Kohima, May 10 (EMN): The National Service Scheme (NSS) has been launched in Kohima. The NSS was launched at the Dr. Neilhouzhü Kire Government Higher Secondary School in the capital by Nagaland NSS officer C Theyo, on May 10.
Giving a brief background of NSS at the launch, Theyo said that the service scheme — one of the longest serving service scheme — was a voluntary association of young people, which was launched in 1969 commemorating Gandhi’s centenary year.
The scheme, an academic extension programme, according to him aims at developing student’s personality through community service and to explore and expose the hidden talents of the young students through various activities.
Theyo maintained that the programme of NSS, a campus-community linkage, also aims to inculcate social welfare in students and in doing so, learn from people to love and care for people and nature around them.
Currently, he informed, that 67 institutions from across the state, both government and non-governmental have been affiliated to NSS. He also explained that the two primary types of NSS activities are regular activity and special camping. Besides, he said the activities of the NSS extend to a larger and wider participation involving the young people on blood donation, environment related activities, participation at the state, regional and national level etc.
While expressing his delight at the students’ willingness to be a part of the NSS, Theyo was confident that through the activities of NSS, the students would be greatly benefitted by inculcating in them the sense of social responsibility and civic sense through doing things practically.
