The office was full of healthy staff. All the interns were asked to accommodate the conference hall, where we got the briefing of the NGO. Then finally the Chairperson came he asked each of us for a personal introduction.

We were provided a form and were asked to submit the bonafide certificate with two photographs.


The office compound is very big and decent.

Main tasks

Field Work: If there is any strike in the city then all interns are taken, but if its some village trip then you have option and all the expenses of the trip are given by them. (Most probably they take students to Bageshwar, Uttrakhand)

Research Work: If you do accept research work, they have a lot because RLEK is leading NGO and they work for the welfare of the women and child. Research work would be finding case Laws, making presentation for upcoming projects etc.

Work environment and people

Work environment is very cool as chairperson and all staff have the good support of the city officials and public as well.

Best things

It’s basically a proper NGO where you would get real NGO task to perform. You would get to know the problem faced by people living on hills of Uttrakhand.

Bad things

Field work is very hard.



Biggest Lessons

When you go on for the field work keep a good First Aid Kit.
