Ubuntu: I am Because We are!


World Social Work Day is celebrated on the third Tuesday of March every year. In 2021, the World Social Work Day is on 16 Mar. The three major international social work organizations, the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW), the International Council on Social Welfare (ICSW), and the International Federation of Social Work (IFSW) will set the annual theme for the World Social Work day each year.
