NSS Activities

NSS Preview..The National Service Scheme (NSS) was started in 1969 with the prime objective of developing the personality of students through community service. It is a medium to bring students in direct contact with community problems, needs and its developmental processes. Dignity of labour and sense of responsibility are inculcated in the students. The NSS was started in 35 universities with forty thousand students. Gradually, the coverage increased to 22 lakh with the passage of time. The motto of NSS is "Not me but you". The objective is to develop the qualities of love, compassion and brotherhood among the students through social service. The scheme utilizes the leisure time of students in programmes aimed at upliftment of slum dwellers, removal of social evils, imparting awareness, protection and healthcare. They are trained for relief and rehabilitation work during natural calamities and national emergencies.

Sri Sathya Sai College for Women, Bhopal started its first unit of NSS with 75 students in the year 1976. Over the years, the participation of students increased. Seeing the overwhelming response and the interest of students in the scheme, Barkatullah University granted permission of opening the second unit in the year 1986-87. Both the units became functional with more than 200 student volunteers. As the performance of the two existing units was very good, in 1998 the third unit was opened. At present, all three units of NSS are actively functioning with more than 300 students.
