The NSS Unit of VNR VJIET has started its NSS camp for the year 2009 on May 11th at 11.00 am in Railapur village, Kowdipalli Mandal, Medak District, Andhra Pradesh.
Day 1: Door to Door survey: The inauguration has been presided over by the Serpanch of Railapur village, Mr. Devula, Mandal President Mr. G. Yada Goud and VNR VJIET NSS programme officer, B. Narendra Kumar. Thirty six students belonging to various branches of 2nd and 3rd year B.Tech Engineering volunteered in the camp putting all their energy into action. The camp started with the door to door survey from 11.30 am to 2.00 pm. Focus has been laid mainly on the health standards, sanitary conditions and educational opportunities of the villagers while conducting the survey. It has been noted that the villagers are suffering from joint pains especially knee pains due to poor quality of drinking water. Special classes have been conducted for 9th and 10th class students for mathematics and science laying emphasis on trigonometry, matrices and kinematics, dynamics respectively from 4.30 pm to 7.30 pm. It has been found that the village school lacked proper teaching facilities. Hence, classes have been conducted to help them out.
Therefore, day-1 came to a fruitful end with the health survey and special classes.
Day-2: Campaigning: The activities of Day-2 started at 7.30 am. Door to door health survey and NSS campaign has been conducted in the villages surrounding Railapur i.e., Manasapalli, Timmapur, Venkatraopet and neighboring hamlets (Thandas). It was found that these hamlets suffered from age old problem of “child marriages”. Hence, NSS team made efforts to bring awareness among the tribals to tacklet this menace. The health survey highlighted the problems being faced by theses tribals. Joint pains among men and anemia among women affected these helpless tribals a lot. Majority of the people, among whom the survey has been conducted suffered from respiratory problems, cataracts, TB etc. Another notable problem was malnutrition among children of these under privileged villages. The survey ended at 2.00 in the afternoon. The academic classes have been continued as per Day-1 in the evening fro 4.30 pm to 7.30 pm.
Day-3: Mega Health Camp: Day-3 remained the most prominent. The much awaited mega health camp was organized. The inauguration of health camp was presided over by Dr. K. Vizaya Kumar, Principal of VNR VJIET and experienced team of doctors which included general physicians, gynecologists, orthopedicians, dentists, opthalmologists neurologists and house surgeons. The camp was organized in collaboration with Medicity Hospital, Medchal and NTR Memorial Trust. A total of 502 villagers were diagnosed and treated for their ailments. Medicines were distributed free of cost. Around 40 cataract patients were referred to Medicity hospital, Medchal to be operated upon. Accordingly, the health camp concluded at 3.30 pm on a good note. The team of doctors also visited Dr. D. Ramanaidu old age home for general health check up of 40 inmates. This session ended at 5.00 in the evening. Meanwhile, there was a press conference attended by the Principal, VNR VJIET, NSS programme officer, VNR VJIET, Mandal President and Village President of Railapur. There was an interaction session between the NSS volunteers and inmates of old age home. The elders shared their invaluable experience and knowledge with the future citizens of the nation. The volunteers performed cultural activities which added in a lot of fun. The interaction session which started at 7.00 pm, ended at 9.00 pm.
Day-4: Career Planning and guidance: The task of day-4 was to provide guidance for school children about their higher education and career counseling for intermediate and graduate students. Many of these students were unaware of educational opportunities available for them, various government schemes that can aid them and the benefits of pursuing higher education. Another notable drawback was huge number of dropouts. The reasons behind this were brought into limelight through the effective interaction between the NSS volunteers and students. Some of these include forced child labour, poverty and lack of proper guidance. It was disheartening to know that some of them were addicted to alcohol and smoking. Not only students, it was found that even women were addicted to it. The NSS volunteers offered many possible solutions like awareness regarding benefits of higher education and lucrative jobs they can acquire through it. Special emphasis was laid on how to tackle financial problems by sharing the knowledge about the scholarships and fee reimbursement from the government and educational loans offered by various banks. The students were advised to inculcate the habit of reading newspaper daily. The students were cautioned about the health problems they will face if they get addicted to bad habits. The importance of living in neat and clean surroundings to lead a health life was highlighted. The counseling session was concluded at 2.00 pm. Press conference was held from 2.00 pm to 2.30 pm for NSS volunteers to share their experiences and views. The tuitions were continued as usual as part of evening session from 5.00 pm to 7.30 pm for 9th and 10th classes.
Day-5: Plantation: Day-5 started with a plantation programme at 8.00 am to 12.30 pm by planting saplings along the streets of Railapur village and in the school premises. A press conference was held wherein NSS team was interviewed to share their experiences about the camp. A vote of thanks was given by village serpanch Mr. Devula at 2.30 pm. The enthusiasm of the whole NSS team was appreciated. Finally, the NSS camp ended on a very good note as all the tasks were successfully accomplished.
