat. The school stands as a tribute to Vadnagar’s indomitable spirit, a living city that has triumphed over challenges like earthquakes and natural calamities and is home to ancient heritage sites and monuments inhabited since the early historic period and in the modern day.

The school signifies the fact that extraordinary lives often find their roots in ordinary foundations. Grounded in the timeless wisdom of India’s rich civilization, this unique initiative embodies a vision aligned with the principles and ideals of our Hon’ble Prime Minister, who is an alumnus.

The Prerana School, a program by IIT Gandhi Nagar, focuses on nine value-based themes: Swabhiman and Vinay, Shaurya and Sahas, Parishram and Samarpan, Karuna and Sewa, Vividhta and Ekta, Satyanishtha and Shuchita, Navachar and Jigyasa, Shraddha aur Vishwas, and Swatantrata and Kartavya.

The program aims to inspire youth and foster respect for Bharat’s unity in diversity, embodying the spirit of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.” Participants will be guided by prestigious institutions and will engage in yoga, mindfulness, meditation, experiential learning, thematic sessions, hands-on activities, and visits to ancient and heritage sites. The program also includes visits to ancient and heritage sites, inspirational film screenings, mission life creative activities, and talent shows.

To participate in the Prerana program, students can register through a portal and participate in a selection process at the school or block level. After selection, 20 participants (10 boys and 10 girls) will attend the program and embark on a journey of inspiration, innovation, and self-discovery. They will then carry the ethos of Prerana into their communities, becoming change makers and inspiring others.

To register for Prerana, students of Class IX to XII may visit prerana.education.gov.in.
