  6. 6. 1 CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION Social services are a range of public services provided by the government, private, and non-profit organizations. These public services aim to create more effective organizations, build stronger communities, and promote equality and opportunity. Social services include the benefits and facilities such as education, food subsidies, health care, police, fire service, job training and subsidized housing, adoption, community management, policy research, and lobbying. Social Justice Department working with the concept of welfare state is underpinning socio-economic development plans of Kerala Government. The department is working hard for the upliftment of marginalized groups and to provide justice to the victimized. The Directorate of Social Justice under the Department is the nodal agency for implementing the social welfare schemes of the State Government and various welfare schemes of the Government of India. 1.1 Beneficiaries for senior citizen Fig. 1.1 Social security to elderly is not charity but their basic human right The elderly population (60+) in India is a fast growing phenomenon. In India, the culture of sending elderly persons to Old Age Home is fast developing. In 2002, of the total 1018 old age homes in India registered with the Help Age India, 186 are from Kerala. The old age population in 1961 was 25.6 million while after 30 years i.e., in 1991 it was more than double which comes to 56.7 million. In percentage terms it was 5.83% in 1961, 8.82% in 1991 and 9.79% in 2001 which is much higher than in other states. It is also to be noted that majority of old age people in Kerala are widows. In
  7. 7. 2 1991, among the old age people in the range of 60-69, 53.8% are widows and among those above 70 years it comes to 69.20 percent. By 2021, about 20 percent of our population would be elderly and the demand on the social security system would be really enormous. So, it is very important to remember that social security to the senior citizens is not charity instead it is their basic human right. 1.2 Beneficiaries for children Fig. 1.2 Children are one of the most beautiful creatures on earth – they are full of joy, energy and curiosity. They constantly explore everything around them and in the process learn many things. The process of exploration and learning in early childhood is crucial to the child’s development. Research studies show that 50% of the total intellectual development of a child is completed by the time he is four years old. Obviously, much care must be provided to the child during its first few years. It is the responsibility of the parents and the society to provide an enriching environment for children, so as to ensure proper development of their innate talents and skills to the maximum possible extent. Pre-school years are central from the point of view of child development. In early childhood, development is rapid and environment creates a deep impact on individual when his development is at its fastest. Similarly, the consequences of deprivation are also much greater in the first five years than that could be, if they happened in later years. Pre-school years are crucial for developing proper values and attitudes in children. The foundation of scientific attitudes and proper values such as hard work, national sentiments etc. could be developed in children better, if a beginning in this direction is made in early childhood. The nutrition given in pre-school is also a major factor that determines the development of children. Malnutrition in early childhood can cause lasting and irreparable damage to the child’s physical, motor and intellectual development.
  8. 8. 3 1.3 Beneficiaries for the differently abled Fig. 1.3 Differently Abled is often described in terms of lack of normal functioning of physical, mental or psychological processes. It is also defined as learning difficulties or difficulties in adjusting socially, which interfaces with a person’s normal growth and development. A disabled child has been defined as one who is unable to ensure by himself, wholly or partially the necessities of a normal individual or social life including work as a result of deficiency whether congenital or not in his physical or mental capabilities. Persons having any of the disabilities, namely, visual, communication (hearing and/or speech) and locomotor, will be considered physically disabled. More and more people are now convinced that "disabled" is not the right term to describe people who are challenged. Many now prefer using the term "differently abled". Who are differently abled persons? As per the provisions of the Persons with Disability (PWD) Act it means:- A. Blindness B. Low vision C. Leprosy cured persons D. Hearing impairment (deaf and hard of hearing) E. Locomotor Disability F. Dwarfism G. Intellectual Disability H. Mental illness I. Autism Spectrum Disorder J. Cerebral Palsy
  9. 9. 4 K. Muscular Dystrophy L. Chronic Neurological Conditions M. Specific Learning Disabilities N. Multiple Sclerosis O. Speech and Language disability P. Thalassemia Q. Hemophilia R. Sickle Cell disease S. Multiple Disabilities including deaf blindness T. Acid Attack victim U. Parkinson's disease 1.4 Beneficiaries for trans genders The Transgender community face many problems such as fear, shame, social discrimination, depression, suicidal tendencies and social stigma. they are unable to live a dignified life, once their gender status is revealed. Steps must be taken to create public awareness so that TGs feel that they are a part of society and are not treated as untouchables. The solution to their problems require concerted efforts to mainstream them through adoption of an inclusive approach in all spheres of life. Kerala is the first State to establish a Policy for Transgenders, in India. As per the census conducted in Kerala during 2015-16 there are 1187 Trans genders in Kerala. More of them are reluctant to reveal their identity. Trans genders are very much struggling for their day to day life activities. This group needs more attention for mainstreaming into the society. The Hon'ble Supreme Court vide Judgement dated 15th April, 2014 has recognized transgender as the third gender for the purpose of safeguarding their rights. The judgement has also directed the Centre and State Government to grant legal recognition of their identity. “Seldom, our society realizes or cares to realize the trauma, agony and pain which the members of Transgender community undergo, nor appreciates the innate feelings of the members of the Transgender community, especially of those whose mind and body disown their biological sex. Our society often ridicules and abuses the Transgender community and in public places like railway stations, bus stands, schools, workplaces, malls, theatres, hospitals, they are sidelined and treated as untouchables, forgetting the fact that the moral failure lies in the society’s unwillingness to contain or embrace different gender identities and expressions, a mindset which we have to change.” (Judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India on 15 April 2014)
  10. 10. 5 CHAPTER 2 EMMANUEL CHILDREN’S HOME 2.1 INTRODUCTION As a part of B-Tech curriculum, we underwent 17 days social visit at Emmanuel children’s home at Kuzhimattom. It helped us to learn and understand the hardships people faced in their everyday lives and it gave us an opportunity to carry out our part in aiding our society. It reminded us of the core values of compassion and empathy that we as committed individuals of the society must display. 2.2 INSTITUTION PROFILE Emmanuel children’s home is located at Kuzhimattom, a village in Kottayam district. It is managed by Rev.Shaji C George and his wife Beena Shaji. It was started in the year 1999 by two children. Now it accommodates 25 children of different ages, some who are in primary school, others in secondary. The orphanage is running with the help of wellwishers. They need support for almost everything including housing, home materials, clothing, food, and school fees especially for orphans who are coming to finish secondary studies and want to continue with university. This children’s home, work for the vision “SAVE A CHILD, SAVE A NATION”.
