Fieldwork in social work education refers to training and education. The training is respective skill oriented and education is imparted with broad perspectives. In consists of accumulating knowledge in different situations. It is a dynamic process of observing, amassing and implementing creative and innovative ideas. Moreover, it fosters the development of intellectual and emotional processes and attitudes. This training started as field instruction with apprenticeship in social agencies. The tasks given to trainees were similar to those craftsmen and there was dichotomy between administrative and non-administrative skills. fieldwork is considered to be learning through doing. Therefore,

The idea if Dewey, i.e., learning through doing has had a primary influence in the concept of fieldwork. It is an integrating factor acting as a balancing force between the two companions of fieldwork, which has crucial significance in the training of social work. It blends theory with practice combines philosophy with action, integrates the understanding about peoples with methods of helping them. The techniques drew heavily on scientific knowledge about people and social phenomena. It is functional and technical in nature and foster learning in students. Moreover, it is an integrated approach, which goes concurrently with the classroom teaching process.

Field work programme provides an opportunity to students to apply their theoretical knowledge taught in the class room appropriately in different practical situations. Similarly, it serves as a social laboratory, wherein a student tests his theoretical knowledge in practical situations and develops the skills for social living.

It is a way to transform knowledge through certain skills and techniques into action. The significance of field work training in social work is consequential because of its nature of dealing with problems practically. Mere class room lectures are not enough to comprehend practical situations, in professional education. It was this fact which promoted Annette Garrett to write, An extensive well planned field work programme is inevitable. It becomes very important in dealing with the dynamics of the human personality in the context of an individuals needs. It is evident that field work varies in quality and quantity. It is imparted under supervision and guidance of trained and experienced person(s) in social work. Therefore, it is seen as a two-way process. The student is helped through social work supervision, so that he can work in a complex, intricate and composite social environment. In simple words it a can be said that theory without practice is empty and practice without theory is meaningless.

Chellam of I MSW was placed in Gramium Voluntary Organization Kulithalai, Karur (Dt).The trainee was assigned the task of procuring practical training in the community development settings.

v Psychiatric awareness camp v Awareness camp for visually handicapped v Awareness camp on the importance of iodized salt v Awareness on consumerism VII CHILD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES A. Foster Children Programme Living without parents or with one parent and that too in poor families in many ways affects the growth of children. They are not able to get their basic needs fulfilled and majority of them are denied their right to education. VENUS continues to take care of the 26 adopted children. In this noble task some individuals are extending help for their education and health. B. Non-Formal Education (NFE) GRAMIUM conducted NFE in 5 villages for the dropouts and child workers who are illiterates. NFE gave them hope. Since last year, through the NFE classes they learn the 3 Rs of reading, writing and arithmetic. For the illiterates, it is a new experience and for the drop outs it is reliving the experience. 100 such children happily learn their lessons. Some of them will be joining regular school soon. D. Evening Coaching Classes Coaching classes are conducted in the evening after the school hours. The youth of the 5 villages where the classes are conducted take keen interest in the programme. They assist the teachers and even conduct classes. The children now score more marks. Their progress is discussed with the school teachers. The latter appreciate very much the effort taken in the coaching classes to improve their performance. The SHGs also are very much impressed. The SHGs are prepared to support the coaching classes themselves with the youth who extend all help. This is in keeping with the concept of sustainability after withdrawal of external support. Probably this programme will be run by the SHGs from the next year.

VIII. HEALTH AND SANITATION A. Total Sanitation Campaign Venus continued to help the rural families to construct low cost sanitary toilets under the Total Sanitation Campaign in 19 Panchayats at Kulithalai and 20 in Thogamalai block. Totally 548 toilets were constructed up to the ground level with the subsidy of Rs. 500/- each. 78 awareness generation camps (2 camps in each Panchayat) were conducted during this year in Thogamalai Block to motivate the beneficiaries to construct toilets and to provide clarity on health and sanitation. The following topic were dealt with in the programme. o Hygienic handling of drinking water o Personal hygiene o Safe disposal of human excreta o Food hygiene o Animal and solid waste disposal o Liquid waste disposal o Environmental hygiene Similarly 49 cultural programmes were conducted in Thogamalai block in the respective Panchayats covering the same topics. For further motivation the harvest festival of pongal was celebrated as Health Pongal in 4 blocks focusing on sanitation. 3 SHGs in Kulithalai block maintain public toilets. In Innungur Panchayat, the Grama Sabha (Village General Body Meet) passed a resolution banning open air defecation in the entire Panchayat. Thus the rural population is gradually becoming health conscious. Since there is a section of people who are yet to use the toilets, the staff participated in an user group training on toilet usage which helped them to educate and motivate the village communities.

B. Nutrition and Child care During the year five 2 day training on nutrition, balanced diet and child care such camps were organised, 2 at Kulithalai block and Krishnarapuram block. In these camps

the preparation of different kinds of nutritious food with the locally available grains, grams and vegetables were demonstrated. Also demonstration was organised to prepare nutritious powder with locally available grains for children. A total of 325 mothers participated in the camps. C. Community Health Venus continued its interventions in the area of health by organizing health awareness camps and nutrition demonstration camps. The staff helped the government authorities in organizing the Pulse Polio campaign. Under the RCH (Reproductive Child Health) programme, camps were conducted to generate awareness on anemia. This was important as many children were malnourished. During this year, sanitation awareness programmes were conducted to impress upon the participants the need to promote sanitation in the villages and to observe personal, food, water and environmental hygiene. They were exhorted to construct and use sanitary toilets. D. FAMILY COUNSELLING There are numerous confusions disputes, misunderstandings and mistrusts which all lead to tension, hatred, unhappiness and disgust and further to murder, suicide, torture or separation in the families. The best service is to prevent these by counseling. Hence a programme of family counseling was carried out during the reporting period. A Family Counselling Centre with a Counsellor was established for this purpose in Karur with the financial assistance of State Social Welfare Board.

E. WORLD WOMENS DAY World Womens Day was celebrated in Kulithalai and K.R.Puram blocks by the SHGs in association with Mahalir Thittam. Various competitions and sports and games were conducted to bring out the talents of women. In the public speaking competition the women vied with one another in articulating the position, problems and potentials of women. Then speakers from various fields shared their experience and expertise in women empowerment. Awards were presented to the Best SHG (Syambu Poyyamani village), Best

PLF (Panchayat Level Federation) and Best bank (which lent maximum credits to the SHGs). Prizes were distributed to the winners of various competitions, games and sports. The SHGs made all the arrangements for the function at the two places.

F. WORLD WATER DAY Water shortage on one side and pollution on the other side threaten people everywhere. The situation is worse in the villages due to open defecation and unhygienic living conditions. But the village communities are not aware of any of these. Therefore, to generate awareness on the gravity of the situation and to motivate them to rectify it, World Water Day was celebrated on 30.3.2004. Competent speakers provided necessary inputs. There was a debate on the role of individuals and the community in promoting health and hygiene. XIV. CAPACITY BUILDING With the growth of GRAMIUM there was an obvious need to see that the staff were equipped through training to improve their capacity. In order to encourage, create self confidence and to bring out their hidden talents and capabilities, GRAMIUM used to conduct regular meetings and trainings to the staff. Because of all these, they are discharging their responsibilities better, conducting trainings for the SHG members and leaders, imparting training to the target population of other NGOs and staging cultural programmes in the target villages and also for outsiders like police department.
