BE PART OF OUR FIRST WINTER INTERNSHIP IN GHANA!

Kaeme sends volunteers to Ghana every summer for 10 weeks to help the Ghanaian Department of Social Welfare profile children in orphanages across the country. This next winter, we will be sending volunteers to Ghana to continue assisting the Department of Social Welfare with their profiling efforts. Apply now to be a volunteer for our 2014 Winter internship!

Application deadline for Winter 2014 internship: January 19th, 2014



 

Summer Internship in Ghana

Description: For 9-10 weeks summer interns will work in orphanages collecting information about the children, such as records about their family, education, and medical history, to ensure the Department of Social Welfare in Ghana can correctly place children out of orphanages.

We are looking for people with great enthusiasm, creativity, and a consistent work ethic. Multimedia experience is desired and recommended, but not a requirement. Interns will be fully trained for the experience. Each trip to Ghana is self-funded. Because Kaeme is a nonprofit working in a third-world country, we feel the money would be put to better use going directly to the people of Ghana. If accepted, you will work closely with Ghanaian social workers, Ghanaian university students, and other US college students. All volunteers must commit to spring training and may be asked to commit to post-volunteer requirements.

Term: This position requires a 10-week summer term and Spring Quarter training.

Requirements: Enthusiasm, creativity, and consistent work ethic. Multimedia experience recommended.

Logistics: We place volunteers into teams of 3-5 students, headed by a team leader. Once selected, all volunteers receive careful training to position them for success during their time abroad. We will help you arrange your travel and complete pre-trip preparations.

Kaeme volunteer positions are unpaid. While your trip will be self-funded, we can provide you with guidance in fundraising or seeking sponsorships. Costs will vary according to your specific trip, but major costs will include airfare ($1000-$2500), entry visa ($50), in-country housing and transport ($1000-$2000, coordinated by Kaeme), and food (roughly $15/day). You will also want to budget for miscellaneous personal expenses and pre-travel immunizations (if needed).
