Expanding Education in Nepal

by Wouther Zwart '14, International Internship, VillageTech Solutions, Nepal

I spent four wonderful months in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal, with a small NGO called VillageTech Solutions. Their education project is an audio-visual teaching aid, which is aimed to improve both the method of teaching as well as to augment the teaching material available to Nepalese public schools.

During my time in Nepal, I collaborated with Nepalese universities, local start-ups, open source groups and companies to finalize the development of the project and to build a community of students, engineers and entrepreneurs in order to expand education methods in public schools.

Dickey Senior Receives Prestigious Rhodes Scholarship

December 4, 2013

Joseph Singh ’14, of Toronto, Ontario, has been named a 2014 Rhodes Scholar, the oldest and most prestigious postgraduate academic award for international study. The Rhodes Scholarship pays all expenses for a graduate program at the University of Oxfordin England.

Singh has been deeply involved with Dickey Center programs since his first term on campus, when he was selected to participate in the year-long Great Issues Scholars program. Last summer he won a Dickey Center Class of '66 International Internship to work at the Institute for Near East Gulf Military Analysis, in Washington, DC.

"This is great news for Joe and richly deserved," says Daniel Benjamin, Director of the Dickey Center. "We were all impressed when, as one of the Dickey Center's Class of '66 Interns, he co-wrote a piece for the Foreign Policy website on the relationshp between Russia and Syria. He's sharp, insightful and motivated."

Going Global with Emily Unger '11

Dartmouth Now features a story about Emily Unger '11 who completed a whirlwind, worldwide trip to interview students on Dartmouth-sponsored international internships. She tells her story in the Nov/Dec issue of the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine. Her trip was sponsored by the Dickey Center. “We want to capture the unique ‘learning-while-doing’ experiences students have in the field,” explains Dickey Acting Director Christianne Wohlforth. “And we want to turn the telling of those stories into a professional development opportunity in itself.”

Lisbeth Labrada '13, on a Dickey Center International Internship, spent the summer working in a free health clinic in the small country of East Timor in Southeast Asia. She saw hundreds of patients a day for maternity and infant care, tuberculosis and malaria, and even HIV. She learned about the clinic by participating in another Dickey Center program for first year students, the Great Issues Scholars program.
