In keeping with the sole aim of the NSS, Raghu Engineering College is associated with National Service Scheme to provide hands on experience to young students in delivering community service. Instilling the spirit of service and promoting active participation in the government led community service activities; Raghu Engineering College has created opportunity for our students to become NSS Volunteers.

Helping students expand out of intellectual luxury and inspired from the thoughts of Mahatma Gandhi of involving students in service activities, Raghu Engineering College has been associated with NSS from 2009. Since its inception with a team of 1 Program Officer and 50 Student Volunteers the unit has been actively rendering services in coordination with JNTUK NSS Cell and has grown to the size of 3 units with each unit constituting of 1 Program Officer and 100 student volunteers adding up to 300 Student Volunteers. Of the 3 units of NSS, one is funded by JNTUK NSS Cell and the rest 2 are self-financed by Raghu Engineering College. The cardinal principle of the programme is that it is organized by the students themselves and because of their active participation in social service they get a sense of involvement in the tasks of national development. This has been helping our students identify social problems and developing a sense of civic responsibility.

Outreach Programs by REC- NSS & UBA

An outreach program aims to help, uplift, and support those who are deprived of certain services and rights. It involves giving learning, social planning, health support, and other projects for their welfare.
Under NSS and UBA , we take charge of promoting, searching for volunteers, and recording details about the outreach.
Planning programs for the community can help solve a greater need for a long-term plan toward social progress. Further, other program members must join hands to plan and source out more assets and means to create more long-term solutions and voluntary efforts.

Why the need to start or join an outreach program?

The main purpose is to help achieve a goal for the greater good. This is by choosing a specific group, analyzing their needs on certain issues, and therefore building a program to aid them in learning, recovering, or becoming self-sufficient.

Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) @REC

Unnat Bharat Abhiyan is inspired by the vision of transformational change in rural development processes by leveraging knowledge institutions to help build the architecture of an Inclusive India.

Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) is a flagship national programme of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, envisioning the transformational change in rural development processes by leveraging knowledge institutions to help build the architecture of an Inclusive India

NSS Units of Raghu Engineering College(A) initiated UBA Activities in the community as per the guidelines and norms by the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA).

Promoting development of rural areas in the villages adopted like Dakamarri, Bodamettlapalem, B.R. Talavalasa, Amanam and Korada, Raghu Engineering College is tied up with UBA activities which are in tune with the Gandhian vision of self-sufficient ‘village republics’, based on local resources and using decentralized, eco-friendly technologies so that the basic needs of food, clothing, shelter, sanitation, health care, energy, livelihood, transportation, and education are locally met. This has been our vision at Raghu Engineering College towards the holistic development of villages.
