The World of Internet comes with its own pros and cons. With this pandemic, our dependence on this online world, digital has increased to a very large extent ultimately increasing the risks to which most vulnerable are youngsters and children. Among the users around the world one third of them are youngsters and students. Unfortunately, the online abuse and other online crimes take place in the privacy of one’s computer or device.
A Young activist, Aditya Sharma aged 20 years from Narsimpur, Madhya Pradesh has been closely associated in making this virtual world safer for these youngsters by being a social worker and a student activists, he is also a member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidharti Parishad(ABVP) and the founder of the Bharat Youth Forum and the NGO Youth Social-Cultural Welfare society .
He is determined as well as hardworking to see new changes and work for the goodness of people.
How in corona period he helped the people.
In this corona period he had helped many poor people who were not even able to purchase a mask or a food he provided them with all the basic necessities.
Evils like drug addiction and the like have come to stay and destroy our new, coming up generation. All these evils are coming up owing to our children growing up in crèches and elders being sent to homes for the aged. All these situations have given birth to loosening of the threads of family ties that existed here not very long back.” This is what a student activist or a social worker must be thinking. The very essence of social service lies in really forgetting oneself. Service above self is today only used for lip service and not social service, it is only a decoration of the profession and found nowhere in reality. The modern clan of social workers wishes to get involved in such projects only for self-dignity as, the work is the in thing now, is in fashion these days.
The role of a social worker is to shield vulnerable people, develop relationships and where possible help families to stay together while sticking to these guidelines. They also support people to enable them to live a happy life as possible. Social workers work as part of multi-disciplinary teams with other professions such as education, health and probation services. This is to make sure that all aspects of the service users’ life are taken into consideration when help is being discussed. If this is completed effectively no aspect of the service users’ life is left without any help if it is needed. Social workers work in various different organizations. Some work for local authorities in children and adult services departments there are also social workers working in hospitals and the voluntary and private sector.
In conclusion, the role of a social worker is very varied and complex.
Social workers face many issues while working with service users and their families. Of course the life of a social worker isn’t easy but if no one comes forward then how is change going to take birth? Thank you to all the student activists and social workers like Aditya Sharma who are still working for the benefit of the society.
