The objective is to familiarise school and college students with the role and functions of MEA, key elements of India’s Foreign Policy and success stories and achievements on the foreign policy front. The initiative is undertaken with the help of officers of MEA and involves their visit to schools and colleges in their hometown/states during leave and is voluntary in nature.
