HISTORY TV18 as part of its Social Outreach initiative will engage in various activities which connect Communities and Families to the HISTORY brand.
The two broad areas identified for engagement are Education & Conservation of Monuments. To take this forward HISTORY has forged an international partnership with UNESCO to advance the world’s awareness of the importance of preservation of World Heritage sites and education on cultural and natural heritage.
History TV18 has also partnered with the CBSE board in their educational campaign to preserve and protect heritage monuments in India. This program aims to educate and create Conversations about the rich history of India among the students. The program will involve a series of contests and activities which will be initiated in schools all over the country.
The Take a Vet to school initiative is conceptualized to capture the interest of the students. It breaks free from the textbook method of teaching History, making learning a truly lively, engaging and interactive session for the students. This national initiative will link ex-servicemen of all ages with young people in our schools and communities. The activity will provide Indian veterans an opportunity to educate students about their experiences and allow them to share personal stories about their service to our country. This inaugural event was held at Delhi Public School Mathura Road on 14th Feb 2012. The Guest of honor was a decorated veteran, Retd. Commodore Vijay Jerath, winner of the Vir Chakra in the 1971 war.This activity will soon roll out across various other cities.
