ABSTRACT

This paper discusses some innovative social work response to poverty in India at the community level promoted by volunteers and professional social workers alike. Three case studies in relation to poverty in India are reviewed and suggest that there is a great need for inclusion of specific content in social work training around poverty and working with poverty groups. Suggestions such as legal and regulatory framework for social work training and practice are also forwarded.
