A few social workers while working with the downtrodden and the marginalized communities found that the people they were working with are living under pathetic conditions. These communities are trapped under vicious circle of poverty. Also their awareness level was quite low and they considered it as their fate and were totally hopeless for any change in it. these social workers believed in the “Establishment of an exploitation free society”. They firmly believed that all the sections of the society must be self reliant and at the same time inter and intra dependency should be there.
