Paraspar and Gram Vikas have come together to provide enriching experience of observing and participating in the working of an organisation which identifies and solves community issues through community based solutions.
Thirty (30) students from colleges/universities across India will be selected and placed in Odisha for a period of 30 days in the month of June to get an evolved understanding of the various projects Gram Vikas is currently working on. These projects range from education, water and sanitation, health, social housing, alternative livelihoods and renewable energy.
All the selected students will be divided into several groups to work on any one of the projects. There will be a two-day residential workshop before the commencement of the internship, which is mandatory for every intern.
This internship requires you to stay for a minimum period of four weeks uninterruptedly in your allotted district/project in Odisha.
Accommodation will be provided by the organisation but the students have to bear the cost of their food and travel expenses.
