Jennifer - France (Guadeloupe)
I’m Jennifer CUSTOS and I ‘m currently living in France for my studies. I come from Guadeloupe, a Caribbean French island. I’m a first year student at INSEEC Business school where I ‘m studying International Marketing and management but for my international academic training, I decided to do a three-months traineeship at SIDART NGO in Jaipur, Rajasthan, in India.
First of all, India is for me an opportunity to discover a country very far from mine with a very different culture and I chose SIDART because this is one of the non-profit organization that offers the largest possibilities for trainee. Indeed, I could work on several global projects, especially Women empowerment and HIV issues and propose mine to improve the NGO’s achievement.
Since my first day, I started an experiential training about Corporate Social Responsibility and United Global Compact Impact (GNGC) which is the largest voluntary CRS initiatives in the world which covering social issues. Then I started to work on a new proposal project.
What I like in SIDART is the possibilities to acquire professional skills, to discover rural area and urban slums and working in the office with the others volunteers team members by wearing typical Indian clothes.
I’m convinced that my traineeship at SIDART will be a very rewarding experience for my future job.
