The Greenpeace office is in a flat its not too small nor too big but the office hardly mattered to me because I was given the job of Fundraising in which I had to give presentations, convince people and ask them for donations.
The Fundraising team is divided into the groups of 3 to 4 employees with 2 or 3 interns.
As I already mentioned the job of fundraising which was basically the main task but as the month of June is celebrated as the Environment Month I also worked in the office for the data entry and other office works.
Work Environment, People
Really good and friendly people.
Learning people skills.
The internship having little relevance to law.
Rs 200 per day, Rs 6000 per month
Everyone cannot afford foreign degrees or could bear the expenses of college there were some people who did not had much of a great qualification but had a good reputation in this field so the biggest lesson that I learnt was that life is not what you want but life is what you make it.
The determination and courage of the employees taught me a great lesson of endeavour and struggle and dust off the problems in every way possible.
