SECTION 1



SOCIAL




The term social refers to a characteristic of living organisms
as applied to populations of humans and other animals.

It always refers to the interaction of organisms with other organisms
and to their collective co-existence, irrespective of whether they are
aware of it or not, and irrespective of whether the interaction is
voluntary or involuntary.

SOCIAL
SERVICES




Social services are a range of public services provided by governmental
or private organizations. These public services aims to create more
effective organizations, build stronger communities, and promote equity
and opportunity.

Social services include the benefits and facilities such as education,
food subsidies, health care, job training and subsidized housing,
adoption, community management, policy research, and lobbying.

Not all public services are social services.

Some companies use social service as a means of marketing or to save taxes.

SOCIAL
WORK




Social work is a professional and academic discipline that seeks to
improve the quality of life and subjective well-being of individuals,
families, couples, groups, and communities through research, policy,
community organizing, direct practice, crisis intervention, and
teaching for the benefit of those affected by social disadvantages
such as poverty, mental and physical illness or disability, and social
injustice, including violations of their civil liberties and human
rights. The profession is dedicated to the pursuit of social justice
and the well-being of oppressed and marginalized individuals and
communities.

PUBLIC
SERVICE




A public service is a service which is provided by government to
people living within its jurisdiction, either directly (through
the public sector) or by financing provision of services. The
term is associated with a social consensus (usually expressed
through democratic elections) that certain services should be
available to all, regardless of income. Even where public
services are neither publicly provided nor publicly financed,
for social and political reasons they are usually subject to
regulation going beyond that applying to most economic sectors.

Public service is also a course that can be studied at a college
and/or university. Examples of public services are the fire
brigade, police, army, and paramedics.

A CASE
FOR
SOCIAL
SERVICES
NGO's




It is widely acknowledged that the state alone cannot achieve its
goals in addressing social needs and that organs of civil society
in a democratic dispensation, firmly rooted in society and with
popular participation and voluntary support, are essential for a
caring, responsive and effective service delivery network.

The degree to which there is a presence and activity of a voluntary
welfare initiative and wider NGO life is said to be an indicator of
the level of a country's democracy. The flexibility, responsiveness
and innovation of the private sector is readily acknowledged and
where NGO programmes are supported by Government funding,
NGO's contribute extra time, resources and ongoing commitment.

Considerable funds are also leveraged from the public, the corporate
sector and other donors. The Government that fails to recognise and
formally acknowledge the invaluable role the NGO community plays
in social development, is indeed a foolish one. This recognition and
formal acknowledgement needs to be settled with a partnership
agreement.

WHAT ARE
THE
DIFFERENT
TYPES OF
SOCIAL
NGOs?




Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) are usually nonprofit entities
that aim to help society in ways that governments cannot. Social
NGOs most often work for a society as a whole, though some of these
organizations may work on behalf of specific groups.


Common types include:

social public service

international welfare

government-sponsored entities


Each type helps individuals to achieve some type of goal; in some cases,
social NGOs may be better at allocating resources due to the lack of
government bureaucracy. These organizations also encourage volunteers to
help work on various projects, which result in individuals essentially
helping individuals.

Public service social NGOs are exactly what they sound like entities
that engage in a service for an entire society, whether local or national.
These organizations may carry goals of promoting the spirit of public
service or creating a civil society among individuals. In short, the goals
of these social NGOs are mostly altruistic and may work beyond the standards
of governments. A board of directors usually acts as management for these
NGOs and selects goals or allocates resources necessary to complete tasks.
Some government funding may be found in these organization types.

International welfare NGOs are another common type of organization that may
fall under the broad description of social NGOs. These organizations work
specifically with promoting democracy or other altruistic goals in other
countries. In most cases, social NGOs operate in a democratic or other
stabilized country; their goal is to spread democracy to countries that do
not have such freedom. An international welfare NGO may have multiple
locations or partners in order to succeed. For example, a home base in the
original country may also have locations in the countries in which it works.

Government-sponsored entities are a form of social NGO that works closely
with the government on certain operations. In some cases, these organizations
make the work of government more palatable to those in society who may be
leery of the government as a whole. For example, governments may appropriate
funds for certain types of work, with the funds going to specific social NGOs
prior to the final goal or end project.

The government may be able to control the work of these organizations more
than other types of NGOs in society. This can be both good and bad as most
NGOs typically want to work outside the bounds of government control in order
to promote proper society.

WHAT IS THE
DIFFERENT
BETWEEN
SOCIAL
WORK
AND
NGOs?




Social work and non-governmental organizations also known as NGOs
are concepts which are often linked, and yet the two represent
fundamentally different ideas. The key difference between social work
and NGOs is that social work is a field of study and practice, whereas
NGOs are a type of organization. NGOs can often carry out social work,
but not all NGOs are involved in social work and a great deal of social
work is done by organizations which are not NGOs.

"NGOs are bodies which are neither government agencies nor businesses.
The term can refer to a wide variety of different types of organization,
but it often describes charitable or advocacy groups such as Amnesty
International or the International Red Cross. The term most commonly
applies to international organizations, although this usage varies;
there is no universal definition of an NGO. NGOs address a wide variety
of issues, including economic and technological development, disaster
relief, animal welfare and other global problems.

Like "NGO," "social work" is a term which covers a wide range of activities.
Broadly speaking, social work refers to programs intended to improve the
welfare and living conditions of members of society, particularly low-income
or otherwise marginalized communities. Social work can involve education,
counseling, political advocacy, career development and any other activity
which aims to improve the life of an individual or community.
