Sri ABR Government Degree College, Repalle, was established in 1972. Since its inception, it has been working with a noble vision of ensuring quality education and has been catering to the educational needs of the economically poor, socially backward and marginalized rural youth of this area. The institution started with a vision to transform rural youth into intellectually competent, socially committed, environment conscious and responsible citizens with holistic and exemplary personality. The academic departments and students’ support wings such as NSS, NCC, JKC, RRC, YRC, Eco Club and WEC have been relentlessly striving hard to promote cardinal values such as Intellectual Competency, Social Commitment, and Environmental Consciousness among youth to realize the institutional vision.
The Academic Departments have been endeavoring to promote and tap intellectual competency among the students by conducting Seminars, Group Discussions, Quizzes and Assignments as part of regular curriculum transaction. Along with these core activities, the college offers Add-On and Certificate Courses for further enrichment of subjects to make students more competent.
Employability Skills, Communication Skills, Analytical Skills, Digital Skills, Presentation and Interview Skills which the students must equip themselves with, while entering the competitive world, are given prominence in the campus. These life and social skills act as propellant for advancement in their career. Jawahar Knowledge Centre and Placement Cell of the institution, in collaboration with Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation (APSSDC) offer extensive training in these skills.
National Cadet Corps (NCC) is one of the vibrant units of the college. It has emerged as an organization under the aegis of the Ministry of Defence. As second line of Defence, it has been playing a significant role in grooming the youth with the noble objectives of nation-building since its inception in the year 1948. The institutional NCC Unit 117(C) 22(A) came into existence in the year 2010 and since then it has been playing a vital role with its motto ‘Unity and Discipline’ in making the students socially committed, environmentally conscious and responsible citizens. It has been significantly contributing to groom young cadets and nurture and channelize their energy towards the noble objective of nation building through their holistic development. The cadets who have undergone training equip themselves with self-discipline, industrious attitude, leadership qualities and desired value system. NCC also helps in shaping them into dynamic and responsible citizens of India.
Physical Training and Drills are carried out regularly on the college ground. Theoretical periods, both for Common subjects and specialized subjects of the DGNCC syllabus are being jointly engaged by the Associate NCC Officer (ANO) of the college and by the Permanent Instructional Staff (PI). Cadets take part in National Integration Camp (NIC), Special National Integration Camp (SNIC), Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat (EBSB), Army Attachment Camp (AAC), Annual Training Camps (ATC), Trekking Camps etc. They are trained to act as Para-Disaster Management Rescuers at the time of calamities.
The cadets devotedly engage themselves in community service activities. These activities are formulated in such a way that they promote and imbibe patriotism, social responsibility, community service, and environment consciousness.
The NCC unit of our college takes lead in organizing and celebrating Independence Day and Republic Day with patriotic fervor. The unit is highly appreciated for its vigorous exhibition of drill and cultural performance on these august occasions. Besides, NCC Day and Army Day are also being observed and celebrated with full fervor and enthusiasm. National and International Days of importance such as International Day of Yoga, National Unity Day, World AIDS day, Constitutional Day too are celebrated by NCC unit to promote universal values and egalitarian nature among the fellow students and public.
As a measure of social responsibility, our NCC unit conducts Blood Donation camps and Awareness Programs, Personal Health and Hygiene Programs such as Anti Drug Day, Covid Awareness Rallies, FIT India Campaign etc. Cadets of NCC undergo First Aid training and Disaster Management training imparted by qualified personnel and serve the neighboring community in times of need or in the event of calamities.
Now a days, one of the most important intimidations the mankind is facing, is the environmental pollution. It is primary obligation of each and every individual on the earth to act promptly to deal with the environmental effects that are posing serious threats to his or her very existence. As a part of the responsibility, the institution seriously undertakes the promotion of environmental consciousness among its stake holders. It helps understand the relationship between man and the environment. The primary purpose of these activities is to impart knowledge about the environmental importance for inculcating responsibility towards its protection and maintenance. Besides this, it also fosters the skills that enable the attitude and expertise to understand the natural environment, its limitations and the quintessential ways to prevent it from harming humanity. To contribute and promote environmental consciousness, our NCC unit organizes cleanliness drives on the campus in addition to conducting off campus cleanliness drives at Government Hospitals, Schools, Statues of National Leaders, Bus Station, Railway Station, Beaches, etc. Plantation programmes are regularly undertaken by NCC and are particularly organized on the occasions of National and International Days’ observation. In order to make the students understand the importance of water in the human civilization and the ill effects of polluted water, the NCC Unit conducted Awareness Programmes on Jal Shakthi Abhiyan with MIME play.
