Intern in Africa

Intern in Africa with Projects Abroad and join a project that helps implement long-term, sustainable development in local communities. The experience will give you greater awareness of global issues, and a deeper insight into the challenges people face everyday. You’ll also gain practical work experience, and learn from cultural exchange with your local colleagues.  

We work in several countries across Africa, and there is a lot you can do. You can learn directly from doctors at a busy hospital and participate in medical outreaches through our Medicine internships. You can empower people by promoting human rights, or give them the financial support and training they need to run a small business.

We take care of all the details on our Africa internships. This ensures that you have a hassle-free experience. Our local staff are available to help you 24/7 in each country we work in. This means you can focus all your energy on helping local communities and gaining professional experience.

Where our internships in Africa are based

A local woman receives medical treatment from a Projects Abroad intern in Africa.Africa is an incredibly diverse continent, with awe-inspiring natural wonders and a rich cultural heritage. We offer internships in several countries. Wherever you go, you’re bound to experience plenty of professional and personal growth through your internship. You can also do any of our projects as part of a summer internship in Africa.

Learn about medicine by shadowing doctors in Tanzania or Kenya, and go beyond what most textbooks can teach you. Or, travel to Ghana or Madagascar and do medical outreaches in rural, disadvantaged communities. You can empower people at free legal clinics in South Africa, or help former talibés (street children) build and run small businesses in Senegal.   

Our programs in Africa are in place because we’ve identified specific needs in local communities. And we’re working hand-in-hand with these communities to achieve sustainable, long-term goals. Join us as an intern in Africa today, and become part of our ongoing efforts to aid development.
