First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

We witnessed the pathetic scene of slum area lying in an industrial area. Though the government school was well maintained. Infrastructure was just okay. But the coordinators Yash and Ritika were welcoming.

Main tasks

Survey and analysis on Child beggary and Child Rights.Mapping of the beggars in Chandigarh streets.

Interview with child beggars and helping in their rescue operation.

Work environment and people

The work environment of the office was well and fine.Our coordinators were really amazing.The best part was to work with the interns from different areas which were ready to be change makers.

Our coordinators put their best hand forward to make the internship a good learning experience with maximum exposure.

Best things

We actually witnessed the pathetic conditions of a slum area in a close focus. The best part was to play a hand in detective in mapping beggars and helping in freeing one of them was the ecstatic moment.

Also teaching the tiny tots and the first time street play was unforgettable experience. Dancing with them was really amazing.

Bad things

Away from the main city. It was quite shocking seeing the children’s parents which were not ready for their children to be taught.

Stipend

Valuable use of registration fee. Thus no question regarding no stipend.

Biggest Lessons

Money management. To be independent and never to intern alone in an NGO.

Any Other Thing

Got certificate after the completion of the internship. Every law student should at least once try a hand to make a change in other’s life especially the poor children. It gotta be an unforgettable experience.
