Glimpses of JSIP 2015

Jugnu organised its first ever Summer Internship Programme-JSIP 2015 in the months of June and July 2015 where almost 40 students from various colleges and professionals from various organisations came together to understand the working of Jugnu. The Social Entrepreneurship internship was aimed at creating a sense of social responsibility among the youth as well as to inculcate soft skills such as leadership, team work, problem solving abilities and the ability to start their own initiative with Jugnu as an execution platform.
Each intern was assigned a menter who would guide them to explore various activities by Jugnu. The team carried out surveys of various slums in Delhi, activities in the Learning centre, awareness programmes and worked on technical projects with engineering students to make a prototype of solar cooker. The feedback at the end of the programme were valuable to us for the development of our organisation. The following are some responses that we would like to share:
