My experience at the Scead Foundation has been eye-opening, Myself – Sai Krishnaand my Friend- Shiv Kumar Gowda took up our internship at SCEAD (Space for Children in Education Art and Development)FOUNDATION as part of our Social Responsibility Project for our Under-graduation program.We began our internship after a brief introduction about the Scead Foundation. and its projects that were taken up by them, Our Mentor was Mr. Siju Thomas Daniel who was also the Founder of Scead Foundation told how they are working hard, day and night in spreading knowledge and education in rural India, empowering the visually impaired, disabled and underprivileged people and creating an inclusive society which provides equal opportunities for them, we were briefed about the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) based in South Korea. IPYG aims to unite the youth of every nation, and pave the way to a peaceful future for our world. Inorder to take suggestions for world peace I and my teammate Shivkumar visited  St.Pauls School and Presidency Pre-university college Bangalore,we interacted with a lot of students about how they as  youth could contribute towards world peace,how they(youth) could help create a peace zone where only peace would exist  for an upcoming generations and solutions for the same we made a video of the responses of students and sent it to IPYG . We had a very good platform for us to gain knowledge and understand what people thought and knew about world peace.

We also visited Slums of BTM Layout Bangalore while we walked in the place looked shabby and filled with tiny shacks were everybody lived. We werevery anxious and imagining on how those people lived there.
We gathered nearly 25 to 30 kids of the area at the assembly point, we played games, organized competitions such as running race, frog race, kabaddi etc. amongst them. we also distributed chocolates and pencils as gifts for winners of the competition, we also interacted with the kids about the need for education and how important it was to attend schools to gain knowledge to survive in today’s world. The children were highly co operative and very social towards us. They had fun playing and interacting with us. And realized how privileged we were to live our comfortable lives.
Through this internship we were able to gain a lot of knowledge and understanding about various aspects such as world peace, livelihood of different people etc. all this will be an unforgettable experience for us in our lifetime.We thank Our Mentor Mr. Siju Thomas (Founderof SCEAD FOUNDATION) for giving us the opportunity to take up such initiative and for helping us be a part of SEAD FOUNDATION and Its Projects.Yours faithfully
