First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

On first day me and another intern and a few foreign volunteers were told about the functioning of the NGO.

It has 3 wings. One is the hospital run by it for the poor and destitute, another is the school and hostel run by the NGO for HIV affected children below 14 years of age.

This NGO is run by a foreigner in Bodhgaya.

They provide food for free.

Main tasks

Basically since I was a law student, I was given the task to research on the procedure for the registration of the school, to search on the remunerations to be given to the employees etc.

Work environment and people

The work environment was very good.

Every one was really enthusiastic since most of them were foreigners. So the NGO had multi diversity work culture.

Best things

Everyone was very friendly and the first and foremost free food. 😀

Bad things

Strict with holidays, only Sundays off.


No stipend

Biggest Lessons

Do not bunk. The director gets really angry when asked for a leave.
