Is a Human Rights internship in Ghana for teenagers right for me?

Are you interested in getting practical human rights work experience abroad? Do you want to help support and empower disadvantaged people at the same time? If you answered yes to these questions, this internship has your name on it! 


You’ll work with our staff at the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office. The work you do here will add value to your CV, and give you plenty of interesting points to talk about in applications and interviews. You can also add human rights work experience to your CV, giving it an edge. In the process, you’ll also demonstrate your commitment to helping others.


On this internship you will be able to brush up on a host of valuable practical skills, such as teamwork, communication, and time management. You will also have the opportunity to help disadvantaged communities and victims of abuse through educational workshops and activities.


You don’t need any specific skills or qualifications for this placement. You will be taught everything you need to know during the project, and Projects Abroad staff will be there to guide you at all times. 


This High School Special runs over fixed dates for either two or four weeks during the summer. The itinerary is set, and there is extra staff support, ensuring that you will be safe and guided through every step of the process.

Your work will focus on the following areas:


Raise awareness about human rights and get involved in other outreach activities



You will assist with raising awareness about human rights in local communities. Although Ghana is one of the most developed countries in Africa, many people face exploitation and abuse on a daily basis and are not aware of their rights. You will play an important role in empowering these people through knowledge and education.


Learn all about Ghana’s unique political and cultural systems


During this internship, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside human rights and legal experts in some of the most marginalised communities in Ghana. These experts have valuable knowledge and research to share, and you will receive numerous lectures and talks from them. You will also be given case studies and assignments in order to learn about Ghana’s unique issues and come up with your own proposed solutions.


We encourage you to ask questions and take lots of notes in order to learn as much as you can on this placement.


Explore Accra with other interns


On the weekends you will have a chance to discover Accra with your fellow interns. You will visit the old Cape Coast Castle, and Kakum National Park. You will also have the opportunity to soak up some sun on the beautiful local beaches.


Various social and cultural activities will also be arranged for you, so that you will have a chance to make friends and learn more about life in Ghana. All activities and trips will be supervised by Projects Abroad staff.


Where in Ghana will I work?

Accra

You will stay with a local host family, and will work with the community on human rights programmes. You will split your time between the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office and working in these communities.


You will have the opportunity to explore Ghana with your fellow interns on weekends, which will include visiting Cape Coast, Kakum National Park, and some beautiful local beaches. All activities are planned for you and supervised by Projects Abroad staff.

What are the aims and impacts of this project?

The main aim of this internship is to give you the opportunity to learn about human rights work in practice, and gain hands-on experience. 


Ghana faces numerous social problems and challenges. These include domestic violence, child trafficking, and abuse towards disabled citizens. By taking part in this project, you'll become part of our ongoing efforts to address these issues. You’ll help raise awareness of basic human rights, and help empower people.


By working alongside human rights and legal experts, you’ll learn a lot about human rights work in action. You’ll also develop your personal skills such as communication, time management and teamwork. These skills, along with international experience, will add a lot of value to your CV, which could help your future career.
