NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME (NSS)
The College recognises the importance of social; responsibilities and community services in the all-round development of our students. The NSS unit of our college was established in October 2003. Since its establishment, the NSS unit has undertaken various welfare projects in the adjoining rural areas, especially in Kshetrapaltala, an adopted village of Prabhu Jagatbandhu College.
In September 2018 an educational film show was organised in the college by the NSS Unit in collaboration with Fragrance Creation of acclaimed film maker Mr SouravSarkar for the creation of awareness among the students. It was as per the advice of the DPI, Govt. of West Bengal. The film show exhibited the issues related to ‘safe motherhood, psychological awareness on healthy family and mental health. About a hundred students participated in the film exhibition programme.
In February 2019, a seminar was organised by IQAC in collaboration with NSS Unit on Quality Enhancement in Higher Educational Institutions. About seventy participants comprising both teaching and non-teaching staffs of our college participated in this programme.
In April 2019, the NSS Unit has organised a Health Check-up camp in Kshetrapaltala under Mashila Gram Panchayat. A few days before the camp, a survey was conducted door to door in the village to know about the basic health related problems and accordingly data have been collected. The survey was conducted by the student volunteers guided by the programme officer and other members of NSS Unit. An allopathic doctor from West Bengal Health Service attended the medical camp. The villagers enthusiastically participated in the said camp. As per the resolution taken in the NSS sub-committee meeting, some sanitary products were distributed among the local people. They have been made aware about the basic features of sanitation and health care issues. In addition to that dietary consultancy had also been done to the visiting patients in the camp.
In future, the NSS Unit will further attempt to reorganise such health check-up camp for those needy people in our adopted village who lack basic health care service adequately. Besides, the NSS Unit is planning to distribute some free medicines to those people.
