The Department of Social Work started its journey in September 2014 for post graduate
students to help them acquire skills to work in rural areas and to orient them to have an
inclination for development efforts for the people of rural vicinities in Bankura district.
The Social Work Department has initiated outreach activities in the nearby
rural communities. For this purpose, the department has been working continuously in the
adopted villages. It also collaborates with NGOs and industries for community
and social development at large. The focus of the department has been on strengthening
social work research and community extension work. The department organizes
blood donation and Thalassaemia screening camps. Afforestation activities are initiated by
the department on certain occasions such as, World Environment Day, HIV& AIDS Day, etc.
Educational surveys at villages are organized by the department in collaboration
with various organizations. Moreover, inter-university exchange programmes are introduced
for academic interactions and field exposures. The department reaches out to people of the
rural vicinities to manage situations due to natural disasters through relief works. To give
psycho-social support to the elderly people and to minimize the intergenerational gaps
the department organizes various community engagement programmes with the NGOs
and local bodies. Besides, the students conduct awareness generation programmes on
various aspects and engage community people for community participation through the
practice-based methods like PRA and PLA. Moreover, to make a collaborating link between
home, school and local administrators the school social work plays an important role
for the physical, mental, moral, cognitive and cultural development of the children.
