Chih Chen - Blog 2: Living in Quezon City: urban development, gender and class

Post type: 
Blog post

Recounting the first few weeks of CAPI training in Victoria, British Columbia, I am reminded of our intern group’s conversations on privilege, anti-oppression, gender-based work, and how these worlds intersect with migrant rights advocacy. In many ways, speaking of privilege set the tone for how I continue to think about how to represent the place that I—temporarily, and with awe—live in, struggle with, and am trying to describe all the time.

Valerie Paradiso - Blog 2: Why you should consider doing an internship in the Philippines

Post type: 
Blog post

If you are thinking about doing a CAPI internship and you are unsure where you should be based, this podcast is for you! I have now been interning in the Philippines for 2 months and decided to share five reasons why I think you should consider doing an internship in the Philippines. Keep in mind that the reasons I discuss are very subjective, being based on my past and present experiences. Nevertheless, I am hoping this may be useful for the people at home who are roaming the blogs and podcasts trying to figure out which internship would be best suited for them.

Bridget Woods - Blog 3: Climate change and women's sexual and reproductive health and rights

Post type: 
Blog post

Some of the areas that climate changes impact women differently than men are through migration, conflict, economics, health, food security, and extreme weather, which includes both flooding and droughts. It is important to keep in mind, however, that none of these areas are truly distinct from one another - they are all very interconnected. This blog addresses some specific examples of the intersections and interconnections between climate change and SRHR.

Nadya Jamal - Blog 3: Re-Intergration of migrant workers in Nepal - The Pourakhi-Nepal Safe house

Post type: 
Blog post

In this blog, I share some of my initial experiences of being an intern at Pourakhi including the weeks with sparse periods of excitement. Shifting my focus then to the women's safe house, I make some observations of the culture and day to day activities, including thoughts regarding the contrast and similarities between mental health services in Nepal and Canada. I couldn't help sharing a few photos of Kathmandu's beautiful old neighbourhoods and streets.
