Exploring the woods of Cape

I have always been fascinated about visiting South Africa since my childhood days. I would love to enjoy the environment, culture and more over would like to look into the life style of tribes there.Africa being a very large continent with more than 800 languages and diverse ethnic culture, i have always been curious about being there.If i ever get an opportunity to be there, I will be fascinated enough to make documentaries, capture the photograph of wildlife.

Internship at PASSOP

I will take a tremendous amount away from my internship for it helped me grow in many ways. Like most things in life, my internship wasn't entirely what I expected but in the end, this was actually a good thing. It taught me to be self motivated and empower myself to see the changes that needed to be done. The staff was so friendly and working with refugees was unlike any other work I have ever done before. I've truly grown from this experience and am really grateful for it.

Never be sad in Africa

My internship taught me to be comfortable with my own initiative. I was alone for the first six weeks so I had to get over being shy. During my internship, I have had a platform to practice my social working skills which has taught me a lot. The staff was amazing and very inspirational too so I have also learned a lot from them personally.

Internship at ARESTA

ARESTA gave me the opportunity to see hands on the struggles many South African citizens face. It was amazing to see the changes in communities after we implemented our programs.
My internship definitely stretched my comfort zone. I learned to go with the flow and become more patient and understanding. Professionally I learned that you will not always get praised or acknowledged for doing good work but that doesn't mean your boss doesn't appreciate it.

Hooked on Cape Town

This internship really stretched my comfort zone. CTRC puts a lot of trust in their interns, so I had a lot of responsibility right of the start. I conducted interviews, processed finances, created a support group, taught human rights workshops and helped organize the CTRC Nelson Mandela day, plus National Women Day. I've learned so much about social work, the nature of poverty and education in South Africa, the effects of rape and war on women and African feminisim in general. My experience with VAC and in Cape Town was wonderful. The VAC staff is so frinedly and supportive, while Cape Town itself is the most beautiful and interesting city. After this experience, I can easily see myself coming back and staying for years.
