Program Description:
Internships in Ghana

Ghana is a great place to pursue an internship whether you are just starting your career or to broaden your experience. Successful interns have the ability to be flexible, maintain a sense of humor in frustrating situations, and a deep interest in learning firsthand about the vibrant cultures of Ghana.

Water and Sanitation

Access to water has been one of the biggest and most controversial issues in Ghana during the past 10 years. Water shortages and been experienced in both urban and rural areas due to drought and lack of infrastructure. Many families start their day with a hike of several miles in search of water. Interns can work with an organization devoted to providing sustainable potable water and sanitation services to rural communities in Ghana. A major component of this project is hygiene education and promotion in order to prevent comtamination of the water supply and illnesses such as cholera, typhoid, and parasites which are associated with unsafe water sanitation. Interns wanting to be involved with the actual digging of wells should joing the program during the dry season (October-May) because the water table rises during the wet season, and many roads become impassable.
