Alanah Nasadyk - Podcast 3: Final Q&A

Post type: 
Blog post

For my final podcast I asked my friends and colleagues, if you could ask me anything about my CAPI internship experience in Japan, what would it be? Using some of their responses, I recorded a questions and answers session to offer some insight into my impressions about interning with CITYNET and living abroad. As always, if you have any further questions don't hesitate to get in touch with me, I would be happy to help and share.

Kip Jorgensen - Podcast 3: Basic Bangla

"Languages are jealous sovereigns, and passports are rarely allowed for travellers to cross their strictly guarded borders" said Rabindranath Tagore, the Bengal poet and Nobel laureate. Difference in language is one of the most fundamental - a divide which remains unabridged by technology and good intentions. Language is perhaps the greatest obstacle facing a CAPI intern during their placement abroad, posing both practical and existential challenges.

Shannon Doyle - Podcast 3: The Interview

Post type: 
Blog post

For my last podcast I am going to interview my co-worker, Anna. CMA has four main areas they operate in and these are in; policy and public advocacy, direct assistance, research and information, and networking and partnerships. Anna is the case officer and provides direct assistance to help vulnerable and distressed migrant workers and their families. In this, Anna documents cases and aids them in their corresponding welfare and legal needs. There are other avenue distressed OFWS may use, such as other NGOs, however abuses continue to be underreported.
