Call for expediting social work activities

BSS, Rajshahi

Academics and researchers at a post-rally discussion here yesterday unequivocally called for expediting the social work activities for improving living and livelihood condition of the poor and extreme poor population in urban areas. They also stressed the need for boosting the number of social workers and volunteers so that they can contribute to the government efforts of freeing the nation from poverty and hunger as a whole.

They made these observations while addressing the inaugural session of the second biannual conference of Rajshahi University (RU) Social work Alumni Association (RUSWAA) at RU Kazi Nazrul Islam auditorium. RU Vice-chancellor Prof Abdus Sobhan addressed the ceremony as the chief guest while its Pro-vice-chancellors Prof Ananda Kumar Shaha and Prof Chowdhury Muhammad Jakaria spoke as special guests with RUSWAA President Mozammel Haque in the chair.

RUSWAA General Secretary Prof Sadequl Arefin welcomed the participants.  Earlier, a large number of RUSWAA members brought out a colorful rally and paraded main roads in the campus before being ended at the meeting venue.

VC Prof Sobhan says the present government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working for mainstreaming the marginalised population through various need-based programmes.

He, however, mentioned that the rural poor people with their recurrent disaster exposures are migrating into urban areas. These new comers face a high employment crisis in city and with very poor-quality housing and other well-being further tapping them into a deeper urban poverty cycle.

Climate change is becoming a threat to the urban environment and development and livelihood as well the uncertainty. The urban poverty is highly linked with rural disaster risks. The urbanisation situation, particularly the housing in the city is getting more acute with every passing year.

So, time has come to generate the fields of volunteerism to mitigate the problem. He said students of the university have a vital role to this end.
