Meet our 2021 Summer Interns

October 1st, 2021

This fall we have a new group of incredible interns helping with a variety of projects over the coming months. Those projects range from finalizing program details for training expansion in rural El Salvador, completing country profiles and analyzing the needs of the community in Uganda and Zimbabwe, as well as updating and helping develop our Google Classroom software for remote training in Syria. We’re so excited to see all the amazing work they will do and support they will provide to help us equip, empower, and educate local people around the globe. Welcome to the team!
