From what I can remember, now is the time when a lot of folks are figuring out summer internships. So I'd like to take this opportunity to advertise a few unpaid internships here at Twende in Tanzania.
That's how I originally got involved with Twende, and I highly recommend it to any BOW students looking for development work. This summer, we're assembling several teams of Tanzanian and international interns combined to work on open-ended projects that will make lasting contributions to Twende. The work environment here is super collaborative, and we work hard to place everyone in a position that aligns strongly with their skills and interests. Expect to get a lot of independence and a lot of responsibility from day one. Expect to use design thinking and get to know the people you're designing for. Come here with an open mind and a lot of energy, and expect to learn.
