ASWAS - Amrita Social Workers Association
Introduction
Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham offers Master of Social Work (MSW) program at its Amritapuri and Coimbatore campuses to train social work professionals who can provide humanitarian and charitable services to the needy around the globe. Renowned humanitarian Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, also known as Amma, is the inspiration and guide for all Amrita University's programs. The University's affiliation with the Mata Amritanandamayi Math is fortuitous for MSW students as the Math's social services are wide-ranging in India and abroad. Its efforts have been recognized around the world; it is one of the few non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to be given Special Consultative Status by United Nations (U.N.). 

The Amrita MSW program prepares students to independently undertake challenging assignments with oppressed, at-risk, vulnerable and general populations and helps them evolve as human beings with the commitment and service-orientation necessary to reach out to the most under-privileged sections of society.
ASWAS is an assocation of current msw students and the alumi to promote ASWAS Humanitarion activities .

To prepare the students for specialised, evidence and rights-based practice among the oppressed, at risk, vulnerable and general populations. The programmes of the department will provide rigorous intellectual base, opportunities for skill development and a value-based educational experience.
