Each intern accomplishes a project based on HEART’s current needs and the skills and interests of the intern. In the past, interns have worked with the WEEP (Women’s Equality Empowerment Project) women on developing long-term business plans, made a presentation to be used for HEART fundraising for the Freedom for Girls Project, designed and authored newsletters for HEART’s three main projects (Women’s Equality Empowerment Project, Orphans and Vulnerable Children, and Freedom for Girls), and organized a large youth event.
Interns have interests ranging from intercultural studies to business and marketing. Whether your passion is medicine or photography, there is a place in the HEART internship program for you.
In addition to an individual project, interns have the privilege of taking part in many of HEART’s projects working alongside HEART project staff. Sometimes this includes travel to upcountry locations in Kenya, various slums, safari and local events and presentations. Interns often help with health education seminars in schools both upcountry and in slums, as well as help with basic office organization around the HEART Lodge in Nairobi.
HEART longs to see interns grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, through experiences and in character during his or her time in Kenya, so we provide various opportunities for growth in all areas. We keep our interns busy with work (and fun!), so join us and expect a memorable stay in Kenya!
