Internship Placement: African Team Ministries. I will be helping them gain funds for orphans and refugee families in Kenya and East Africa.

What’s happening? We’d love to hear how your internship is going?

This summer I am interning for a non-profit called African Team Ministries, helping fundraise for orphans and refugee families in East Africa. I am working on a research project for upcoming fall outreach events and conferences where we would sell handmade crafts made by women from the refugee camps. I am learning how non-profits operate and how African Team maintains excellent relations with their sponsors and partners.

How I heard about my internship:

I actually asked my mom if she knew of any non-profits that might need an extra hand this summer and she mentioned African Team Ministries to me, so I sent them an email! If you’re interested in interning for a company, never be afraid to shoot them an email or call, it might just work out for you.

Why I applied for my internship:

I applied for my internship because I eventually want to start a non-profit and I thought this would be a great opportunity to learn how it works. This internship position is helping me to add and fine-tune my professional skills. I am having fun so far and I’m excited to eventually see to fruits of my work.
