ABAN–Chapel Hill Non-Profit seeking Spring Interns.A Ban Against Neglect is a non-profit in Accra, Ghana working to empower street girls while cleaning up the environment. The main form of safe, clean drinking water in Ghana is sachet bags, bags that are like sandwich-sized plastic bags filled with water. Since there is no formal waste collection, over 40 tons of these bags are thrown into the streets every day. Every night, over 30,000 youth fall asleep on those same streets. Over one third of these youth are young mother’s and their babies. Gender-based discrimination, lack of family support, financial stability and marketable skills make these street girls some of the most vulnerable in Ghana and contributes to the growth in second-generation street children.Check out : http://www.aban.org/get-involved to learn about 3 internship positions available THIS SPRING!

“The Alice Rowan Swanson Fellowship awards funds to SIT Study Abroad or IHP alumni returning to the country of their program to pursue development projects which benefit human rights in that region. The Fellowship is a great opportunity for SIT Study Abroad or IHP alumni to apply their skills, vision, and knowledge to benefit the communities they studied in and became a part of during their time abroad.”·   “Apply by October 1st for the Alice Rowan Swanson Fellowship to pursue development projects in your SIT Study Abroad or IHP host country.”Right now, a lot of the language online and in the application itself is geared towards SIT Study Abroad alumni, not IHP alumni.  IHP alumni are advised that their Fellowship applications will be accepted and held to the same guidelines and criteria that are currently in place. For IHP applicants, the applicable Country Coordinator ideally or Faculty should complete the “Academic Director Reference Form” (page 3 of the application).The online language in the application will be adjusted to include IHP candidates, but it may not be ready for this current application round.MAIN SITE: Fellowship Background Information, Guidelines & Eligibility & the Fellowship Application – this is the best site to direct students to because it has all the general information about applying

Important Fellowship Guidelines

·   The next deadline for applications is October 1, 2012

·   Preference will be given to students that studied abroad with SIT/IHP within the past five years

·   No joint applications will be accepted

·   This is a human rights fellowship for action-based projects, not a research grant, however action-research proposals are acceptable

·   The project must be in the country where the student studied, for IHP alumni this could be one or multiple countries that were part of their program

·   Students can re-apply for the Fellowship throughout the year (deadlines are Oct 1st and March 1st every year)

·   Preference is given to projects which will begin in the next 12 months, but there is no minimum or maximum project length

·   It takes at least two months to process applications, paperwork and funding. Therefore, the March deadline is for projects that will take place between May and November of that year. The October deadline is for projects that take place between December and April of that year.

I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina Wilmington and am currently in Uganda volunteering for a NGO called Youth Focus Africa Foundation. It is an amazing grassroots organization that is based in Lugazi, Uganda and has done incredible things to better the local community. They are in real need of more volunteers but don’t want to go through the larger global volunteer networks because of the high fees that are placed on the volunteers. So I am researching some ways to get more volunteers to Uganda.YOFAFO currently relies on a group of about a dozen students coming from Appalachian State University every year. This year they began work on a health centre in Kitoola village where they have previously built schools. It has been a great improvement to the community. We would love to expand this and create lasting relationships with other universities in the US and around the world. We are hoping that UNC will be interested in working with YOFAO in the future. Would it be possible to provide some information for your students on volunteering with this charity? I would be happy to send some fliers for the International Programs office or provide any other information you may require.YOFAFO accepts volunteers for a variety of different projects and time periods and I can personally vouch for them being incredibly reliable and welcoming to international volunteers. Living and working in Uganda has been such a rewarding and educational experience. I recommend it wholeheartedly.You can learn more about YOFAFO’s current projects on their website: http://youthfocusafricafoundation.com/ or Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/YOFAFO
Please note that the website is due to be upgraded in the next week.In addition to their general need for volunteers, YOFAFO are currently looking for volunteers for the following internships specifically: Administrative Fundraising Officer, Marketing Assistant and a Volunteer Coordinator.  I think these would be great opportunities for students, and could possibly fill work study requirements.

Please do let me know if it will be possible to share this information with your students. I look forward to your response!

Best wishes,
Danielle
