First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
On the first day I was introduced to every working at the NGO. The organisation takes up a lot of projects headed by different people. I was also introduced to all the projects and asked to choose the project I would like to work on.
Making presentations for the NGO’s events
Help with arrangements of their workshops
Visiting the poor kids and reviewing their situation
Determining whether a person requires monetary help or not.
Work environment and people
The work environment was really nice. Although everyone was involved in their own projects they were all friendly and helped in case of any queries or trouble.
Best thing was the feeling you get when you interact with the less fortunate and realise you are contributing to make their life a little better.
The bad part was that you had to choose any one project and had to work only on that particular project.
An effort made for the happiness of others lifts us above ourselves.
Any Other Thing
Working with an NGO is a once in a lifetime experience we all must have.
