Intern in the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa: Equatorial Guinea
What we are looking for: Do you have the urge to work internationally? Do you feel you could inspire others to dream for a better life? Are you a motivated individual and hard worker? Come join us for our international development internships in Equatorial Guinea, West Africa. This is only Spanish speaking country in Africa and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Our highly competitive placements are designed for individuals who are looking for a hands-on and real experience, in a way that is tailored to fit not only our target community's needs, but yours as well.
Project Interns: Are you an upper-level undergraduate looking to get experience? Intern with The Ladybug Project, and help us in our community outreach programs which span healthcare, education, public health, business, outreach, and a wide-range of outreach and capacity building campaigns. These internships are custom-built and we can usually accommodate most majors. We will work with your university in order to help you earn credit, and have done so with almost a dozen American universities in the past.
Graduate Students: We are happy to work with graduate students and provide semester-long, credit-based (if you like), research and/or project internships. With our network of supporters both in and outside the country, and our existing university research partnerships, we can provide you with the connected and forward-thinking learning environment you need!
Requirements for ALL applicants:
- Must be willing to work full-time. - Must speak conversational Spanish. - Must be 21+ years of age. - Prior international travel viewed favorably in application process.
The application process is competitive, so be sure to address the above requirements in your cover letter! We want to know that YOU'VE got what it takes!
What you will gain:
- hands on experience working in international development. - project management skills in a multicultural and resource-limited environment...perfect training for a future in development and aid work. - a deep understanding of the Equatoguinean community. You will be working closely with local interns and the community; expect to be immersed in the experience! - an authentic experience that goes well beyond your typical volunteer-vacation. - the opportunity to continue working with The Ladybug Project (successful interns and volunteer consultants are considered first for job openings). - we will work with university students to make sure that you get full academic credit for the work that you do with us!
Interns and volunteer consultants are asked to pay a monthly fee of $750 to cover the cost of housing and administration. This fee covers your accommodation (electricity, running water, WIFI connection), airport pick up/drop off, any and all administration associated with your placement, and allows us to continue providing the community with our services.
