Program overview

A typical day on this internship will include working with local community schools with early years students, supporting in the class room, designing extra-curricular activities, or conducting vocational training workshops covering topics like healthcare, gender equality, or professional skills development. From Monday to Friday you will work on the internship projects and weekends are yours to explore the surrounding area or simply relax at base with your fellow interns.
