IPHD is proud to congratulate Oliva Arnold, one of our past Girls’ Education Program interns, for being one of three students to receive the 2018 Harold D. Hodgkinson Achievement Award from Northeastern University.
During her time as an intern for IPHD, Arnold ran the Girls’ Education Program, which included training the government teachers in phonetics, engaging in fieldwork with our education advocates, and organizing bags, uniforms, and other school supplies. She was also a strong supporter of the campaign to provide Classes 1-5 at the Government Primary Girls’ School with desks and chairs.
In addition to her work with the Girls’ Education Program, Arnold marketed Saheli Women to a number of companies and helped IPHD create links with different universities in the U.S.
After her graduation this spring, Arnold plans to continue in the field of education by working with Teach for America. We look forward to seeing all the amazing work she will accomplish!
