Experience of Our Past Interns

-Michael Wideman

University of Waterloo, Canada

My time interning at KZSVS was an amazing opportunity to learn more about sustainable urban agricultural practices. Coming to India, I wanted to experiment more with rooftop agriculture, and KZSVS readily offered me the resources, space, and support I needed to carry out my project. I learned so much during my time at KZSVS, and all the staff members were incredibly friendly, caring, and helpful in everything I did. My involvement with KZSVS 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 KZSVS and greatly admire the work they do.
“I want to thank KZSVS 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 KZSVS 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 KZSVS as a programme Associate.”

“I had a wonderful experience with KZSVS in 2015 as a volunteer intern. It was my first time visiting India and the KZSVS team made me feel like I was at home. KZSVS 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.”
“Thank you so much for the past 5 months. It has been amazing and I couldn’t have done anything without KZSVS’s support. The team is incredible and I’m impressed by the work KZSVS is engaged with. I hope the organization will keep up the cool work.”
