Time Period: Estimate 10 hours per week for 12 weeks
Seva is a global nonprofit eye care organization that transforms lives and strengthens communities by restoring sight and preventing blindness. We train local eye care providers and develop self-sustaining eye programs around the world. Together we provide critical eye care to underserved communities, especially women, children, and indigenous peoples. Seva has helped 5 million blind people regain their sight in more than 20 countries.
Seva works with more than 100 eye clinics around the world as part of the Global Sight Initiative (GSI). This network partners with hospitals to improve their eye care delivery and provision of quality care. Hospitals in the GSI network see 3 million people annually. Seva seeks a person with data analysis and public health understanding to make a difference in how to more effectively provide eye care in these hospitals. The successful candidate will help manage the data being reported from our partner hospitals, analyze data reported, and identify data trends and provide insight on implications.
There are three main components to the project:
1. Develop a new Power BI dashboard for Seva-supported vision centers.
2. Develop a new Power BI dashboard for Seva-supported pediatric eye care programs.
3. Analyze data and answer key learning questions, contributing to the construction of data models and visualizations of metrics, using Microsoft Power BI. This internship allows someone to fuel their curiosity about how data can be used to inform hospital management decisions. The intern will have the opportunity to learn about or build upon their knowledge of data analysis and
business intelligence. The final analysis and project recommendations will be presented to
Seva’s senior staff. The intern will also have the chance to regularly participate in staff meetings and to learn more about the day-to-day operations of Seva. By the end of the internship, the intern will have at least one stand-alone project that can be included in their professional portfolio.
SCOPE OF WORK:

Dashboard metrics could include: children receiving eye exams, glasses, and surgeries at the hospital level; children receiving eye screenings and glasses at outreach events; children referred to the hospital from an outreach event.
Objective 3: Analyze data and answer key learning questions, contributing to the construction of data models and visualizations of metrics, using Microsoft Power BI
Bring your analytical interests into Objective 3 by exploring Seva’s partner data. Using statistical software, analyze thousands of rows of data to find interesting trends. Throughout the course of the internship, explore and answer at least one key programmatic question that helps to demonstrate impact and inform program decisions. The internship will culminate with a presentation to Seva’s senior staff on data trends and implications on Seva’s programming and partners.
