Social work

"Social work is a profession concerned with helping individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. It aims at helping people to develop their skills and their ability to use their resources and those of the community to resolve problems.

 The Social Work Department of Pavanathma province is  engaged  in promoting, conducting, facilitating  and coordinating  developmental and social welfare activities for the poor and the marginalized irrespective of caste, creed or community. In the initial phase, the social work department was characterized by an intensive effort to conscientize and motivate the marginal groups for self-help development endeavours. In the wake of that awareness campaign, several Women’s Action Groups (Self Help Groups) SHGs emerged and began to actively participate in the development programs. The department has been considerably successful in imparting proper orientation, vision and skills to a good number of these SHG-Kairose groups so that they are now the focal points of development initiatives in their target areas.
