Savera Internship June- July 2016

9/10

I had a great time during my internship with Savera Organization. As soon as i arrived at the Udaipur Airport, I was nicely greeted by one of the staff members, and was brought to the Community centre, which was also where the accommodations were. The centre was beautiful and everyone was very friendly and made sure I had time to relax and settle in my room. The rooms were clean and comfortable. They had all modern convinces which I was not expecting but very happy about. The food was also very good, they had a good variety of Indian and non-Indian food. The village where the centre is based was very peaceful and relaxing and locals were very friendly.

As to the actual work, for the first week we had orientation which allowed us to see all the different projects and learned about the culture. It answered any and all questions that I had which made me very comfortable. I did most of my work in collecting data and creating reports, which gave me a lot of time to talk to the locals and really understand the issues and modes of development in progress. On the weekends I was able to go into the city and explore all the sights. through the organization we got to experience several different events, but my favourite was the dinner and dancing show. I was very cool to experience the traditional way of eating and entertainment, the food was delicious and the dancing was beautiful.

Being here for 2 months gave me a chance to really experience Indian culture, I was even able to learn the basics of Hindi. Overall I had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend this internship to anyone who wants to help and experience a new culture.

How can this program be improved?

The accommodations were great although as it was the raining season the storms made the power go out for a couple of hours.

Amazing Trip with Savera

9/10

I had such a great time on my trip. Everyone was super friendly and staff made sure I had everything I needed. My orientation week was very helpful, I got to learn basics of Hindi, and exactly what work I was going to do, which helped a lot for me to ease into my internship. I got to do so much different work but my favourite was working at the schools. The kids were always so sweet and polite, doing activities with them was so much fun. Overall this trip was eye opening and refreshing to experience a culture so exciting and unique. I'm so happy how welcomed I was by the staff and community. My sincere thanks to Savera Organization for such a great trip!

Sometimes the wifi cut out but it was always fixed quickly.
