The Ashinaga Africa Initiative will welcome around 25 selected scholars from over 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.
Anglophone and Lusophone students attend a Study Camp (July - 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, mathematics, and subject-specific studies. 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 (April - June). The preparation camp brings students from Ashinaga's anglophone and francophone programmes together and intern responsibilities will be more focused on preparing scholars for life at university in another culture, with classes taught in both English and French.
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!
Note: The scholars you will have the possibility to work with are mostly soon-to-be university students.
