As I am the social service officer of the Department of Social Services (DSS) which is one of the leading Government Departments of People's Republic of Bangladesh under the Ministry of Social Welfare. The mandate of the Department of Social Services is to provide services to the vulnerable groups of society, the poorest of the poor, the marginalized and the disadvantaged groups. Our service goes further than just bringing services to these groups.
