I study International Development and in third year it is required that we do a work placement, preferably abroad. My area of interest is children’s rights and my university already had a link with DEPDC/GMS, as previous third year students went there on placement.
I sent an application form to DEPDC/GMS because it is an organisation working in the very important and interesting area of Human Trafficking. Originally I did not know very much about human trafficking but once I researched it I knew that I would find the work at DEPDC/GMS interesting and that I could learn a lot from being there. I also hoped that I could put the skills I had learned from my education into practice to help out as much as I could.
