First Day Formalities Initial Impressions
The day on which I joined CRC; I was given an orientation on child rights. In this, I came to know about the various rights for the children along with the laws functioning in India as well as World protecting child rights.
Initial impression was very good as the office was very clean and well maintained. I was shown my place of working and other important places in the premise.
The formalities were that I have to give attendence by signing on a register. In the evening I have to maintain the log book.
On the first day, I was given the task to write a press note for the event which was going to be conducted the next day. Through that, I learnt so many fundamentals of press note writing. Next day, I was engaged in the event in Khilkhilahat Centre.
There, I was saw various talented children and that scene was a perfect example of the quote that “The talent of India lies in poor.” After that, I was engaged in the Proposal Writing & Newsletter Publishing of CRC. In the process of that, I was able to learn how to work on various software like Coral Draw, Microsoft PowerPoint, etc.
During the last days of my internship, I got the opportunity to do documentation of the “State Consultation on Child Protection” organised by Bachpan Bachao Andolan and Weaker Section, CID, Bihar.

On the last day of Internship, I was given a warm farewell and a stipend of Rs. 1500 with a book of Constitution of India.
I was able to learn how to work on various software like Coral Draw, Microsoft PowerPoint, etc. I was made to meet many important personalities in the field and grasp so many information related to child rights through various seminars which I attended during the course of my internship.
There were no such bad things in the office.
