MSW (Final Year)
Mahapurush Srimanta Sankaradeva Viswavidyalaya, Guwahati
I had new and great experience while doing the internship with Sanjeevani... Life Beyond Cancer. It gave me the chance to learn about cancer, its causes and effects. With this NGO I gained new knowledge about the disease and how it affects the lives of many. By taking part in health camps organised by Sanjeevani, I learned about screening, body mass index and about hepatitis C Virus. The concept of mobilisation opened my eyes and helped me make others aware of the cause and preventions of cancer. Various health camps and awareness camps were conducted which I found very interesting and was happy being part of the camps as I got a chance to interact with many people. The internship also gave me exposure while working among various communities residing in various parts of Guwahati. It helped me in building a rapport and helped develop my communication skills. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful organisation and guide Miss Sumki Begum who is so dear to me as she helped me in every possible way through the internship.
