Social sectors are the ones like NGO’s which helps the ones that really needs the help the needy. This sector has now many youngsters who want to create a change and try something differently in their life. This sector is filled with people who doesn’t want to go to a regular college and be an engineer or a doctor. This is more than that. There are reputed colleges and fellowship programs available for those who want to pursue their dream as a social worker. We should be lucky because we have a family who is always there for you to take care of you, to worry about you, to feed you when you are hungry, to get you good and even costly clothes and the clothes that you like, give you education, a warm and cozy room with all the gadgets etc. You should really be thankful for that. There are still millions who were very poor not even afford a single meal a day, wearing shabby clothes, sleeping on platforms, eating from the dustbin, drinking water from sewage living in a dumpster. Not having money or anything to buy them the basic necessities. Imagine living one day like that. Can you even imagine? Whose fault is that they are living like that when we can sleep in an air conditioned room in our houses. People, it’s time to think and start acting. Even though you don’t pursue a degree from the social work institutes or universities you may still follow the fellowship programs available in your place. It melts my heart whenever I see a small child begging in the busy roads of traffic selling some pens, toys, sun shield. Sometimes even they beg for money for food.
One day me and my friend while returning from college saw a mother and child who were begging for money in the traffic. We felt really sad for the girl as she was around six to seven years old. So, we went and asked her mother why she is allowing her little child to beg in the signal. Her response was really shocking. We asked about here whereabouts and why is she living in the streets. She said she was abandoned by her husband as he is a bad drinker and he will beat her and her child daily. So she said she had left the house avoiding her husband and started to live on the road. She would still send her baby girl to school on weekdays and she would sell some things like pens, caps, earbuds etc and on weekends her baby girl would join her. She had a baby boy who was around a year sitting with hungry eyes on his mother’s lap. We were so moved by the lady’s story we wanted to help her but we couldn’t. Why because is our parents didn’t like this kind of activities. When we go and said that they said there are organizations to look for them so you just focus on your life. So, question yourself, who are the people behind these organizations? It is people like you and me who strive to bring a change in this society, helping the abused, protecting children and the needy voluntarily without compulsion. But even if you are going to pursue your career as a social worker then go and join in a reputed university.
Some of the reputed institutes include-
# TATA Institute of Social Sciences
# Jamia Milia Islamia
# Delhi School of Social work
# Madras School of Social Work
# Nirmala Niketan
Some popular social sector fellowships
# Teach for India Fellowship
# William J Clinton Fellowship
# Gandhi Fellowship
# Azim Premji Foundation Fellowship
# Prime Minister’s Rural Fellowship
