Students have youthful energy and inspiration. They can play an important role to remove illiteracy from the society. They can utilize their vacations in giving basic education to the illiterate people. They can set up night schools in their localities.
Population growth is a great problem in our country. Students can tell the general masses to adopt family planning and check population growth.
Students can encourage the poor people to send their children to school. They can tell people the evils of early marriage and dowry system. They can make people aware of the results of environmental pollution. They can also build strong social resistance against drug addiction, child-trafficking, gambling, women repression, acid throwing and eve-teasing.
The service of the students in the field of national health is very important. Female students can teach the illiterate women folk how to bring up their children and how to take care of their health.
