Elsie Daoust - Blog Post 1: Metro Manila: Still one of Asia's Pearls

Post type: 
Blog post

It is hard to believe that I’ve been in Manila for just about three months now. My internship at Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA) has thus far proven to be an experience far beyond what I expected, with everyday being full of learning opportunities and new experiences. While my placement has been an integral part of my time here, being based in Manila, one of the world’s largest cities, has in itself been a cultural and educational experience like no other.   

Kip Jorgensen - Podcast 2: Ramadan in Bangladesh

Post type: 
Blog post

In this, my second podcast for the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives, I discuss the recently-concluded Holy Month of Ramadan. A time of spiritual re-commitment for Muslims, Ramadan is also a month of community. In this theme I have included portions of conversations shared during Iftar. This podcast will briefly describe the month of Ramadan in Bangladesh, and what it means for a CAPI intern.
