World Social Work Day 2020: Promoting the Importance of Human Relationship


Social Work is mainly profession, academic discipline and practice-based work that promote social change and sustainable development, social cohesion and the empowerment and liberation of people which directly goes for social justice, human resource, collective responsibility and respect for diverters and central to social work though.

Social Work Day is the key day in the year that social worker worldwide stands together to enhance our common message globally so it will always celebrate in the third month’s third week’s third day every year. Social work originated from the western country like the UK and USA for the first time in the 19th century and Jane Addam is regarded as the father of social work.

Every year the Social Work Day is celebrated with different themes globally. So, the theme for this year is “Promoting the Importance of Human Relationship”. As a social work student, we must have that creativity and capability to maximize the development of human potential and fulfilment of human needs through equal commitment working with and enabling people to achieve the best possible level of personal and social well-being. In addition to this, Achieving social justice through social development and social change only happen when we create a good relationship with everyone around our surrounding. The theme itself a challenge because it gets success when we create a healthy environment for people for this purpose. Accordingly, when we develop a healthy relationship with client, colleagues and student, we engage in a mutual process, each party give and take, teach and learn, cries and rejoice so that we must know each other for a better relationship as a social worker and help to involvement in people healthy relationship.

When I focus on technology and facts, in my world, we rely on the strength of human relationship to survive and thrive. We are born into the vulnerable world, weak and in need of physical and emotional nurturing. Immediately we reach out to secure our relationship. These original attachment are key to shaping a lifetime connection to others. The strength of the original human relationship provides a path into the future, helping to what is possible.

In this world, everyone came vulnerable and leave this world though we have many challenges and do come negative thought to live so people involve and may do wrong things which cause a problem in our society so as a youth or almoners we must have that individualization, acceptance, self-determination, controlled emotion involvement, confidentiality,non-judgmental and purposeful expression to do overcome such thing in near future for those people to change and provide an opportunity for sustainable change and development for our nation’s worldwide.

As in World Social Work Day, we are celebrating this day not only for promoting but also adding value to people’s life and also to show gratitude upon the social workers who have made human life meaningful. Social worker is the person who wants to be happy by helping the needed person with their vision and cherish and enhance better in future for sustainable development for the nation.

So, let’s celebrate this day with joy and with a better hope for the future.
