How Did you Apply?
I applied for their winter internship programme through their official mail id- email@example.com (also provided on their website). The institute offers internships throughout the year on a monthly basis. One should apply 15 days in advance of the day from which they want to intern. The acceptance is duly communicated within 5 days (maximum).
About the Organization
PCGT is a registered trust founded by B.J. Deshmukh, Shri J.F. Ribeiro, and Dr R.K. Anand. It aims at promoting accountability and transparency in governance. Through programmes like Youth for Governance, Kuch Aur, and Corruption Hatayenge the organization has tried to inculcate the value of “Sadbhavna” in young citizens.
First Day Formalities
The internship was conducted in a virtual mode due to the Covid-19 pandemic protocols. Every intern was added to a WhatsApp group and brief introductions were given. The trustees of the NGO welcomed us on the first day and we were informed of the working of the organization and its social impact. The major motive was to make everyone a part of the team and work for transparency in governance.
All the interns had to attend sessions in which primarily the importance of RTI was focused upon and the bare act of RTI was taught in a clause-by-clause manner. The “Youth for Governance” initiative allowed us to take up a contemporary social issue and research upon the same under the able guidance of mentors.
The “Kuch Aur” sessions provided a one-to-one interaction with under-privileged kids whom each intern had to teach a life-long value. Overall, the internship was a wholesome learning experience and even left you enriched with gratitude for small things in life.
The internship was educative and focused on prevalent issues. Further, it provided an insight into the working of legal systems at the ground level. The mentors were very helpful and guided you through every step.
The sessions were a bit long leading to a lack of focus towards the end. Further, the timings of the sessions might be a hassle for some people as they are spread throughout the day.
