We want to build a bridge between interns and organizations, that are in need of helpful hands.
We are a network of professionals that know the feeling of wanting to contribute with something meaningful and making a difference for others. We also know that it can be difficult to find the right place to put your strengths to right use, which is why we are ready to help you, so that you can be a resource that makes a significant difference.
There are many ways in which an organization can help make the world a more sustainable and positive place. We strive to connect people across cultures, experiences and skills; people who have a common desire to make a difference for others, even for people they don’t yet know.

Our current goal is to make it easier for interns to get out in the world. We wish to prevent that financial limitations and lack of network or knowledge, are stopping you getting out there and apply your skills.
In the future we hope to have the finances to support our partner organizations in realizing projects that at this point are unobtainable.
We primarily offers internship work that is perceived as traditional international development. Although we do acknowledge the need of knowledge-sharing within everything from agriculture to software development. We very much hope that the future Global Connection will become a generator of sharing knowledge and collaboration in all trades of life.
Easier for interns
Our main focus is on making it more accessible for interns and volunteers to get out in the world and make a difference. We cooperate exclusively with partner organizations, that support sustainable community projects in development countries.
Your work is the donation. We wish to create full transparency in budgeting and cost.
You are our starting point
By using our expertise, experiences and network, we can open doors to specific developing projects and show you the way to skilled and trustworthy organizations, that otherwise may be difficult to get in touch with.
We want to aim wider across the line of projects and organizations that already have attention and support from Danish partners. We open doors to projects that normally aren’t found on random internet sites, but that we know to be sustainable.
To make the world a better place by supporting local passionate people in building and developing sustainable projects.
Our work is based on strong partnerships. We’re not re-inventing new challenges or projects, but rather with focus on our partners’ specific situation and support them in continually identifying their own needs.
OUR WORK METHOD
We are very conscious about the nature of collaboration with our local partners in each internships we initiate. Therefor, we always make sure to continuously follow up on local partners and interns prior, during and after the internship.
We always focus specifically on the individual (intern/partner), which is why all of our internships are tailor-made. By doing so we strive to optimize every individual’s potential in the best way possible.
In a good internship, there is a balance between what the intern can offer and hopes to learn, as well as what our partners need and can offer in return. We only support internships where these elements are in balance.
