On 14th March’18, I joined FXB India Suraksha Jaipur as a social intern. I had no idea till then, what impact this internship will have on me. I was being assigned the task of preparing an E-Lib module for school kids and side by side teach the Jaipur center kids as a tutor. What began as an internship, transformed into a sense of responsibility soon! From daily class lessons to fun activities, games, meditation, yoga and yes of course dance and music sessions, it was worth spending time with these kids. I named them the “STAR KIDS” of India!
Coming from poor and socially exploited backgrounds, these kids have seen violence and crime from close quarters. The overall attempt of transforming them from that inherited fear and exploitation towards a confident and courageous individual wasn’t an easy task. But the continuous efforts of team FXB and interns like me have surely made an impact in their lives. A positive one! And I hope this arduous task of making their lives better and smooth will be taken and handled responsibly in the future too.
In a nutshell, I rediscovered myself during these 6 weeks amidst a dozen STAR KIDS who had a little in hand but aspire to dream big. I wish they earn name and fame and make it big in life.
