Intern alumni George Benson at the UN in New York
"An internship with CAPI gave me an opportunity to see a part of the world and a way of life that I never would have had otherwise. The emphasis on exploration, reflection, and activism was amazing and helped me to grow as a person and as a member of the global community. There are few things more valuable to me than the time I was able to spend in Bangladesh thanks to CAPI." George Benson.

Since 2003, CAPI's Internship Program has funded over 150 international placements. Students and graduate have gone on to complete graduate work, returned to the region to work, and many of our former interns and scholars remain engaged with the Centre through our alumni and peer mentorship opportunities, research intiatives and CAPI events and projects. 

Our intern and scholar alumni are listed according to their year of departure.

Ainslee is a fourth-year Child and Youth Care Student at the University of Victoria, focusing her final practicum on international practice in South Africa. Bringing forth a holistic, strength-based perspective developed from her education, Ainslee is thrilled to be exploring her interest in social justice while working with Ukulapha, a collaborative grassroots organization that works with a township elementary school to improve learning and teaching conditions. She is so grateful for CAPI for providing her with this amazing opportunity to work with and learn from the people in Slangspruit.

capstone project

One of the most memorable days of my internship was June 16, South Africa’s national holiday, Youth Day. A day that came from tragedy but is now a commemoration that empowers youth of today. For my capstone project, I created a video that will walk you through Youth Day at Slangspruit Primary School. This included a march through the township, performances by the school’s dance team, and displays by an afterschool art program that I facilitated.

capstone project

My Capstone project, Finding Voice, is a collaborative zine which attempts to showcase and explore individual voice embedded within a collective voice. How do we celebrate and acknowledge our unique differences, as well our intersections? Finding Voice strives to connect people through a creative mean, which opens a platform for expression that celebrates unique lived experiences in a safe space, while also identifying themes of similarity and running themes which bind us all together, even if just a little bit of humanity. Through this zine, my hope is to indirectly touch upon us vs them narratives and recognize strength within both independence and interdependence. It features submissions from 17+ individuals across different geographical locations, languages, and beliefs responding to the question: “how do you find voice?”.

Emily Clare is a fourth-year student in the Child and Youth Care program at the University of Victoria. In May, she is going to Pietermaritzburg, South Africa to work at Ukulapha. Ukulapha, which means “healing” in Zulu, is a community outreach organization that works with the Slangspruit Elementary school. Emily will assist in teaching English and leadership, and will facilitate day camps when school is out of session. She is looking forward to her internship as she is passionate about building positive, strength-based relationships with children and youth, and is excited about visiting the birth country of her parents.

capstone project

My capstone project is a video about the camps I facilitated for the girls of the township school in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. The camps were geared towards girls aged 9-13, and focused on building self-esteem and leadership, and learning about puberty. The camps were incredibly successful, and I could not have been happier with the results. The girls left camp feeling strong, independent, and beautiful, knowing that they were not alone in the challenges and changes they were experiencing. This video captures the impact of camp and the fun that we had together.

Jacob is an Anthropology student at the University of Victoria. Originally from Nanaimo BC, he loves Vancouver Island and is happy to be going to Indonesia, a country with many amazing islands to explore and learn about. He is interested in the relationship between culture and politics, as well as urban planning, and ethnographic research. Jacob is very excited about the opportunity to work with the Centre for Indonesian Policy Studies in Jakarta and looks forward to learning more about the process of policy making and analysis. He is very grateful to CAPI for making this opportunity possible and is doing his best to learn Indonesian!

capstone project

Apart from Bali, Indonesia is not a huge tourist destination, and it can be a tricky place to live and travel in some respects – especially when it comes to finding information in English. However, once you get past the chaos you realize just how amazing this part of the world is – and after 7 months of craziness I can definitely say Indonesia my favourite place on Earth. My Capstone is a ‘living in Jakarta’ guide, with information that I uncovered, anywhere from translating decade old websites to just chatting with the guy selling chicken at the end of my street. I know this guide will help interns to CIPS after me, who I hope will use this information to enjoy their placement as much as I did.

Alanya is a third-year student completing a double major in Gender Studies and Environmental Studies and a minor in Social Justice Studies. Through these interdisciplinary programs, she has developed a strong interest in the politics of migration, trafficking, and international human rights. In this internship, Alanya will be working with the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women at their International Secretariat located in Bangkok, Thailand. She is very excited for the opportunity to work with the GAATW team and is extremely thankful to both CAPI and GAATW for this unique opportunity to translate her passions into real world actions.  

capstone project

Throughout my time in Asia, I witnessed the importance of critical hope and the power of resilience. Working with topics such as climate change and human trafficking, it can be easy to get lost in negative narratives and forget all the positive initiatives occurring in the world. In order to transcend these common feelings of ‘doom’ and ‘helplessness’ that are active in today’s society, I wanted to use my capstone to highlight resilience and positive news. In order to accomplish this, I asked my cohort about their experiences of witnessing resilience as well as their personal strategies. I also complied positive news, quotes, pictures, etc. into a blog.

Clara is currently finishing up her BA in anthropology and she is very excited to be working with PRIA as a CAPI intern. Her interests are focused on medical anthropology and on understanding how structural forces shape people’s health and everyday realities, and she is keen to learn more about how participatory research methodologies are implemented from the ground up. Outside of school, Clara loves reading, cooking, swimming and being around animals. She is looking forward to discovering new interests while in India and can’t wait to start working with PRIA!

capstone project

For my capstone project, I put together a list of guidelines, based on my own experience, for doing research ethically as an international student or intern. Interns with PRIA have the opportunity to carry out our own research projects in India. As amazing as this was, I found myself constantly struggling with questions, hesitations and doubts about how to implement what I knew about research ethics in a completely different country and cultural context from which I had learned them. My hope for my capstone project is that it will help spark discussions around research ethics and guide future interns and students, in India and beyond, in doing research ethically.

