First  Day and Infrastructure

It was good. We were having it in the famous school of area named St. Xavier High School.

It was spacious.

Accommodation and fooding

Since we all were local so we did not require any of them. But for needy it is available in plenty in areas of Bailey Road and Ashok Rajpath in comfortable range.

Main task 

To visit slums for survey and helping them guarantee there rights provided in constitution, like Right to food. shelter, health and sanitation.

Visited rainbow home where we distributed gifts to children.

Group discussions on various issues like gender inequality and how poverty can be eliminated?

We were continuously working there every day for six hours.

Biggest lesson

It had changed my vision towards society especially for poors.

I took oath to help them in getting education which had been fundamentally guaranteed to them and whatever I could do for them as good works can be done anytime and took a resolution to help them by saving 1% of my total money spend on myself monthly.


No stipend.

Best things

This internship had bring a paradigm shift in my understanding of issues and given me a way to give something in return to society.

I learnt to build relationships and to work for the welfare of the society.

Bad things

None. Every participant was contributing equally and were not giving there 100%.

Best memories

We visited science city, Gol ghar, the famous Khaitan market with our friends which made it awesome altogether.

Any other thing

I personally felt humanism devotion, dedication and fairness in every bit of PUCL.
