Byline: Tasleem Nawaz
A batch of 18 graduates and under-graduates studying at various universities across Pakistan were awarded certificates at the closing ceremony of the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund Summer Internship Program. The ten-day long program enabled interns to gain insight into dynamics of the development sector with focus on PPAF working model.
The Internship Program was delivered in two phases comprising of in-house training sessions and field visits. While the in-house sessions provided information on various components under which PPAF carries out development projects for marginalized communities, the field exposure provided students with on ground experience and knowledge about challenges-and opportunities, encountered by PPAF, its implementation partners and the communities themselves.
The interns visited PPAF-supported interventions in Multan, Muzaffargarh, Abbottabad and Haripur where they learnt about implementation strategies, impact and sustainability of different projects including institutional development, livelihood, education, community infrastructure and micro-credit interventions.
