We are 2 Law students, Ujjwal and Vikas, from Delhi, pursuing BA LLB (Hons). We came to FSL-India for an internship based on some major social issues that we wanted to work on.
Being law students, we have always identified the areas that need urgent care and support for community welfare and development. This is one of the major aims of FSL-India – Community Development. We worked in the organization for 2 months and fulfilled our purpose to a certain extent, but more appreciable is whatever we learned working in the organization, from the staff and our colleagues.
The focus points for our work were Child Rights and Women Empowerment. Creating awareness on the laws – child rights, women’s rights and other basic laws was where the work started.
Conducting sessions at schools, expanding the knowledge and bringing more and more people under its ambit was successfully achieved. We are glad we had a chance to work on legal social issues that require immediate attention.
However, our list of activities goes far beyond, since we were also learning community living there while living in the experiential centre at Kundapura, Karnataka.
From sustainable agriculture and Ayurveda, cultural visits, interacting with new people to teaching in schools, helping at the migrant tent community
From sustainable agriculture and Ayurveda, cultural visits, interacting with new people to teaching in schools, helping at the migrant tent community centre and making new friends; it was worth working at.
FSL-India is taking a fantastic initiative in rebuilding this world and bringing the required transformation by laying a foundation at this place. We are glad we had an opportunity to work with them. We look forward to having more, similar experiences at the same, or a different place, so we can contribute our share of efforts to the welfare of the community and social services.
