This is an era where life is on the side of fast track. People have
become intensely business minded, and now merely everything is being
measured in terms of money, or monetary value. However, at the same
time, we have seen an increase in the intensity of the social work being
carried out by various groups, organizations, and individuals.
Organizations have started to allocate special funds for the social work
in order to make their surroundings better whereas the number of
pressure groups has also increased, which do not let any group to
indulge into unethical activities, which might harm the humanity
directly or indirectly.
Many individuals might think that what
benefit they get from working for others by spending their own money,
time, and other resources. The answer is simple; they get eternal
satisfaction. How do most of you feel when you are living in peace and
luxury inside your houses whereas there is plight, and hunger, and war
outside? Most of us would say that they are insecure, which is true to
some extent. The satisfaction, which you get from helping others, is
never ending, and you live your life with no regrets.
helps in creating balance in the society, which leads to equality even
in capitalist societies. Welfare services are provided to everyone on
equality basis, and the social disputes and pressure are reduced, which
often halt businesses for days, as citizens are in continuous clash with
the government. Social work helps in providing all the merit goods and
necessities to the citizens, which helps in maintaining peace and
satisfaction amongst the individuals.
The number of social workers
has increased over the last decade. The true spirit of helping others
voluntarily has been revived, which has removed the differences among
social classes largely. We all know that individuals from various
backgrounds and experiences stand together to make their communities
better by carrying out various tasks such as teaching underprivileged
children, cleaning local parks, providing services at hospitals, and old
age centers, etc.
Summing up, the significance of social work
cannot be measured in any circumstances. This trend of helping others in
your local community is increasing, and now our borders are becoming
meaningless as the time is passing. Whether there is a national disaster
in one country or another, the whole world unites in the grievance of
those who have suffered and tries its best to help them in all possible
ways, and there we see the role of social work.
