Collector’s Internship Programme

The District Collector’s Internship Programme (DCIP), a first-of –its-kind initiative in the country, will be launched at the Indian Institute of Management – Kozhikode (IIM-K) at Kunnamangalam here at 9.30 a.m. on Thursday.

True to its motto of facilitating the development of a compassionate and professional civil society, the programme will be inaugurated by two students, Fatima and Fatima Baby, who are leading their lives after a series of struggles. The two Fatimas, one of them an undergraduate at the Homoeopathy College at Kottayam, have been chosen for the inauguration considering their achievements in spite of their physical disabilities.

“They are not only a symbol of women empowerment but also role models for the youth. In fact, the life of one has inspired filmmaker Anjali Menon to portray on celluloid the radio jockey Sarah in the blockbuster Bangalore Days , ” N. Prasanth, District Collector, told The Hindu on Wednesday. The DICP is an unpaid multi-disciplinary internship programme for senior and junior development fellows.
