Internship
PROGRAM

Slider

In Kenya, it is difficult for young women to find meaningful work. Very few students have the practical skills and experience required by the highly competitive job market.

The 2019 youth unemployment rate in Kenya is 38.5% compared to 13.2% globally.

This is why One Girl Can has developed an internship program that pairs students with viable businesses in their field of study. Internships bring a wealth of benefits to our students, both while completing a degree and when seeking a career path post-graduation.

The program

Our program will offer students real life work experience, invaluable training, confidence building and network building under the mentorship and guidance of dedicated professionals. The program has been carefully developed to ensure a meaningful experience and an environment for students to learn, thrive and excel in and ultimately offers an opportunity to find long term employment.

For $125/month for 12 months or a one-time donation of $1,500 you are offering a launchpad for young women to prepare themselves to thrive in their life and their future careers.

HOW IS MY DONATION ALLOCATED?

• Professional coaching and training from an accredited internship placement organization to ensure the student shows up prepared for her job.
• Six month internship placement with a pre-qualified organization offering a structured training program suitable to the student’s skills and career path.
• Bi-weekly follow-up by the internship placement organization to ensure the student and the organization are working together satisfactorily.
• Living expenses for six months.
