Work environment, People
A very healthy work environment. The people were co-operative & dedicated.
The very idea of social service by WAY of internship where the interns taught detecting problems as well as giving solutions that to legally.
There is always a scope of improvement. Nothing bad as a whole but a clarity in planning the tasks could have been better.
Main lesson: A sincere initiative can turn into a mass movement, so one must keep trying.
For such a noble cause, they need volunteers not just interns
