INTERNSHIP IN KENYA

Are you looking for a chance to combine your passion and expertise within social science, psychology, communication or social work, with an internship in Kenya? An internship with our partner in Kenya offers you a chance to work with human rights issues and help persons that have fallen victim for human trafficking.

ABOUT OUR PARTNER IN KENYA

Awareness Against Human Trafficking (HAART) is a non-governmental organization based in Nairobi, Kenya. HAART was founded in 2010 by a passionate group of lawyers, missionaries and humanitarians that are dedicated towards ending modern slavery in Kenya and east Africa. Volunteers constitute the backbone in HAART, they work at grassroot level by facilitating workshops and teaching about the lurking dangers of trafficking and how to avoid getting implicated. 


HAART has 50 volunteers associated as well as 20 employees. They work with a long list of international players within the development sector. The work to prevent trafficking is carried out in three levels; Prevention, Protection and Policy Corporation. The work connected to prevention evolves around understanding human trafficking through research and is the key area where HAART needs support to strengthen their efforts.

PARTNER INFORMATION

WORK ASSIGNMENTS



Data collection:  You will be working with various tasks supporting the organisations knowledgebase. Data collection and analysis is a large part of the assignment and an interest in both qualitative and quantitative data collection is a clear advantage


Reporting: It is crucial HAART can document the effects of human trafficking in order to address the topic both on a community level and politically. Evaluating data and drafting reports about human trafficking in Kenya and East Africa therefore also constitute a large part of the assignments


Project coordination: There is a chance of situations where the interns will assist by coordination of minor projects as well as events


FUN FACTS


Although coffee is one of Kenya’s main exports, most Kenyans actually prefer drinking tea… or bear.


Many people might know Kenya’s colonial history as part of the former British colonies. However, for several centuries, before both British and Portuguese sailors reached the Kenyan shores, the coastal areas of Kenya was highly influenced by Arabic culture. You can therefore find countless links to Arabic traditions, language and food in Kenya.


Kenya is home to one of the best-known national parks in the world. Masai Mara is connected to Serengeti and is home to lions, elephants and wilder beasts.
