Cuncolim – The participation of Villagers and Social Workers in formulating development roadmap of a village can ensure positive progress of a Village. Social Service is Service to Humanity said Cuncolim MLA Yuri Alemao.
He was speaking as the Chief Guest at the Rural Camp organised by Department of Social Work of Don Bosco College, Panaji at Akamol in Ambaulim Village of Cumcolim. Fr. Carlisto Coelho, Parish Priest and Faculty Members of Don Bosco College Panjim and local villagers were present for the event.
Today the unemployment rate is rising at an alarming pace. Students need to find alternate source of employment and interactions with villagers will surely help them to get a ground connect. They can accordingly design their own employment model which will help them to earn as well as help the Village to develope said Yuri Alemao.
Fr. Carlisto Coelho congratulated Cuncolim MLA Yuri Alemao for his articulate and studious performance as a MLA. He said that Don Bosco Institutes always work towards Social Causes and try for betterment of downtrodden.
The five day camp gave an opportunity to the Students pursuing Bachelors and Masters Degree in Social Work to interact with the Villagers and get knowledge of Village Life and Rural Functioning.
Don Bosco College organises such camps annually which help the Students to understand the difficulties faced by the people staying in Villages. These camps also help in improving the standard of living of Villagers.
