'Exceptional, I felt supported and encouraged to grow professionally and walked away achieving the goals I set out to accomplish".

Elizabeth BassettPublic Health Student, USA. Virtual Internship, 3 Months, 2020

"It was so interesting to meet people from all different backgrounds coming together at the African Impact Foundation to achieve collective goals toward project development throughout Africa. I loved learning how projects and partnerships were created and then seeing those collaborations play out in real time while in the field. Our partners in the field are the experts on these projects, and I loved learning from their experience.”

Jessica SchneiderPublic Health & Social Work Student, USA. Cape Town & Zambia Internship, 3 Months, 2020

“Besides from the knowledge and professional experience I gained, just being submerged into African culture was the highlight of my internship."

Sarah ConnerInternational Development Student, England. Cape Town Internship, 5 months, 2019

"I saw the incredible changes African Impact and the Foundation brought to our environment and to the life of the people taking part to the program.”

Zoé ChampelBusiness Student, France. Cape Town Internship, 4 months, 2020

"It is definitely comforting to be surrounded by smart people in a small organization like this, where there is a short route from idea to reality. It is easy to see that I am making a real, tangible impact. The internship is customized to the strengths and interests of the intern, but I was also challenged every day with tasks that I had never done before. I faced great challenges, but I have now gained new skills and experiences because of it."

Niklas Kløve RyelundBusiness Controller, Denmark. Cape Town Internship, 5 months, 2018

"Each day is a learning experience that opens eyes, hearts, and minds. You’ll begin to form your own opinions of Africa based on your first-hand experiences, and you will keep those stories with you for a lifetime."
