In June and July of 2012, I interned with the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) in Eastern Uganda. My internship was facilitated by the Kellogg Institute at the University of Notre Dame, where I am currently a senior.
This website provides an academic framework for one of the salient issues I encountered while in Uganda: the marginalization of women; through sharing some of my stories, citing academic sources, and voicing some of my own opinions on the topic, I hope to foster a better understanding on the role of women in Ugandan society. I encourage you learn more about FIMRC and the Kellogg Institute, and their links are provided below.
I would like to thank the Kellogg Institute at Notre Dame for funding my internship and conducting the valuable orientation sessions that helped prepare me for my journey. I would especially like to thank Holly Rivers and Liz Mach for all of their guidance and support.
I think it makes the most sense to proceed through the website in a certain order, but feel free to explore in whatever way you choose. Let's get started!
