At our company internship placements are distinct and are organized separately from volunteer programs. Unlike many other study abroad organizations, your international internship is NOT interchangeable with a volunteer abroad program.
Internships are designed to give you professional work experience, build your Swahili language proficiency, and expand your career network.
On the other hand, volunteering abroad is about community service, and these projects are focused on helping in-need and under-funded programs and people. Both internships and volunteer programs are important, but each program focuses on different outcomes.
