Intern Report from Lisa AIESEC (Germany)
Going to Mauritius was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life! The six weeks were filled with joy, adventure and great new experiences.
Going abroad is always a big challenge but as soon as you get there, it is all worth it. I got the chance to work for the Global Rainbow Foundation, an international charitable trust founded by Armoogum Parsuramen G.O.S.K. in Mauritius. They strive to advocate legal rights and promote awareness of the daily issues and obstacles faced by the Disabled, as well as helping them to become more autonomous, independent, and simply better equipped to face the struggles of everyday life.
Moreover, I got the chance to participate in site visits and events, like the Medical Assessment of amputees living in Mauritius. One of the most meaningful experiences was the personal visit of amputees at home. All of them are incredibly inspiring and strong people and each story is both sad and inspirational.
I wasn’t quite sure what exactly to expect but even if I’d had expectations beforehand, they would have been overtrumped. It was an incredible experience. I got an insight look into the structure of a nonprofit organization and I learned a lot about their daily work.
