My experience with FSD Jinja Virtual Internship Program exceeded my expectations. I feel that I have learned so much regarding sustainable development, paths to pursue women empowerment, and village savings and loans programs while working with Samuel and the Sustain Micro Enterprise Team. FSD and SME were incredible resources and teachers in expanding my understanding of development work, especially in regards to working virtually. I appreciate FSD’s commitment to teaching their interns about Uganda and I loved the Luganda language lessons, buddy chats, and cultural workshops. I am grateful for this opportunity to work with FSD and SME over our winter break and I know the skills and knowledge I have gained from this experience will be useful in my future endeavors of sustainable development projects.
