Illiterate people usually think a social work student does only these
We lecture on some sanitary issues or AIDS!!!
We teach them!!!
We pick up Garbage!!!
Literate people usually think a social work student does these
Fight for equality and other such things!!!
We help the alcohol addicted people rehabilitate!!!
We help the handicapped, elders, children, men, women everyone!!!
We do all these!!???!!
What I thought I would do as a social worker
I should help elders!
Counsel people who are under stress and so on!
Join together to make a change!
Act as a volunteer!
Lend a helping hand and mutual support to every individual!
But in reality what i do actually in my college as a social work student
We put Mehendi’s for the forthcoming friend’s marriage sitting in the college LIBRARY!
Go for RURAL CAMPS and celebrate PONGAL festival!
We go to some orphanages and entertain the kids and make them showcase their talents!
Put RANGOLI’S for the cultural’s!
We rarely go out for some competitions and try to win at-least the 3rd prize 😛
We go on rallies shouting over some issues where no one ever care to hear!
We even get the help of the kids to join our rally because they are the only spectators!
We gather those kids and elders in the village and entertain them! People dont actually listen to the lectures we give them over AIDS, ALCOHOL ADDICTION and so on!
People please stop commenting over every single act of mine saying “OMG… Being a social work student how can you do this”…
Being a social work student doesn’t make you a real social worker actually… Its just a platform where you could find the areas to work and its upto the individual and what really matters in Social work is not the mere degree but THE PASSION that’ll drive us ahead…
