Interns play a very important role in RIDE AFRICA’s work and we welcome applications from students and recent graduates from Uganda and around the world. We are always looking for new interns to support us in our: development programs such as working for children’s and women’s rights, . Internships are available in our two regional offices: Fort Portal, Kabarole and Karugutu, Ntoroko. RIDE AFRICA internships are normally for three months and can be a maximum of six months
We encourage applications from positive and motivated young people to serve as interns. The purpose of the internship is to provide an opportunity for individuals to substantively contribute to and learn from our work. The intern will be given specific tasks and responsibilities and will be challenged to develop their capabilities and gain experience. We are looking for interns who are committed, hard-working, positive, open-minded, reflective and willing to learn.
We seek to find a balance between Uganda interns and those from other countries. We look for a diversity of interests, backgrounds and experiences. At any one time we expect to host between three and five interns.
