Experience of Our Past Interns

My time interning at Nirman was an amazing opportunity to learn more about sustainable urban agricultural practices. Coming to India, I wanted to experiment more with rooftop agriculture, and Nirman readily offered me the resources, space, and support I needed to carry out my project. I learned so much during my time at Nirman, and all the staff members were incredibly friendly, caring, and helpful in everything I did. My involvement with Nirman also gave me the opportunity to travel, enjoy some Indian cuisine, and immerse myself in the culture of Odisha. I loved being an intern at Nirman and greatly admire the work they do. -Michael Wideman

“I want to thank NIRMAN for giving me the opportunity to serve as an intern in 2015. This internship has definitely increased my interest in pursuing a career in the development sector. I have gained lots of knowledge during my internship. The entire team of NIRMAN never treated as an intern during my internship, I always felt like a part of the team. Thanks all for your support and kind coordination. I feel happy, now I am working with NIRMAN as a programme Associate.” -Shusri Sangeeta Das,
Utkal University, Bhubaneswar

“I had a wonderful experience with NIRMAN in 2015 as a volunteer intern. It was my first time visiting India and the NIRMAN team made me feel like I was at home. NIRMAN is involved in many great projects in a diverse range of areas in Odisha and I am confident that its grassroots approach will continue to have a positive influence on many communities.” --Fatima Noor Khan,

“Thank you so much for the past 5 months. It has been amazing and I couldn't have done anything without NIRMAN's support. The team is incredible and I'm impressed by the work NIRMAN is engaged with. I hope the organization will keep up the cool work.” --Kaitlin Moore,