Our NCC cadets imbibed the ‘Janani Janmabhumischa Swargadapi Gareeyasi’ Which means Janani (Mother) and Janmabhumi (Motherland) (Birth Place) are superior to Swargam (heaven). It is quite evident from the activities done by our NCC Unit. Cadets are deployed at crowded places during festivals and holy days at temples to regulate smooth movement avoiding any stampedes. They led a rally in solidarity with our soldiers during surgical strikes, Har Ghar tiranga, and campaign for raising a flag fund. Some of our NCC cadets repaid their debt through serving the Nation by joining Indian Army, Paramilitary Forces and State Police jobs. They are pivotal in internal discipline on college campus.
1. To instill in students a sense of social responsibility.
2. To inculcate in the students, the quality of giving back to the society a portion of what they get from it.
3. To work towards building a better society by inculcating values.
4. To organize blood donation camps in collaboration with Indian Red Cross Society, Repalle Branch and encouraging the students to voluntarily come forward in donating blood and saving lives.
5. To offer voluntary service through NCC and NSS units of college during various local festivals.
6. To involve students in clean and green activities in and around Repalle and adopted villages.
7. To create awareness among villagers through NSS volunteers and NCC Cadets on agriculture, sanitation, nutrition, personal hygiene, AIDS, preventive measures against fevers like Dengue, Swine Flu, Malaria, etc.
8. To cultivate noble attitude ‘Social Responsibility’ among the students through visits to Orphanages and Hospitals.
Social Responsibility includes concern for the consequences of an individual’s or institution's acts as they affect interests of other people and the environment. Responsibility begins with each person and then extends to working with individuals, groups, community, and the world at large.
An increasingly competitive environment and mechanical learning have deprived the present-day students of the opportunity to involve and learn by actively participating in community service.
The growing tendency among the students is that the sole purpose of education is getting high-paid jobs, earning money and settling abroad without any concern for community development.
The main objective of this practice is to inculcate social values among the students who are the future citizens of India in a society where humanitarian values are becoming extinct.
A widespread despondency, passivity, fatalism, and helpless attitude among the villagers make them drag their existence amidst squalor, suffering disease and death.
The practice also helps in enlightening and encouraging the volunteers to advocate citizenship and taking good care of the people and the planet earth
After taking into account the newspaper reports, Government Surveys, accessibility of the villages and the nature of problems being encountered, Uppudi and Bethapudi villages are adopted by the college. Students frequently visit the adopted villages and motivate the local people about cleaning and sanitizing the unhygienic surroundings and untidy habitats while highlighting their adverse effects on health. They also suggest easy and cost-effective solutions such as safe disposal of wet and dry wastes, safe drinking water etc
It is a matter of pride that our College students have donated nearly 200 units of blood in various blood donation camps organized by Indian Red Cross Society.
For volunteer services during major local festivals like Shivarathri and Kaarthikapournami the local police initially consult our NCC and NSS teams to manage and control crowd.
The staff and students have successfully conducted Swatch Bharat, ODF programs in and around Repalle and inadopted villages.
Staff and students occasionally visit orphanages and hospitals to offer the raised donations from the students and faculty of the institution.
Best Practice 2 Activities
Swatch Bharat Program organized by the NSS teams in the adopted villages has brought laurels to this institution.
Needy people were helped to receive blood units from Indian Red Cross Society Blood Bank donated by our student volunteers and staff.
Local police Station officers appreciated our NCC Cadets and NSS Volunteers for their self less service to the people.
Clean and green activities and awareness programmes on and off the campus have brought a cognizable positive change in the attitude of our students.
Their leadership qualities, Self-Confidence, Public Speaking, Problem Solving, and Team Work have improved to a great deal.
Though the students have succeeded in motivating the rural youth towards health and hygiene and environmental concern, older generations above the age of 50 are conservative and need more time for transformation as most of them are orthodox.
There is a problem of poor integration between the Government and the NGO agencies in the implementation of various beneficial schemes in rural areas. This has resulted in duplicity and redundancy.
Due to lack of awareness on blood donation and myths pertaining to blood donation, some of the students are not interested in donating blood.
Especially girl students are more afraid of blood donation and are reluctant to come forward for this noble cause.
The long serving hours during social service activities at fairs and festivals some of our NCC cadets are becoming sick due to lack of facilities such as rest room etc.
Parents of girl students are reluctant to send their daughters to the NSS Camps and other social responsible activities because of security reasons.
During awareness programs such as prevention of child marriages, AIDS, Clean and Hygiene, the villagers who are mostly illiterate people, are not paying heed to suggestions given by our students and are blindly rejecting them and are arguing with our volunteers on social issues.
To organize the awareness programs such as prevention of child marriages, awareness on AIDS, improvement of literacy etc. and make them more fruitful, our students need much more guidance and awareness from other resource persons who have sound knowledge about the problem.
More funds are required to facilitate the students with food and shelter while organizing many more such social responsible programs with an increased number of students.
