While doing one month’s internship at FHTS, I learnt many things. It was my first virtual internship. It helped me to develop new perspectives in the changing scenario of this pandemic. I met new people from different organizations and institutions for the group assignments during this and we shared different information and shared our ideas for the common goals. The presentation used to happen in front of the virtual audience so this internship prepared me to get adapted for this new normal.
The ‘SMAART’ tracker approach is an innovative portal to keep all the important information at one place. It helps to understand the global scenario as well as the Indian states too. The policies and advisories taken by the Govts can be found here.
I will be thankful to FHTS for this.
