You will need to negotiate entry and assignment with the organization leaders and/or staff. At the very least, you should have access to meetings, minutes and other materials of the organization, and be able to interview leaders and members. In exchange, the group may ask you to participate in furthering the group's agenda, carry out a project or event, and/or provide feedback on your observations to them. This effort can be done individually or with other students.
eg: Free birds, an ngo that work for the street children try to fulfil food, shelter and basic needs of children. But the street children coming from different backgrounds need more counselling and caring. Even the staffs in free birds are working with dedication and passion to take care these children in all means; some of the children are not getting enough attention by them. Good education is given to them but morally they are little weak due to their past experiences.:
1) What model or approach to organizing is being used and the steps involved?;
2) Report of the program
3) What are both the strengths and limitations of the group's effort?;
4) What opposition and allies does it have?;
5) What roles do the organizers and leaders play?;
6) What has been accomplished? Were there any disappointments, failures or defeats?;
7) What lessons did you learn?
Attend a meeting of a community organization or some local government meeting (Gramasabha), civic body or neighborhood organization (eg. block association,, women's group, SHG) concerned with a neighborhood or issue; preferably an organization which is working to improve conditions, policies or services. This will give you first hand experience of community event.
