Awareness program on Legal Rights and Privileges:
Our constitution ensured a lot of rights to the Indian citizens, under the head, Fundamental Rights. There are so many laws related to civil as well as criminal to steer up the people in the society. Basic knowledge about the rights of the people only will steer up the people from doing illegal activities. The rural population is deprived of getting awareness about the rights and privileges ensured in the constitution. Therefore CSD had organized the legal camps. Lawyers practicing in the court were invited for the camp as resource persons. Curriculum related to Fundamental rights, civil rights such as Ancestral Hindu property rights, marriage act, Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, special features of PCR Act, Minimum wages Act, and Bonus Act etc. were explained in the camp.
Support Service to Education:
CSD is taking active participation in promoting the quality of Education in rural areas. It is common that the standard of the rural student is far behind the student who studies in the urban schools. It is due to the fact that the Govt. is keeping more attention to the urban education centers than the rural ones in terms of providing infrastructure, staff and equipments. As a matter of upgrading the skill on computer knowledge to the rural students the Governing body of CSD took an initiate to donate computers, Table and chairs, Desk and Benches etc to the rural Schools.
