Socially Useful Productive Work (SUPW)
is a purposive productive work and services related to the needs of the child and the community, which will be proved meaningful to the learner. Students learn to work as a team and to work with skill and deftness. It was introduced in 1978 by the Government to promote Gandhian
values and educational ideas of Mahatma Gandhi.
In addition to developing individual skills, SUPW aims to help develop among the students the habit to work as a community, encourage community thinking, increase awareness of scientific advancements and develop a scientific outlook. Through this ancillary activity mandated in the curriculum, the training acquired in the classroom is expected to help students to become aware and solve day-to-day problems of the community.
