From the northern part of Sweden (SkellefteÃ¥), Jimmy Singh is an intern at Sonke. Jimmy is studying Social Work at UmeÃ¥ University in Sweden. This is his fifth semester out of seven. Before joining Sonke, Jimmy also worked in the elderly care and with disabled persons in Sweden.
In his previous semester, Jimmy went to India to do a minor field based study focusing on changing alcoholism culture in the Indian society. He is interested in social work particularly at an international level and that motivated him to join Sonke and work in gender equality and human rights issues.
At Sonke, Jimmy is helping with the MenEngage regional policy scan and supporting the work of the Refugee Health and Rights and other projects of the entire organisation.
