nonprofit internships

We support good causes

Our internships in Africa support good causes. We provide internships at non-profit organizations, social enterprises, and start-up businesses with ethical and sustainable practices. Not only will you have a valuable learning experience, you will also contribute to a worthwhile cause or venture. The organizations have a variety of focus areas, both on a conservation and a humanitarian level, and the impact we can collectively make is inspiring.

Africa

we work on a grassroots level

When you join us for an internship in Africa, you’ll be part of a small organization that will allow you to be an integral part of its work. Though your tasks will be based on your skills and experience, we make sure that all placements offer exciting, in-depth work experiences that will broaden your knowledge, develop your skills, and enhance your CV. (No days filled with making photocopies, is what we’re saying.)

Charity

we take pride in match-making

We know how important it is to place the right person with the right organization. We make sure to take our time to find the right internship for you; one where you’ll find the right balance for you of learning and contributing. One where you can use and develop your skill-set in the most valuable way. One where you’ll find the right amount of challenge, and where you’ll have the most enjoyable time.

we offer personal development coaching

To make sure you get as much as possible out of your experience, both on a personal and professional level, we offer personal sessions with a development professional. During monthly sessions, a professional coach will help you set goals, reflect on your experience, and ensure your internship will benefit your career as much as possible. It’s a great way to squeeze an optimal amount of benefit out of your internship.

Support

We’ll help you every step of the way

Throughout your internship journey, we’ll be here to support you. We’ll take our time to find your perfect NGO internship in Africa and to help you prepare for your trip. When you get here, we’ll meet you at the airport and help you settle into your African adventure. We want you to have a valuable, exciting, and fun experience, and are committed to helping you accomplish this.

internships in Africa

We support local skills development in South Africa

While we love bringing international talent to Africa, we also feel it’s essential to nurture local talent. That’s why we offer a number of free internship placements each year to talented individuals from underprivileged communities in South Africa. It’s a way of offering skill development opportunities to those who need it most.
