"Although migration has greatly benefitted millions around the world, a large number of migrants continue to face a myriad of threats. They are denied basic human rights such as rights to education and health, face exploitation, and are marginalised. Recent events in Europe and Burma highlight these important issues, also encouraging me to pursue an internship related to migration. As such, a placement with CMIR offered the perfect opportunity to work in the field of migration. As an intern here, I hope to gain a better understanding of the challenges facing migrants both in Nepal and abroad. Working here will provide me with a unique experience where I hope to use the skills and knowledge I gain to bring greater attention to the difficulties facing migrants and contribute to improving their situation."
