Internships at the Ssamba Foundation

Duration
Ssamba Foundation offers students and graduates the possibility of doing an internship for a period of two to three months. In exceptional cases, the duration of the internship may be shortened or extended.

Terms

The intern should have completed an undergraduate degree in a field relevant to our work: community development, social work, economics, agriculture or any other related field. If, in addition, you have a master’s degree, a master’s degree or a first professional experience, your application also has a good chance of being accepted.  Good knowledge of English is desirable. The candidate must have functional computer skills (mastery of office).

Field of activities

The field of activity of the intern depends essentially on the cycles of our projects and the period of the internship. If possible, your internship will be the subject of a project which will be determined according to your needs, your knowledge and your centers of interest. You will have the opportunity to take part in and attend the various projects covered during your stay, which are generally supervised by experienced team. To find out about our different lines of work, you can consult the sections of our website in the “Programs & Projects” tab.

Favorable period

Our work activities run throughout the year. If you opt for an internship, make sure you apply in advance at least 3 months before the start dates.

Remuneration

Unfortunately, we are unable to reimburse expenses such as transport, accommodation, meals and allowances for interns. However, expenses directly related to the project within the framework of our activities, such as transport expenses from office to project site, are reimbursed.
