Village Women Programs Development Intern in Africa

Art in Tanzania



Summary
Art in Tanzania supports and develops village women's initiatives. The main activities are vocational training in English, IT, entrepreneurship, women's rights, and related subjects. We are also developing medical services and health information sessions.

Details
Tanzania has a large group of young mothers in the villages that have little or no education and are without financial support. Areas that are often heavily populated, which complicate the strive of livelihood and provision for these Mother’s children.

Most women lack the opportunity to reach education to fund and develop small businesses. Additionally, many of these women are under-empowered or unaware of their basic human rights, thus making young mothers vulnerable to abuse.

Art in Tanzania is focusing to deliver skills for women to start their own small businesses and to create markets for their products. At the same time, we educate women's rights and related subjects so that women will learn their rights in problem situations. We focus to be both innovative and effective.

We are looking to hire multi-professional students and interns to support our work. We tailor the posts according to the participant's focus and interests and skills.

We look to be innovative. Interns bring their ideas that we look for to implement to strengthen the fieldwork. We encourage innovation and self-led creativity in the professional program approach.

Work with women is under-funded but Art in Tanzania has multi-professional interns and volunteers. We use teamwork to create opportunities. One can teach how to start horticulture and one can look for the markets.

The base effort is to increase the small business skills through the educational approach and to increase awareness.

We also focus to give visibility to women's issues through social media for the Tanzanian general population.

Your internship is being daily supervised by academic level team leaders. We monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.

The internship outcome is to learn to use and to get experience to implement your education in developing country conditions with limited capacitation. Also, to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy.

Interns work in teams of international students and volunteer professionals. We encourage innovation in the program approach. Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

This is an ongoing program so we can adjust your start dates. We accept applications from all students and alumni. Your placement is tailored according to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities.

Your program can be from 2 weeks up to 12 months. You can also conduct thesis and related tasks. The common daily tasks include practical fieldwork, planning, reporting, and visibility tasks.
