Human rights internship
Submitted by P.Kaushal - - | July 25, 2016
My time at my internship site certainly solidified my passion for the law and human rights. After spending 10 weeks working in a new country, assisting local residents even with the language barrier & adjusting to a new work environment, I feel ready more than ever to take on whatever challenge I will face in the future. I have learned to appreciate where I come from and my time with my internship site has inspired me to dream bigger and always commit my life to fighting for basic human rights.
OT in Khayalitsha
Submitted by Andrea Nosich - Purdue University Calumet | July 05, 2016
At my internship I worked with various clients and patients ranging from a couple months old to elders with diverse backgrounds and needed areas of therapy. I was grateful to be in such a work environment and experience and gain so much. I had so much hands on experience that I would not get anywhere else. The skills I gained range from therapy techniques for paediatrics to elders with cerebral palsy, autism, strokes, aplasias, head injuries and much more. As well as birthing, immunisation and emergency experience.
The existential act, not the existential word

Interning as a therapist here in Cape Town has been of tremendous value to my trade. To sit back and imagine a big change in your day-to-day life can be inviting. I'd say to this announce yourself to the actual change, get your sleeves dirty, and do it with all of yourself. Thanks VAC. Thanks South Africa.

I really enjoyed working at the clinic where I was placed because it gave me great nursing experience while exposing me to a new culture. I was exposed to many different aspects of healthcare and my nursing skills improved greatly as a result thereof.
