Shubham Kashyap Kalita, 2nd year, National Law University and Judicial Academy, Assam.
I’ll be sharing my internship experience at Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation. In short, it is also known as KSCF. KSCF is a Non-profit organisation founded by Nobel Peace Laureate Mr Kailash Satyarthi. Its main purpose is to protect the children from the horrific acts of violence in the society. It envisions a society where every child is free, safe and educated.
A23, Mathura Road, Friends Colony West, New Delhi, Delhi 110065.
Duration. Days of Work. Timings
There is no fixed Duration. The intern can choose his/her own duration of the internship. My internship was from 1st July 2018 to 30th July 2018. We have to work for 5 days a week, as Saturdays and Sundays are holidays. Timing was from 10 AM to 5 PM.
How to apply
The process to apply at KSCF is via email. One may mail one’s CV and letter of recommendation at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will further communicate to you via mail or phone.
On 1st July 2018, my internship journey started. There are no first-day formalities there. As I reached there, I had been contacted by the Internship Coordinator. He had an interaction with me and then I was being introduced to the Managing Director of the Campaign Team (as I had been inducted into that department), I was introduced to the whole team.
The officials were very friendly and the official environment is totally peaceful. I didn’t feel like that was my first day of internship.
The main task was to assist the campaign department in their activities. There were various campaigns led by the team where we had to prepare data related to those campaigns. During my internship, we all were working on the new Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill 2018 that has been passed recently by the Lok Sabha in the Monsoon session.
There were various works like making the list of MPs, follow-ups, invitations etc. Apart from that, I was engaged in various workshops conducted by the team. I had to make reports of the activities throughout the month. Overall, there is no major task, all you have to assist the team in their work.
In Short, I would like to say that my overall experience was awesome. This was probably the best internship till now. All my office staffs were very good and they were always ready to help me as well as others. They always try to maintain a friendly environment so that the interns would feel comfortable and enjoy their work. They treat all the interns equally, works had been divided equally so everyone gets the chance to work on whatever they were doing.
Further, my co-interns were so good, we all become good friends within a short period and had lots of fun during the internship. Apart from that, I get the chance to meet Mr Kailash Satyarthi in the office which was a very inspiring moment for me. I received my certificate at the end of my internship and also a letter of recommendation from the senior official. I had received an offer of being the Youth Ambassador of their campaign.
I would suggest every law student to intern once there as being a law student, working for a social cause is a must. And by being in an organization, you get the chance to contribute to a great cause. KSCF has been working for the protection of children for years, and by being a part of it you will be able to contribute your ideas towards eradicating this problem from our society. Moreover, you will get the privilege to work under the guidance of the Nobel Peace Laureate, Kailash Satyarthi.
