LAKSHYAM SUMMER INTERNSHIP 2017

TESTIMONIALS
From Volunteer
"Lakshyam gave me the opportunity to work extensively with the children belonging to the ragpicker community attending the remedial school set up by Lakshyam at Arthala, Ghaziabad. This internship not only gave me a chance to teach and interact with the children but also to get an insight into their lives, understand their development, learning needs, and generate self-awareness amongst them. Having worked with the children for 90 hours I feel it was an experience of mutual learning. The head of the NGO and the other interns have been very supportive throughout the internship. I take this opportunity to thank Lakshyam for giving me this great opportunity and wish all the luck for future endeavors."

From Celebrity
