National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Central Government Educational Programme started in the year 1969. It is functioning under the ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports at the national level and under the Ministry of Higher Education at the State level.
The major aim of National Service Scheme is the development of the personality of students through community service. We have two National Service Scheme (NSS) units comprising 200 volunteers.
We undertake various social activities such as awareness programmes, cleaning public places, blood donation camps, afforestation etc.
In recent past we have conducted many socially committed programmes. Few among them are
We have adopted a village named Pizhala in Kadamakkudy gramapanchayath. We undertook various social activities there which include health and economic survey, distribution of study materials to children of St.Francis U.P.School. A vegetable garden was set at the school. One barren land was cleaned and planted trees there. A science popularization programme was conducted for the students of St.Francis U.P.School Pizhala with the help of all science departments of our college. A project proposal was given to the panchayath for extending our help and support to make the village “A filament free village” and to train the kudumbasree people for repairing LED and to open a ‘LED clinic’. Also to train the home makers to make umbrella, toiletries, candles etc. We have planned to complete the project by this academic year.
