This year, as part of Asha’s internship programme, nine brilliant students from Asha slum communities got the opportunity to intern at the Australian High Commission. During their six-week internship, they learned new skills, added value to their resumes and exchanged ideas and a lot about each other’s culture.
During their internship, the Deputy High Commissioner of the Australian High Commission, Rod Hilton, extended an invitation for lunch to the children. On September 6, the lunch was organised and attended by five of the nine Asha interns. Two Asha staff members and Cate Cusack, an Ex-Assistant to the High- Commission, were also present.
They discussed their experiences and learnings from their internships. Since Asha’s internship programme has flourished, many Asha students got the opportunity to intern with multinational companies and embassies.
The Australian High Commission has always been providing internship opportunities to Asha students and supporting in their skill development.
We are grateful for this partnership and look forward to strengthening it.
