Fighting for Women’s Rights: Our Experience as interns at Svalorna in Rural India

FUF Uppsala and FUF Jönköping invite you to a lecture about the experiences from an internship with Svalorna in India!

Are you thinking about doing an internship? Maybe doing it abroad? Or maybe you are just interested in learning more about the situation for women in rural India? This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about how development work operates in practice and the difference it makes.

Josefin Nilsson and Amanda Ömar have recently finished their internship at the organisation Grameena Mahila Okkuta, which they got through Svalornas internship program. They will share the experience and knowledge they gained through their time in rural India, where they mostly worked with women’s rights. For instance, how a grass root organisation like the Grameena Mahila Okkuta can work on a local level to reduce the obstacles facing women in India due to patriarchal structures, such as child marriage and domestic violence. Moreover, the lecturers will give an update about the current situation for the people in rural India and how they as interns worked to ameliorate the situation for the poor and vulnerable.

The lecturers will also introduce Svalornas internship program – the requirements to become an intern, where you can go on an internship and how the application process works.

There will be time for asking all your questions at the end of the lecture.

When: 25th of May at 17.00-18.15

Where: HLK Jönköping in Hb116 and on Zoom

The lecture will be showed on screen at HLK, but you can also participate on Zoom. Observe that registration through this link is required for both physical and digital participation. FUF Jönköping will serve fika for those coming to campus!
