I am Isaac Ataaba, a final year Development Planning student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
As part of the mandates of the school, a student is required to do an internship in an establishment at least once before graduation. This enable the student to get an insight of how some behaviours related to his or her studying programme works practically. This exposure supplements the theoretical aspects that is learnt on campus and it enables the student to appreciate the programme more in a holistic pedagogy.
I started my internship on the 11th day of June, 2018 at the Centre for Integrated Rural and Child Development (CIRCDev) and ended it on the 14th day of August, 2018 at Organization’s premise, Nkawie.
At the end of the period, I realized I have learned things that fulcrums both innovation and technology that otherwise would not have been taught on campus.
As an organization whose prime aim is to foster grassroot area development, its hardworking team, perseverance, time management and above all efficient use of resources are some of the core values it has never compromised and this is catapulting the growth of the organization.
It was an experience working with CIRCDev as I have been exposed to some tools, software and other development practices that provide developmental interventions.
