Camfed Internships for people seeking international development experience/work

November 19, 2008

Regularly people ask me how I got into international development work…my answer is: “I started as a volunteer.”  Here is an opportunity to get in the field, international development experience via a CAMFED Internships.

Help girls in rural areas of Africa attend and succeed at primary and secondary school, and progress into young adulthood with opportunities that include professional training, higher education and job creation.

Camfed is offering internships to students or post-graduates who are planning a career in development. 

Camfed is an international organization dedicated to eradicating poverty in Africa through the education of girls and the empowerment of young women.

Interns will provide support to Camfed staff across a range of disciplines – from fundraising to development education and from monitoring and evaluation to programme activities. This breadth of exposure will allow interns to gain wide-ranging experience in the development sector.
Previous interns have been offered permanent positions within Camfed and have gone on to gain employment in other charities as a result of their experience.
