The prospects that a law student would have in a non governmental organisation, working on promotion of organ transplantation and donation, was ambiguous to me and my family when I joined as a legal intern at MOHAN Foundation. However, I was made to understand that it is a great opportunity ever since I understood how much legal issues must be looked into and resolved in this area of law. Unlike other areas of law that have been under constant scrutiny, the laws dealing with organ transplantation and donations had a lot of scope for development, only giving me more prospects to contribute greatly.

My experience interning at MOHAN Foundation (Mumbai) was very positive and informative. My internship was from 17th of December 2018 to 14th of January 2019.

Internship by Mr. Arun Jose, Madras Medical Mission College of Health Sciences, Chennai.
The two months internship program at MOHAN Foundation was a great experience which helped to gain a good exposure in the field of Organ Donation.

Okay! I just can’t believe that I am in the last day of my internship at MOHAN Foundation. Before I get into the experience and things I learnt from this organization I would like to recollect a small memory which flashes through my mind. I still remember the first day when I stepped into this organization with complete nervousness and hesitation, this being my first work atmosphere. I found that everything was very systematic and well planned. I remember the first day I met Dr. Hemal, she greeted me with a warm welcome and straight asked for my mail ID. Read More

There is no doubt that MOHAN Foundation is one of the best NGOs in India which works for Organ donation awareness.

Internship by Ms. Anjali Aryamvally, B.Tech, Genetic Engineering, SRM University, Chennai
When I decided to intern with MOHAN Foundation, my support for the cause of organ donation was the only reason. My internship at MF has allowed me to meet people from all walks of life with a strong commitment towards the work that they do. The three months that I spent here was not just knowledgeable but I was also able to witness the extensive amount of work that goes behind making organ donation more acceptable among the public. Today, I not only support the cause but understand the importance of organ donation in today's day and time.
I would like to thank the entire team at MOHAN Foundation for all their help, warmth and support. I came as a stranger but I leave as a member of the MOHAN Foundation family.

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
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 Foundation’s 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. 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
