Khulumani warmly welcomes Mr Vahid Dejwakh for a ten-week long internship with the organisation

Vahid Dejwakh joined Khulumani on Friday May 17 as an intern for a ten-week placement. Welcome to Vahid. We are so pleased that you have come to spend some time with us. 

Vahid was born in Niger and grew up there until the age of 13 years when his family moved to the United States. In his undergraduate years, Vahid served as President of the African Student Association (AFSA) at Arizona State University. Vahid is writing a blog for his law school, the William and Mary Law School at Williamsburg, Virginia in the United States.

The blog can be followed at:

One of the projects to which Vahid is currently contributing is the construction of a submission to the Chamber of Mines on ways to address unresolved issues related to the lack of mining company investment in mineworker-sending areas where poverty and a lack of access to educational opportunities severely limits life opportunities for men as migrant workers.
