‘Treasures of Innocence’ in the journey of my life

Intern at Treasures of Innocence


For some reason, I wanted to be a part of something which contributed to the welfare of human being around us. Maybe to acquire some humanitarian traits or the bit I inherited from my father who was serving for his country through the armed forces.

Both two reasons mentioned are true to me. I am a student of English Honors, I did my diploma in print media which made me somewhat acquire to write, and presently a freelance journalist.

I got the opportunity through ‘Internshala’ on the web which connected me to one of the most precious treasures out there in the city of joy where I reside. ‘Treasures of Innocence’ (ToI), the NGO which played a serious role towards the betterment of society had accepted me to intern for them.

I got to slowly learn the structure of how ToI worked to make the life around us lively and the environment blissful. ToI starts the process by catching the youngest lives around us who will be the generation to carry the legacy of our nation and the planet. Starting from the scratch, ToI works actively helping children, especially from ‘humble’ backgrounds.

This was my chance and Rani Ma’am who granted me the internship made me a part of them. I started to do my bit which came in the form of assignments given by Ma’am.

The best part was where I got the feel of really working in an NGO as ToI held classes to groom the underprivileged children from around 10 different schools in Kolkata. The smiles on their faces the joyful nature of them the innocence in their hearts moved me. I was awestruck with joy by watching those small girls performing a skit on the stage in ToI’s ‘Catch them Young’ Mega Event which I helped them to practice.

Lastly Rani Ma’am the true founder who found her treasures in those treasures of God has been a source of inspiration. She also gave me the experience to write for their published articles. The journey with them has been a wonderful memory in my mind which I cherish. I hope to continue to be a part of them and see them grow wisely in the coming years. We all can pray and contribute for their success to their startling work.
