Hi Tobias,

Thank you very much for your mail. I am a 30 year old female Zambian citizen resident in Lusaka Zambia looking for any employment opportunities within Zambia.

Professionally, I hold a Bachelor of Laws Degree (LLB) from the University of Zambia and I am passionate about using my expertise to help the vulnerable and marginalized members of the society particularly women and children. Having been orphaned at the age of 8, I faced alot of challenges and benefited greatly from social welfare programs. It is for this reason that I would like to give back and work for a cause/organisation which helps people in need.

Hola Tobias

Thanks for the warm welcome! I have been given a great opportunity to do an internship with Asylum Access (AA) as a programs intern. I am in Queensland Australia and currently completing a Master of International Development, I will be doing 7 weeks in Mexico November/December this year as part of my degree requirements.

I was given Namati details by my supervisor at AA, I will be working on a couple of big projects. The first one is to review and update AA SOP’s for volunteer advocates and paralegals that support the work that AA does as well as refugees that access AA for support. I will also be developing a training plan for the paralegals at a later stage.

Any good suggestions/documents/websites etc of best practice for SOP’s for either volunteer advocates or paralegals that anyone thinks would be useful would be really helpful.

Warm Regards

Faval Copedo
