The SSL is the largest and the most active society of St. Stephen’s College. Founded in 1912 by W.F Ireland and C.H.C Sharp and following the motto “Service above self”, it works for the betterment of the underprivileged sections of the society. The SSL organizes several events and is actively involved in various projects and activities. Regular talks and seminars are conducted throughout the year, inviting people in the field of social service from Governmental and non-Governmental organizations. The following are our major events and projects:
