Internships and volunteer work in Africa

As an intern or volunteer you can complete research projects, design programs, write advisory reports, create workshops, manuals, teaching & learning materials, implement all kind of activities and assist local staff members in the field. We give interns and volunteers the opportunity to make a change by offering challenging need based projects in a safe environment, because local organisations do not have the resources to do this.

Let’s Go Africa’s unique working method:

  • We have a personal bond with all our partner organisations in Africa and closely cooperate with them to indicate their NEEDS
  • NEED-based projects are translated into project vacancies per category & country
  • Project vacancy matches personal, study & supervision criteria into project description
  • Project description is a guideline with tasks aimed at mutual skills & experience sharing
  • Always trying to transmit end product & promoting local ownership of project!

Challenge yourself by temporarily leaving your comfort zone

Make a difference by giving practical, academic and/or financial support
