We are often asked whether it’s possible to do internships or volunteer at Free a Girl USA partner organizations abroad. Unfortunately, we don’t allow this for a number of reasons:
- Our partner organizations work with vulnerable and traumatized girls and children. These individuals benefit from the support of a fixed team of professionals who will stay with them for a longer period of time.
- The girls need to be able to focus on working towards their rehabilitation in a peaceful environment.
- Almost all activities are undertaken locally in our project countries. As we want to encourage local development, our partners work exclusively with local employees and local volunteers/interns.
