National Service Scheme

‘The Best Way to Find Yourself is to Lose Yourself in the Service of Others’ --- Mahatma Gandhi Ji

The National Service Scheme (NSS), a public service flagship programme of the government was launched in the year 1969 to celebrate the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi. During five decades of its existence, it has successfully spread its wings nationally and internationally through values and virtues of selflessness, altruism and compassion towards nation and society. The sole aim of the NSS is to provide opportunities to young students to engage in nation building activities related to social upliftment and community development by giving hands on experience. Each NSS student volunteer devotes 120 hours in one academic year for delivering his services to NSS related work.

NSS-Institute of Home Economics, is one of the most active committee of the college. It works to sensitize young minds to contribute for the welfare of the society by organizing various activities throughout the year. It carries out several community outreach programmes and also works in collaboration with a plethora of organizations such as NSUT, Daadi ki Rasoi, Mental Health Society- VOICES, NAB, Helpage India, Muskaan and Manzil. Beside this, the students are actively engaged in the programmes and campaigns within the college campus as well as extend their services through voluntary work in different NGO’s, at grassroot level communities and in collaboration with other colleges and institutes. The faculty and students actively participate in environmental up-gradation programmes, historical monument cleaning campaigns, tree plantation drives, campus cleanliness projects, blood donation camps, conducting webinars, health and nutrition education related awareness campaigns and demonstrations for the economically weaker sections of society.
Apart from this, NSS, IHE endeavors to sensitize students to use their creative abilities and skills in order to bring in meaningful changes in their life and in society.
