Event Description

The Health Grand Challenge internship program will host an information session on Emzingo’s Global Impact Fellowships in Global Health, with positions located in Peru and South Africa.

About the internship:

Emzingo's Global Impact Fellowship is a leadership and social impact program where students consult for nonprofits and social enterprises while undergoing an intensive leadership and personal development curriculum. Global Health Impact fellows in Peru or South Africa will be placed into teams of 3 or 4 students to assist health-related nonprofits and social impact startups solve a key strategic challenge, implement new programs, or conduct research. Emzingo will assist fellows to design and oversee the development of their projects, and each team will also be paired to a mentor with significant relevant knowledge in the field.

Past projects in South Africa have included developing a parental training program for parents of children with HIV/AIDS at a child hospice center, and creating a marketing and budgeting strategy for an HIV/AIDS and orphan and vulnerable children center in the townships. In Peru students will have the opportunity to work with nonprofits working for the prevention and control of Tuberculosis, social enterprises working to bring clean toilets and sanitation to underprivileged areas, or organizations working to help women suffering from physical and domestic abuse. Selected positions in Peru require fluency in Spanish. This internships lasts 8 weeks with start and end dates to be determined.
