MDP summer 2017 field experiences in 7 countries

Crossposted from News from ICGC - Summer 2017:

"As part of the two-year MDP academic experience, all MDP students complete an international field experience, or practicum, in the summer following their first year of coursework. This summer, some of our students embarked on journeys through seven different countries: Belize, Costa Rica, Egypt, Guatemala, Haiti, Nepal, and Tanzania!

Field experiences provide student teams with practical, first-hand experience with sustainable development work, whether through field placements in ongoing projects, research, project development and evaluation, or strategic planning.

Field locations are typically in the global South but may also be in other regions or locations where development challenges align with program focus areas.

An example of a field experience is the Haitian Sign Language Project"
