Since 1983, the social work community has always celebrated the World Social Work Day (WSWD) across the world. This event was initiated by the International Federation of Social work (IFSW) which was later joined by the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW).
In Puntland, the event was organised by Puntland State University Social work students at Washington IDP camp
