Social Development in Your Community
Social development refers to the process of enhancing the well-being of every individual in society to allow them to attain their full potential. The success of society is closely related to the well-being of each and every citizen. Social development denotes investing in people. It involves the elimination of barriers to enable citizens to easily pursue their dreams with confidence and dignity. Social development also entails the refusal to accept that people who live in poverty will always be poor. It is about helping people so they reach the path to self-sufficiency.
Social development involves educating the youth about the values, knowledge and skills that enable a person to relate to others successfully and to contribute in positive ways to family, school and the community. These invaluable knowledge is passed on to children directly by those who care for and teach them, as well as indirectly through a child’s social relationships within his family or friends, and in his participation in the culture around him.
An affordable, high quality health care system is necessary for society to thrive. When people know that their medical needs are being well taken care of, they can be more productive in their work. When employers have good employees, their business is more likely to succeed. And when businesses succeed, the entire economic system is more likely to continue thriving. An investment today in good health care programs can offers numerous benefits for society.
