The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a community service programme with the objective of building social consciousness in students. NSS provides an opportunity to students in the capacityof volunteers to venture out of their comfort zones and make a difference to society. Inspired by this philosophy, the curriculum of the NSS chapter of Lady Shri Ram College, which was set up in 1968, comprises of a gamut of events and activities undertaken by volunteers who have channelized their creativity and spirit of volunteerism to bring about meaningful change.
Apart from being a part of activities launched by Delhi University NSS, we at LSR have undertaken numerous projects that focus on a broad spectrum of issues in different social spheres which include education for underprivileged children, caring for the elderly, intervention techniques for the differently-abled and intellectually challenged, working with animal shelters and health centers associated with patients suffering from AIDS and Cancers of various kinds. Every year more than 700 volunteers work ceaselessly and engage in various issues of social concern.
The NSS programme endeavors to sensitize the students to various social issues through discussion, debate, talks, seminars, workshops, music, awareness campaigns, street theatre and confluences. We at NSS-LSR have had the honour of hosting eminent personalities including, among others, politician and retired police officer Ms. Kiran Bedi, social activist Dr. Suman Aggarwal, and cyber-security expert Mr. Rakshit Tandon. Apart from this, we have worked closely with renowned organisations such as Teach for India and have collaborated on disaster mitigation programmes with JNU.
The annual NSS Diwali Mela is awaited eagerly by all students and is dedicated to a different social cause each year. The Mela serves as a platform for various NGOs and female entrepreneurs to showcase their products and is a day full of cultural performances, competitions, food and shopping.
