NGOs are a ray of hope in the lives of those individuals that have lost the battle of life, almost. Social work organizations take care of various types of needs that oppressed experience and are not able to fulfill them.
Poor, downtrodden and oppressed are the common terms that one comes across more than often in third world countries of the world. Though many of the developing countries have surpassed the economic growth expectations and want to come out of this tag, but the truth pertaining to the ordeal that people below poverty line go everyday cannot be ignored. This is the reason why philanthropists try to do their bit by taking time off and dedicating themselves to a good cause. It is us, the people, who can help each other and bring a change in the world by making life better and easier for those wh
So, here are some of the causes that social work organizations support and achieve their aim of making a small difference in the lives of the oppressed.
- Food for the homeless: Poverty and hunger go hand in hand. There are still around 2-3% of world population that has not eaten two times a day. Organizing food distributing campaigns or adopting a slum area to meet the food needs are some of the most prominent works done by the non profit organizations.
- Education for all: Though the governments have the programs like ‘Sarv Shiksha Abhiyaan’ where a large number of children are getting educated, still a major portion of the beneficiaries remain left out. Organizations focused on social work see free education as another important cause to deal with and they take care of the education needs of the children covered under their territory of influence. They provide free books, voluntary tuitions and classes and also offer free vocational courses so that children groom into learned, self-dependent individuals.
- Medical Treatment for the Abandoned: Many a times, we come across incidences where the terminally ill patients are abandoned by their own family. Reason can be many, but it is ultimately the patient that need loads of support – both physical as well as emotional. Social service sector forays into the cause of charity hospitals also to provide the medical support, companionship and a decent, respectful life to the abandoned beings. There are care centers for elderly and ill, run by NGOs that keep the humanity above everything.
- Rehabilitation of the victims: People go through accidents, traumatic incidents and various kinds of untoward happenings that rob them of their self-confidence, money and sometimes, physical capability too. Such people need very sophisticated counseling coupled with the financial support to come to terms with life again. NGOs do the job of bringing back such people to mainstream by providing them food, shelter, vocation and above all, assurance that there is a light at the end of the deep, dark tunnel.
There is a deep economic divide in the country that nobody can fill but it can definitely be reduced. Bringing the oppressed to the mainstream by providing them courage and hope is the sole idea behind any kind of social work taking place in the country. And depending upon the expertise of the trustees, these NGOs take up the cause and support it.
