Internship by Ms. Nora Pernesch, M.Sc (Human Security), Aarhus University, Denmark
My time here at MOHAN Foundation really was an invaluable experience in many aspects. As part of my master studies in Human Security I came here as a research intern on the topic of public trust in organ donation. What seemed to be a just a study internship turned out to be so much more. The people here at the foundation are really supportive and open-minded. In the beginning of course the Indian way of working and doing things can be quite challenging but with time I learned to go with the flow and would even say that my way of approaching things might have changed a little. Coming to India one simply has to be open to let go of his or her customs of organizing things and embrace flexibility. It will definitely pay out and I enjoyed the independence that I was given in pursuing my study.Read More
Organ donation in India - Impressions from Mieke van Kollenburg, Holland
I am a Dutch student in Health information. On the 18th of May, I stepped into a plane full of Indians, leaving for Hyderabad to work in MOHAN Foundation for a period of four months. This internship would constitute the last part of my study. Now, almost at the end of my stay here, I have the feeling that I know the organ donation world in India almost from top to toe.
In the past months, I have been participating in all of MOHAN Foundationís activities, like giving presentations, distributing information brochures, creating awareness in street campaigns, etcetera. At the same time, I interviewed all kinds of people that are involved in organ donation, like transplant coordinators and patients that received an organ themselves. Furthermore I did a small survey on the awareness on organ donation among the public.Read More
Internship by Ms. Karen De Looze from Brussels University, Belgium
I first met Dr. Shroff of MOHAN Foundation in April 2009. I found my way to the office after having explored the entire MOHAN Foundation website that left a big impression on me. I was received with the best of hospitality, and together we looked at ways to cooperate.
Since I am a PhD researcher working for Brussels University working on the topic of brain death and cadaveric organ transfer in India, linking up with MOHAN Foundation just seemed like the right thing to do. Not just did it seem so, it was! The atmosphere at MOHAN Foundation is very gentle and light, notwithstanding the fact that the employees are performing one of the most difficult jobs with great enthusiasm investing all manpower with grace.Read More
Internship by Ms. Susmitha, Masters in Public Health, SRM University, Chennai
My summer internship with MOHAN Foundation has been an invaluable experience. I have been challenged and pushed during my time here, which has made me a better public health professional. I feel that my work here has been extremely meaningful and my inputs are valued. I am grateful to work with such seasoned professionals in the fields of public health and development, and because of them, my time here has truly been inspiring. I would absolutely recommend working with MOHAN Foundation and would be thrilled to come back and work with this amazing organization again. My only regret is that I couldnít stay longer.
Internship by Ms. Shweta Gupta, Masters of Design, Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati
I had been in MOHAN Foundation for very short period of time. To work with the foundation was a very valuable experience for me. I worked on creating an awareness video on a sensitive issue - organ donation. This work was related to my master thesis project in IIT Guwahati and I am glad to spread this awareness through MOHAN Foundation. I feel very grateful to work for this noble cause with an energetic team. Thank you!

Internship by Ms. Sridivya, Srimad Andavan Arts & Science College, Trichy
As a Social work trainee, I learnt more details about Organ Donation. Same time enjoyed well to work with this team. It gave a new experience to me. I worked here independently. No one forced me to work. But all gave guidance to work with calmness.
Very first day of my internship, I didnít know what to do. I was totally confused and came here only for getting my marks. But from second day, I started loving the work and felt comfortable to work. I now know more details about Brain death and Organ Donation. Read More
