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?
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.
