Upcoming Internship.

Patrick Bartholomew Kekulah Benedict Sovie


During his final quarter of his course at  Northeastern University School Of Law in the United States, Patrick Bartholomew Kekulah Benedict Sovie will participate in a 3 months Co-op with the B-Gifted Foundation, a Human Right Organization in Sierra Leone and Liberia. During his co-op at B-Gifted Foundation, Patrick hopes to gain the invaluable experience with the organization’s Human Rights staff and expand his legal research and writing skills within the field of Law and public policy, human rights law, disability rights; understanding how the law can help disabled persons and more specifically amputee victims of Sierra Leone’s war.

Patrick believes that he will also consider using his experience to help develop programs that will also inform and teach human rights to students. This will be one of the most rewarding aspects of his  Co-op, facilitating his own continued thirst for knowledge and learning to help solve many problems via legal means.

Patrick says he 'anticipate that working with B-Gifted will be a catalyst for my professional and intellectual development in public policy and human rights and the same way that my experience will serve in the mission of B-Gifted in address human rights, enhance peace and development.'   His personal interest in these areas is not only because of his  experiences but also because he is also interested in pursuing work in the field of sustainable development in the context of human rights and Public Policy.

 

 

Lorraine Bowan (Intern)

"Thank you for encouraging me to take the opportunity to come to Sierra Leone as an intern with your fledgling organisation. The experience was invaluable for my growing understanding of development issues particularly in relation to education and child protection. 
Working at the Prince of Wales School I was able to observe superficially, the sense of mission of the school, the nature of the students, the working conditions of the staff, the access to various technologies of learning, the state of the physical environment, and the attitude of the school community. I was greatly impressed by the drama and dance drama I saw which I believe to be a particular strength of the students, developed by their expert and committed teachers.
On the surface, many observable features of school life were familiar: schools everywhere have the same broad goals and students everywhere make their negotiations between the richness of the social world of peers and the opportunities of the academic world of the education system.  As an English teacher, I appreciated the difficulties in bringing students to a functional level in what is essentially a foreign language despite the links with Krio, and became aware of the gulf between English education in the Sierra Leone context of material and technological deprivation and its counterpart in the western context of relative material and technological wealth."
