Interns focusing on Women’s Education in Tanzania assist at foundation for women, which offers refuge for women and a safe place to receive support toward achieving their goals.
A semi-structured program is in place to help girls and women to create their own short and long term goals, toward their plans for the future. These goals may include ambitions to finish high school, enhance employability skills, and gain a job to generate income for themselves.
Interns contribute through assisting with reading, writing and computer classes, homework tuition, general vocational skills, and also support the general operation of the foundation. This may involve community outreach, life counselling work, and working alongside the project director to provide one-on-one mentorship for women who are working to overcome various challenges. Additionally, interns may lend their support to a Leadership Academy for Girls, which provides focused mentorship for teenage girls within the community.
It is important to be aware that the pace of life in Arusha can at times be slower and less streamlined. Interns must be adaptable, proactive, and willing to help where needed (as is appropriate, given the situation).
|“Going abroad for an internship was one of the best things I could have done for my personal growth. It opened me up to an environment that is completely new and full of opportunity. My supervisors were all helpful with answering questions and being a friendly face to see every day. She checked in on me quite frequently to see how I was doing in my placement and overall. There is a lot of public transportation that will help you get anywhere you want. Everyone in the city who I interacted it were very friendly. I lived not too far from my work and the center of the city. The interns all got very close as well, which made Arusha feel like home. The experience was something I will treasure for a lifetime, and hopefully will get to do again sometime in the future. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone interested.” - Cora Allard, USA.|
