From the GSIPM blog: For this month’s DPMI spotlight, we spoke with January 2018 DPMI Rwanda participant Tyler Henry. Tyler is a returned Peace Corps volunteer who served in both the Ukraine and in Cameroon. Currently, he is completing his final semester in the MPA program specializing in monitoring and evaluation. He spoke to us about why he chose DPMI Rwanda vs DPMI in the US, challenges he faced during his time in Rwanda, takeaways from the experience, and provided advice for anyone interested in participating in DPMI in the future.
“The connections you make in the field are incredible” says Middlebury Institute student Charlotte Grant, who is fulfilling her degree program’s practicum requirement working with Save the Children in Laos.
