Ashiely S James from Bhopal School of Social Sciences, India, has received the Tim Stone Memorial Award for the year 2016. Ashiely is in the final year of her Bachelors in Arts and has an interest in pursuing her Master’s in Social Work.

Working with Institute of Well Being (IWB), Bangladesh, and HealthBridge India, Ashiely will be trained to work on livable cities (LC). This includes learning the strategies and advocacies adopted by IWB to make a city livable. At the end of her term with HealthBridge, Ashley will be able to: design surveys, tell compelling visual stories, do media advocacy and technical writing.

On her return to India, Ashiely will work with Phaeba Abraham, HealthBridge Regional Manager for South Asia, to develop concrete ideas for a partnership with Caring for India Trust (CFI), including specific ideas on expanding LC work in Bhopal, India.

The Tim Stone Memorial Award was established in 2013 with proceeds from the Tim Stone Memorial Fund.

The purpose of the award is to honor the memory and contributions of former HealthBridge Executive Director Tim Stone, by encouraging young people who are exploring a career in international development.
