Maya Lanze Lama
During the eight weeks of my internship, between 2nd May to 24th June, 2016. I had the opportunity to take part in various public health projects organized by BNMT Nepal. This included psychosocial counselling sessions (MHPSS) in local schools and women’s groups around Kathmandu, as well as health camps and water & sanitation (WASH) projects in Sindhupalchowk and Nuwakot districts. I went on project sites with program coordinators and other staff members, which enabled me to work with different people in different contexts and learn more about these projects while providing my assistance. I also took part in report writing for field activities and proofreading the organization’s reports. On the other side, I conducted a study for a needs assessment on cerebral palsy in Nepal and visited various organizations working in the sector in order to map the services available. I also conducted interviews with parents of children with cerebral palsy with the help and guidance of one of BNMT’s counsellor, Ms. Aroja Maskey. Through all of this, I was able to develop and improve my professional skills, as well as my Nepali!
Overall, this internship was an invaluable learning experience as I was given the opportunity to take part in almost every aspect of the organization’s projects, which gave me a better understanding of how things work and a greater confidence to work in the development sector someday. I would like to thank everyone at BNMT Nepal for this opportunity and for welcoming me to the team for these eight weeks.
