INTERN SPEAKS

Intern Speaks
As a pandemic situation life became more monotonous and got stuck at a single point. One fine day my friend Ankita found a virtual internship at FMCH India, and I immediately applied as I was interested to learn about community nutrition and how the organization works at the grassroot level.

During my tenure of Internship, I got to know about the field officers, how FMCH was working under this pandemic situation, what preventive measures they take to eradicate malnutrition from the grassroot level in a very holistic way. My biggest learning was about community nutrition, how interventions are done, how to be creative and how to deliver information in a short and simple way in the form of posters and videos.

More than these learnings, FMCH taught me how to be presentable and how to organize everything in life, and most importantly everyone in the organization is so inspiring and the internship program was so good that from sitting right at my place in Kolkata I gained a lot of experience and knowledge of working with FMCH.
I feel extremely blessed to work with this organization and will take all my learnings for my future work.

INTERN SPEAKS

Intern Speaks
I am Ankita Boral, and have completed my Post Graduation in Dietetics and Nutrition from NSHM College of Management and Technology, Kolkata. I did 2.5 months of internship at FMCH during the lockdown.

I was also given the opportunity to write the experiences of the field officers who have been working in FMCH for years. I felt so amazed when I listened to their stories and experiences, they had working in FMCH. They expressed how FMCH has changed their thoughts and myths around nutrition and taught them about its importance, and how they are now educating families on the importance of nutrition, effects of malnutrition, the importance of breastfeeding, and pregnancy care.

I have learned a lot from FMCH during my experience. Though i have missed the field works and visits still I think whatever FMCH has taught me it will be a lifetime experience.

I wish I could have got more time to work with FMCH and gained more knowledge about community public health.

I am extremely obliged to FMCH for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the organization.
