This semester, in fulfillment of our CWTS curriculum, our group – Bianca, Tina, Mikee, Bea, and Karla – interned at an organization called Nameless. Nameless is a collective that aims to shed light on the heroes and martyrs of the Martial Law era and the atrocities of the period.
Often times, we as individuals are encouraged to do our part in mitigating climate change. We are taught to practice the 3R’s, segregating our waste, avoiding plastics, among other practices. This isn’t what we learned from our internship in PMCJ. Instead, we realized through our tasks and research that it goes beyond individual efforts in … Continue reading No Justice without “us”
Before interning with the Philippine Movement for Climate Justice or PMCJ, I wouldn’t think much of issues like “Climate Change”, “Global Warming”, or even “Climate Justice”. I knew that the Earth and our environment was important. After all, as an Economics student, I know very well our resources and markets depend heavily on what we … Continue reading Just Us (PMCJ)
My internship experience with PMCJ was fun. To be honest, it was actually a bit unconventional because we were allowed to work both inside and outside the office, at our own schedule, at our own pace. They were not strict when it comes to our attire, they permitted us to wear anything as long as we’re … Continue reading My Internship Experience
The internship program of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) was one of the things I actually looked forward to this semester. Considering that I am loaded with Economics classes and loads of workload in organizational work and other academics, having to spend a Monday outside of the campus is a breath of fresh … Continue reading Opening my Eyes to the Real World
I didn't know what to expect of my internship at the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism, but my overall experience was one I will always remember for all the best reasons. Getting to work alongside your close friends will always make any job better, but it's fortunate that the work given us was one I … Continue reading The Not So Glamorous World of Investigative Journalism
We were under Project and Donor Management, and that team's task is basically internal. It is divided into more categories, then -- HR, Procurement, Asset Management, Procurement, Legals, Finance, Marketing, and Accounting. I volunteered to work on Asset Management because the thought of valuing and counting the inventory or flow of in-kind donations seemed fun. … Continue reading Lingkod Kapamilya Journey
The first day was a bit nerve-racking, but knowing what the ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. does and how it impacts the Filipino people is what made me more excited than nervous. The Project and Donor Management Head, Ma'am Josine Reyes discussed what PDM is and gave us a brief summary of the jobs of each … Continue reading ALKForever Kapamilya
About last week of January, UP School of Economics asked the students to group into five (5) and choose what NGO (Non-governmental organization) or Government units they want to have their internship at NSTP. Our team – which is Team 11 (consist of Daphne Del Mundo, Angeli Garcia, Shaira Pascual, Janis Sumait and Dana Salgado) … Continue reading More than a Kapamilya.
