About Program

This IFP will be focused on Monitoring and Evaluation, specifically with two groups that we have worked with for more than a decade. The first is a national consortium of women’s microfinance groups, a project The New School has been involved with for a decade. These “Self-Help Groups” ostensibly form around small business development and income generation, but many of the women do not participate in those endeavors yet seem to reap benefits from group participation. The New School has been monitoring group members’ economic performance for five years, with significant success in raising women and their families out of poverty, and this year we would like to also do an in-depth examination of the non-financial benefits, conducting a quantitative survey on psychosocial benefits. The second organization is a child welfare agency that works with families living in multidimensional poverty, with interventions also in microenterprise and income generation.

Yes, I recommend this program

Great experience

While I was unsure of my final research until 31 days abroad, I was able to situate myself in Buenos Aires with the help of Lena Simet and Michael Cohen of The New School. This was a life-changing experience and I would recommend Argentine travel to anyone interested in media, culture, or economics.

Argentina has many economic issues. However, The New School provided wonderful access to Villa 20 and Villa 31 while I was abroad. I would never have had such access to government officials if I were working under any other school. If someone is leaning toward economic studies, Buenos Aires would be a great place to visit and research. Further, those interested in public policy and international negotiations would benefit from this experience.

Much thanks to Fernando Bercovich for guiding us through the ends and outs of the country. He was the kindest mentor while we had to adjust to a completely different atmosphere in comparison to New York City.

What would you improve about this program?
Contacts with local NGOs could be more secure. For the most part, finding or operating an internship was on the responsibility of the individual.
