Hi, my name is Jess MacIver and I am a 5th-year Anthropology & Archaeology student at UVic! For my CAPI internship I am working with Ukulapha organization in Slangspruit, South Africa; this organization engages with the township school, working in the classroom and running camps during school breaks!

We are currently in the middle of pre-departure week preparations, and prepping for the kinds of blogs/podcasts we will be doing during our internships. For this first podcast, I will be interviewing my fellow CAPI intern Taylor, who is heading to Zambia to work with The Sam Project, an organization focused on furthering clean water access. I will let Taylor explain the rest!

If you would like to check out the interview I did with Taylor about my placement, you can head to his blog page and it will be up there! Thanks for joining in on this journey!
