The Ashinaga Africa Initiative (Anglophone and Lusophone) will welcome around 25 selected scholars from around 25 different countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to our leadership program in Kampala, Uganda, to receive academic training in their studies of interest, as well as assistance applying to universities around the world. Through education, Ashinaga hopes to empower its students to make the change that they wish to see in their communities, countries, and Africa as a whole. These students have all lost one or both parents, and have been specifically chosen due to their academic ability, financial need, and potential for leadership.
Anglophone and Lusophone students attend a Study Camp (July - December), which focuses on academic improvement, as well as university applications.
We are looking for a range of interns to support these students in IELTS and SAT exam preparation, essay writing, mathematics, and subject-specific studies. This internship is an opportunity for open-minded and driven interns to not only develop their teaching and mentoring by designing their own lessons, engaging with innovative pedagogical methods, applying creative problem solving but also a hands on opportunity to learn about the challenges and possibilities in African education and development.
Students then return in May for Preparation Camp (May - June). The Preparation Camp is only attended by Ashinaga's Anglophone students, and intern responsibilities will be more focused on preparing scholars for life at university in another culture and leadership.
Join us to make a big impact on the lives of these students, whilst learning more about yourself and gaining a wealth of international experience!
Note: The students you will work with are mostly soon-to-be university students, aged 18-22.