  11. 11. 6 CHAPTER 3 DAILY DAIRY DAY 1, (5 JAN 2018) We, a group of students from our mechanical batch arrived at the orphanage at about 9 am in the morning. The director of the institution and children welcomed us to the institution. They looked very happy when they saw us. The event started off with a short opening speech by the director; he gave a brief description about their institution. In an attempt at establishing a semblance of familiarity, we introduced ourselves; we told them about our college and stream and course and dreams and to our delight the children began introducing themselves one by one. Through the introductions they shared their ambitions, hobbies, their role models etc. Thus, we spend our first day by interacting and getting familiar with all the children. We distributed sweets and toffies to them. It was really an exciting day for us. We also managed to come up with a schedule for the upcoming 16 days. DAY 2 – DAY 6, (6 – 10 JAN 2018) As a social service we planned to conduct an English grammar class for five days. For that we students were divided into five groups and each group was given a specific topic in English grammar. Group I took classes about nouns, pronouns and adjective on 6th JAN 2018 Group II took classes about verbs and adverbs on 7th JAN 2018 Group III took classes about preposition on 8th JAN 2018 Group IV took classes about conjunction and interjection on 9th JAN 2018 Group V took classes about tenses on 10th JAN 2018 The classes proved to be delightfully challenging as we ourselves were revising and recollecting various titbits of information through the rambunctious questioning of the active class students. The children responded actively and all of us found ourselves happily adopting the profession of a teacher. DAY 7, (11 JAN 2018) On this day children showcased their talents before us through singing, dancing, monoact and mimicry. Their singing and dancing really made everybody feel very joyful. They performed so passionately and innocently. We also joined with them for dancing and singing, to make the children happy and forever optimistic. After the long session of classes for five days, this day presented us with unforgettable moments of fun and joy.
  12. 12. 7 DAY 8, (12 JAN 2018) We conducted a quiz competition among the children. For this, the children were divided into groups containing two members each. Questions included the general information about India, Kerala, sports, arts etc. Several reading books were presented for all the participants for their excellent corporation. The books were: • OrmashakthiVardhipikkan by N Moosakutty • VyeakthithwaVikasanam by Prasad Amor • Malayalam Rachanapadavali by S Krishnakumar • Kompanana (story) by Satheeshkavyadhara • Sahithya Quiz by Hareesh R Namboothirippad • PrasangaSahayi by M K Vasudevan • PathinanchumPathinanchum (poem) by Kunjunni • KusrithiGopiyudeAlbhudhayathrakal (story) by Vasumoorthy • Fundamentals of English Grammer and Composition by M N Sankaranarayanan Nair • English- English Malayalam Dictionary by H&C Publications • Hindi-Hindi English Malayalam Dictionary by H&C Publications The children were all eager participants and competed fairly. They were delighted with the books they received. DAY 9, (13 JAN 2018) We taught the children about the basics of MS Office and its applications in the modern technological world. Each of us brought our laptops to make a practice of this. We taught them individually how to edit, type, save and print using Microsoft word. We taught them to unleash their creative imagination by painting virtually in Paint. They were thrilled to see the bright gem like colours dazzle across the screen at just a click on a mouse.
  13. 13. 8 DAY 10 – DAY 13, (14 – 17 JAN 2018) During these days, we were playing games with the children. We brought bats on our own and taught them the way to play badminton. We also conducted badminton match for the children. It was a nice experience. We again conducted cultural shows which included mimicry and music shows. Most of the songs, we sang were melody and fast songs. It was another joyful experience. DAY 14 – DAY 16, (18 – 20 JAN 2018) We served lunch to the children on these days. The lunch was sponsored by us. We also served desserts to them. We shared our experiences about engineering studies and gave them advices on how they too can join and learn engineering. DAY 15, (21 JAN 2018) This was our last day at this institution. We played some fun learning games to encourage participation. We engaged in playing cricket and cycling at their mini ground. After all these wonderful moments, we all assembled at the visiting hall. Now all of us are familiar to each other as a family. The director expressed his gratitude towards us for spending time with the children. We handed over a small amount as donation to fulfill some of the requirements of the children. After that we dispersed from there after a very exuberant photo session.
  14. 14. 9 CHAPTER 4 CONCLUSION The visit to the orphanage was a fulfilling experience for us, as we came back home with not only memories but also some valuable lessons. Even though our time at children’s home came to an end, the lessons we learned there and the friends we made will forever stay in our heart and soul. Our prayers will always stay with them.
