    Hello!, I am a lawyer from Chile, based in Brussels and a recent graduate from the KU Leuven Master Degree “Cultural Anthropology and Development Studies”. I am currently working as an external collaborator to the NGO Siempre, that works with Latin American women in Belgium. My focus is on gender, migrations and development.



    I am Archana from India. I work with an NGO called Azim Premji Foundation, which focuses on education and teacher capacity building in rural government schools in some of the most backward districts in India. I have a Master’s degree in Literature, where my thesis looked at the element of movement in migration. A part of my work involves working with children from families who have migrated earlier or those from travelling communities to look at how their migration affects their education, especially in early grades. Although I am mostly involved in making education outside their home-language accessible to them, I also work to document common vocabulary, myths and stories from their culture that can be used in classrooms, even if their own language is not available in the prescribed textbooks or syllabus. I became interested in this course as I have been looking at works of fiction and migrant stories portrayed in them, and wanted a grasp on the policy side of things as well.

    It has been nice to read all of your introductions. I look forward to learning from all of you.

    Warm Regards,
