My time at Herbertpur can be divided into two phases. During the first phase, I became acquainted with the different projects by visiting several village self-help groups, assisting in the mobile clinics, and helping with training. I attended development-related workshops, which gave me insight on how NGOs are managed and navigate within certain national policies. I also was exposed to the language and became sensitive to cultural norms. During the second phase of my internship, I helped to evaluate one of the main community health projects, “CHASINI,” an adolescent health-awareness program conducted by local peer educators. Using previously-collected data from pre and post tests, I was able to determine the efficacy of the program and provide suggestions for improvement. The evaluation was intended to be used to refine and improve the sustainability of the health education program.