Check out Nick’s blog to read about his experiences and reflections at KSDC!

capstone project

My Capstone project is called "The situation, the school, and the people".

There are four things that I hope my capstone will accomplish:

  1. it will give people a general idea of what has happened/is happening in Karenni state that caused the Karenni people to flee
  2. it will help people understand why the KSDC is such a valuable asset to the Karenni population living in the refugee camps around Ban Nai Soi
  3. it will give people a glimpse of what the students are like at the SDC and what their goals and aspirations are
  4. it will help people understand the tight knit nature of the SDC.

capstone project

Whenever I travel, I love to collect book recommendations. For my Capstone Project, I compiled a list of novels and short stories by Indian authors, as recommended by new friends, colleagues and neighbours in Chennai, India. For each story, I’ve included background information about the author, a short summary of the plot, and a bit of information about where the recommendation came from. I also canvassed the other CAPI interns in my cohort for recommendations, and received book suggestions from Malaysia, South Africa, Indonesia and Japan!

Rachel is also focused on improving the collection and use of data in program design, implementation, and evaluation of economic development projects.

capstone project

Knowledge is power. When it comes to diversifying income and trying to create a better life for one’s self, one’s children, and one’s community, education provides a foundation for lasting change. This workbook is an integral part of a workshop designed to teach about starting, running, and maintaining sustainable income-generating projects. The purpose of this specific course is to educate women on basic business and economic principles to improve the functionality and profitability of their group and individual businesses. The participatory, multi-lingual, and engaging nature of this course is meant to make it accessible to all women – regardless of level of formal education or experience in managing an enterprise. This workbook, along with an explanation and photographs of the workshop, make up my capstone project for my internship working with The SAM Project in Southern Province, Zambia.

Mackenzie is thrilled to have the opportunity to be a CAPI intern at MSRI. Mackenzie is in her final year of a B.A. in Anthropology. Her academic interests center around medical anthropology, including migrant health, food security, and linguistic barriers to accessing health services. Her personal interests include cooking, environmental sustainability, and being in nature. Mackenzie is grateful for a placement at MSRI where she can learn about refugee support programs and forge new relationships. She is looking forward to exploring Malaysia and being challenged by a new work environment.

capstone project

My Capstone project is a blog that I built to showcase some of my work as an intern at MSRI (website design) and what I learned about food culture in Malaysia. My blog contains recipes and descriptions of traditional Malaysian dishes that I ate during my placement. Since I am plant-based I have adjusted the recipes to fit my preferences, while still highlighting the vibrant flavours and local produce that inspire each dish. My hope is that this blog encourages you to try Malaysian cuisine and inspires you to eat more plants!

Christopher Tse is a graduate student in critical social work at the University of Victoria, with a focus on transnational migration and citizenship theory. Before coming back to school, Chris' background in anti-oppressive facilitation, international development, and social justice education led him worldwide to work alongside communities in organizing for social change. With a bachelor's degree in human rights journalism, Chris is passionate about telling stories and perhaps more importantly, dismantling the barriers that prevent people from telling their own stories. He is excited to work with and learn from the the MSRI team and is grateful to CAPI for the opportunity.

capstone project

In the spirit of participatory action research led by and conducted for a community, my capstone project was a program evaluation of MSRI's Emergency Support Program, which offers emergency financial aid to refugees/asylum-seekers in dire situations. Through my case work and conversations with colleagues and more importantly, clients, it became clear there were areas of potential growth where the program could really improve. The goal of this program evaluation was to gauge the program's overall effectiveness, identify determinants of financial insecurity among refugee communities in Kuala Lumpur, and consider implications for change that will ensure the program continues growing towards providing effective and anti-oppressive support for refugees and asylum-seekers.

Lynn is a first year PhD student in the department of Political Science at the University of Victoria(UVic) in Canada. Previously she studied in England where she obtained a BA(Hons) in Geography and a MPhil in Development Studies.

Under the supervision of Dr Feng Xu, Lynn's research interest is in issues of Nationalism and migrant worker exclusion in the eldercare industry in Singapore, her home country. The eldercare industry in Canada, especially Vancouver, has a lot of similarities with that in Singapore. Most domestic and institutional care workers are foreign immigrants, especially from the Philippines, Indonesia, China and Myanmar among others. In Singapore, foreign workers face huge obstacles to social integration as they are not treated with mutual respect from wider society. State laws on immigration are also discriminatory in the way they imply national ownership over 'foreign' bodies, classifying and delineating immigrants in ways that do not do justice to human rights promises. My research endeavours to find a place for 'voices from the bottom', that is allowing care workers themselves to offer perspectives on what 'care' means, instead of the mainstream thinking of the '3Ds': dirty, dangerous, difficult. Participation would be a core aspect of interactions with my respondents, and I look forward to embarking on this self-reflective journey.

capstone project

My Capstone project Looking in from the Outside explores the experiences of international and indigenous students in Canadian society. Through mind-mapping and informal conversation, I gathered common themes in their experiences of marginalization and daily micro-aggressions. The original intention was to focus on the perspectives of international students, but in the course of this project the fee hikes for international students were approved. Considering that the UVic Board of Governors framed this move in a way that pitted indigenous and international students against each other, I felt it was important to also include indigenous voices to show that these two groups of students have more that they can mutually relate to than fight over. The way their contributions are presented reflect the preferences of my respondents. Overall, this project emphasises the theme of relationality and caring for others based on the simple fact that we exist as human beings, differences in habit and perception aside. As I hope to show, the maps drawn by my respondents reflect many concerns that are not as different as we might think.
