Om Sida Alumni
Students with knowledge and experience of international development issues and Swedish aid. During the last two years, Sida (Swedish International Development cooperation Agency) has recruited Swedish students who recently returned from Minor Fiels Studies (MFS) in developing countries. Sida has trained these students in communication/pedagogy, “Sida knowledge”, and in issues concerning aid and global development in general. Once the students are trained, they visit classrooms, lecture halls, and conference rooms, and speak about their personal experiences from their field trips. The connection between their specific personal experiences and development issues in general, are made clear through discussion and value-based exercises.

Josefhin Jartsjö, MFS-student, berättar om sin Minor Fields studie i Zanzibar.

Presentation of Minor Field Study in Zanzibar and girls’ education. This presentation will focus on why some girls drop out of secondary school in Zanzibar. Last year, former geography teacher in training Josefhin Jartsjö went to Zanzibar to conduct a minor field study about eight girls’ reasons to drop out of secondary school, which later resulted in the final thesis for the teacher degree. The lecture will highlight the importance of educating girls for sustainable development, global research on why children drop out of school, experiences of doing a study in a different country and of course, the girls’ individual stories of why they left school early.
