GVI interns working on our community development programs in Ghana will partner with local partner organisations in the area. The particular issues they will be tackling will be decided by these local organisations but interns can expect to get involved in projects addressing issues related to education, healthcare, gender equality or construction projects. Our community development internships aim to contribute to a selection of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal #4 - Quality Education, #5 -Gender Equality and #10 – Reduced Inequalities.
Join GVI’s short term community development internships starting in 2018 to provide support to organisations working to contribute to community development in the Greater Accra region.
All GVI internships are geared at developing your leadership skills, allowing you to develop a variety of key soft and hard skills that will put you a step ahead the rest of the pack.

I interned in Gordon’s Bay, South Africa, on the Community Development Project and it was the most eye-opening, intense and amazing time of my life! It may sound an exaggeration…but believe me, it’s not! The people you meet, the children you teach, the places you visit, the friendships you build…everything together makes this experience truly inspiring. It feels great talking and spreading the word about such a reliable organisation and, above all, the great experience I had!!
