How did you apply for the internship?

I had applied for this internship through LinkedIn.

First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression

My very first impression of this organization was that how selflessly they were working for the welfare and good being of underprivileged children of our society.

This noble organization that I interned with is not only providing for meals and education of the innocent children but also taking care of their mental and physical well being.

The kids also get to celebrate their birthdays.

All this made me realize that – law is all about maintaining a balanced and just society.

What more can we ask for in a society when a foundation like Muskurahat is going out and giving their best for the upliftment and well-being of the future generation of our India.

Their work inspired me to the core and so I decided to take up an internship opportunity with them.

Main Tasks

My main task in the organization was to run a legal awareness campaign for the young children.

Practically, to make our society aware of the threats and dangers that children face in in the real world.

The kind of impact, traumas caused to them have on their mindset and how it hampers their growth and also what we, as a society, can do to eradicate this element of fear and dangers in their lives.

In addition to this, I also ran an online donation campaign where anyone who wanted to help these kids financially could contribute by pitching in whatever amount of money they liked.

The money collected was used to support a child’s educational and physical well being.

Interestingly, a donation of a thousand rupees can help support a child for almost a month.

This is what intrigued me the most about this NGO.

They managed their finances so well that a bare minimum amount of just a thousand rupee could put food on their table for a month and also pay for their education.

I know it sounds a little impossible but that’s what Muskurahat does and all the relevant information about the same is available on their website.

Work Environment

This was an online internship and so my work was composed on a laptop and my phone.

My interactions with all the executives of the NGO and the pitchers were extremely informative and refreshing.

Good Things

By what I’ve mentioned so far, it must be pretty evident how good my experience has been as the NGO.

It  itself does the whole amount of noble deeds and the more I speak about how wonderful my brief association with them was, the less it will be.

This was my first internship and I would totally recommend any first year law student to intern with an NGO for a first hand experience.

Since an internship like this broadens our perspective of the society and brings us face to face with the legal problems persisting in our day to day lives.

Bad Things

There wasn’t any bad thing about this internship experience of mine.

Stipend

INR 1,000/- 

Details about accommodation and commute

It was an online internship and so I worked from home.

Anything else?

Choose a internship that you can connect with and not just perform as a task.

It will surely help you grow and create a foundation for your further internships.
