Imagine being able to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, while making a significant contribution to the development sector. if i could… offers you the chance to participate in an international internship in either Cape Town or New Delhi. We connect you to one of our high profile host organisations where you can focus on building your skills in public health, social work, psychology, and more.
One of our recent interns, Sophia, took part in a psychology internship at a children’s home in Cape Town. She chose the Mother City as her destination because she knew it to be vibrant and diverse. Sophia is a graduate of Central Connecticut State University and says that after her internship she has a clearer idea of her future career plans. “I would like to be a childcare specialist or an occupational therapist,” says Sophia, “I want to study towards a Masters degree.”
Her adventures included a trip to the Garden Route with fellow if i could… interns. She loved the atmosphere of Cape Town’s nightlife and enjoyed the fact that there were so many different things to do. Of all her favourite things about Cape Town she said that she will miss the children she worked with the most. “Making a difference in a child’s life, and managing to help a child figure out something in the first two months was incredible,” says Sophia. “Seeing that progress made me feel like I made a difference,” she explains.
“I feel that this experience was the best thing that ever happened to me,” says Sophia, “and I encourage everyone [who participates] to make the best of it, live every day as if it were your last, and experience everything that you can!”
Our interns make such a positive difference in the development sectors of Cape Town and New Delhi. We would love to offer you the same experience as Sophia and the many other interns who have participated in our programme.
