National Service Scheme (NSS)

National Service Scheme, under the Ministry of Youth Affairs Sports, Govt of India, was launched in Gandhiji’s Centenary year; 1969. Aimed at developing students’ personality through community service, NSS is a voluntary association of young people in Colleges, Universities and at +2 level working for a campus community linkage. NSS has been functioning as a regular feature in the realm of our university education. The overall objective of the scheme is educational and service to the community is the activity through which the objective is sought to be achieved. It is a student-centered program in which projects are implemented by the NSS volunteers in close collaboration with the community and thereby it provides vast scope for the students interaction with the people.

NSS units of MES Ponnani College actively carry out different programmes inside and outside the campus which epitomize the quintessence of egalitarian living and advocate the necessity for altruistic service. NSS activities in the college undertake to instill in the students a feeling of kinship with fellow human beings as well as nature. Every year the activities are formally inaugurated and the regular camps are being held during the Saturdays and Sundays. The regular camps become good occasions for social outreach as far as the student volunteers are concerned. Massive Tree Plantation programme; Medical/Health alertness programme; construction of roads; cleaning the surroundings of college, nearby schools, hospitals etc; awareness programmes for public like religious harmony camp, anti terrorist campaign, drug abuse campaign etc. are some of the activities of NSS units in MES Ponnani College.
