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.
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.
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.
Away from the main city. It was quite shocking seeing the children’s parents which were not ready for their children to be taught.
Valuable use of registration fee. Thus no question regarding no stipend.
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.
