This is a full time residential internship. We have interns joining us on a regular basis from Indian and foreign universities, to contribute to our social service programmes. Although, we DO NOT offer a stipend, we fully take care of accommodation, food and recreation of the interns. Indeed, we maintain, right below our office at Paldi, central Ahmedabad, a functionally equipped and furnished flat-turned-hostel for interns coming to us from around the world intermittently.
Internship duration may range from 6-52 weeks. Preference will be given to long-term seekers, and those who can start the soonest.
