Looking for an internship in Japan or Uganda? Intern with Ashinaga, an NGO aiming to provide emotional and educational support to orphaned students. Round-trip flight, accommodation, meals, daily stipend, and so on provided!

What are you going to do

The Ashinaga Internship Program began in 2013 as an English teaching program for students in Japan and Uganda, which enabled interns to acquire the problem-solving skills and adaptability needed in multicultural environments. Since then, our program has grown to encompass a variety of departments and functions, as well as a new location in Dakar, Senegal. Interns now have the ability to choose between a number of different fields within the organization and we hope that by tapping the minds of intellectuals from all over the world we'll be able to turn Ashinaga into an all-embracing, international NGO. To date we have had interns from over 50 global universities in several dozen countries. We invite you to join us on our journey!

Japan Benefits:
• Roundtrip Airfare
• Accommodation in Japan (at Ashinaga facilities)
• Daily Breakfast & Dinner (at Ashinaga facilities)

• A monthly stipend of $150 or Ugandan shillings equivalent.
• Accommodation is provided within easy walking distance of our place of work; interns will live together.
• A highly enjoyable and potentially transformative internship (75% of interns responded that it 'exceeded their expectations').

    Location: Kampala, Uganda

    Term Dates
    Preparation Camp (May - June) | Study Camp (June - August) | Study Camp (August - December)

    The Ashinaga Africa Initiative will be welcoming around 25 selected scholars from 25 different countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to our leadership program in Kampala, Uganda, to receive academic training in their studies of interest, as well as assistance applying to universities around the world. Through education, Ashinaga hopes to empower its students to make the change that they wish to see in their communities, countries, and Africa as a whole. These students have all lost one or both parents, and have been specifically chosen due to their academic ability, financial need and potential for leadership.

    Students attend a Study Camp (June - December), which focuses on academic improvement, as well as university applications. We are looking for a range of interns to support these students in IELTS and SAT exam preparation, essay writing, STEM, and subject-specific studies. Interns will work in teams; teaching will enhance interns' problem-solving skills and provide them with an opportunity to build upon and solidify their own skills, such as designing experiments, explaining concepts clearly, and expanding upon topics learned earlier in university. Students then return in May for Preparation Camp (May - June). Intern responsibilities will be more focused on preparing scholars for life at university in another culture. In addition, we are currently looking for Francophone (French-speaking) and Lusophone (Portuguese-speaking) interns to work with our students in their respective languages. Join us to make a big impact on the lives of these students, whilst learning more about yourself and gaining a wealth of international experience.
