Clara Vihar Post Novitiate Brothers Social Action Exposure Programme: Vimukti Pothnal

Affection and commitment towards social work is the best activity of life. We the Clara Vihar Post Novitiate brothers, were privileged to be a part of social action week at Vimukti Pothnal from 13th to 19th of September 2021. Our mission exposure programme in Pothnal was animated and guided by Vimukti Director Fr. Satish Fernandes. When we look into the past five days, we had a gradual and progressive growth in our outlook towards social work. We were introduced to a number of activities and initiatives that aimed at the betterment of children, youth, women and adults. In our visit to Raichur, we could closely work with the Child Line Programme coupled with some practical experiences in the field. We were also blessed with the opportunity to visit District Child Protection Unit (DCPU) and had a talk with National Child Labour Project (NCLP) Director, Manjunath Reddy MSW. In short, our mission exposure programme opened our eyes towards the various social issues such as child labour, child marriage, child trafficking, Devadasi system, illiteracy, poverty, migration and so on. We were also introduced to a number of schemes offered by the government for the upliftment of the children, women and the poor.

Our mission exposure in Vimukti, took us into a new horizon of social work. We realized that social work is all about enabling the people in the society, to stand on their feet. Social work is not mere charity but rather empowering the society to achieve its rights. This can be done by empowering and organizing the people to attain their needs. We felt that, Vimukti Pothnal stands as a model by getting into the various realms of the society and enforcing them to achieve their rights. We feel greatly honoured to be a part of this initiative undertaken by the Capuchin friars, and we specially thank Fr. Satish Fernandes, Mr. Sudarshan and all their team members for their immense support and guidance.
