INTERNSHIPS AVAILABLE AT MULTI-PURPOSE COMMUNITY CENTER
The Baobuyu Learning Center is based in a village called Mwandi in Livingstone, Zambia, and was started to address the area’s lack of free, accessible education. Zambia is one of the most underdeveloped countries in the world, with most of the population living in poverty. Now, the Baobuyu Learning Center has grown into an important hub with various educational programs for the local community.
During the morning the center is a preschool for kids from ages 2 to 6. While the preschool originally only had 9 kids, they have now expanded to a group of 41 kids. In the afternoon, the center runs a variety of workshops including, skill development, support groups for girls, recycling club, a woman’s group, health workshops, and a chess club.
With the multipurpose nature of this organization, there are several focuses you can choose as an intern, including marketing, writing, education, and sustainability. Any of these causes will greatly benefit from your input!
