What are the similarities between an AIESEC experience and The Jeux des Iles de l’Ocean Indien held in Seychelles?
To start with, for those who are not aware what is Jeux des Iles de l’Ocean Indien!!
Jeux des Iles de l’Ocean Indien is a multi- sport completion where athletes meet various islands of the southwest Indian Ocean. They are held every four years.They gather seven delegations: Mauritius, Seychelles, Comoros, Madagascar, Mayotte, Reunion Island and the Maldives.
This year, the JIOI was held in Seychelles.
“The Games were a success and we are very happy. Everything went well and we are very satisfied. Members of the Organising Committee and volunteers have done an outstanding job and I bow low”, said Eric Arnehie, General Commissioner of the Games.
Some small problems were encountered with the arrival of the delegations, but all went well afterwards.
Similarly, AIESEC Chandigarh has the capacity of hosting an international event. It comes in the form of internship where people all over the world come.Connecting the Jeux Des Iles de l’Ocean Indien and Chandigarh is weird. However, below the line there are so many connections. Both are meant to promote talent. JIOI promotes the sport talent and AIESEC promotes leadership talent. At the end of the day, both are building up something in the individual. What are the things? They are:
· Team building
· Team spirit
· Sharing of culture.
AIESEC interns add character and dynamism to the work environment. JIOI also add dynamism to an athlete and build the winning character.
Benefits of both JIOI and AIESEC Chandigarh:
· International Experience
· Societal Impact
· Vast Global network
· Personal development
Everyone cannot become a sportsman/ woman in an instant. Hard training is needed. However, AIESEC Chandigarh gives youngsters the opportunity to be involved in a youth gathering. By gathering I mean, being with different people from different world. Moreover, they get the opportunity to acquire experience in different fields (where they have the choice to select). The different internships are:
· Management internship - project management, advertising, marketing
· Development internship- deals with social projects with NGOs
· Technical internship- web development, projects on language like Java, working on databases.
· Educational internship- deals with projects on education (teaching the illiterates, teaching languages and sports)
