A Kenyan adventure
Doing your internship in Africa is an adventure and you learn mostly by a "handson" and practical approach and by exchanging ideas. In this case it's an internship in Kenya, so you will learn about a new culture and the way of life in your host county. Doing your internship in Africa will give you a lot of new experiences and you will probably make new friends in notime.
Internship in Tourism
Butterfly4Volunteers does not only mediate attachments at High Schools and Universities for students from abroad. We do much more. Working in tourism with Butterfly4Volunteers is another great way to start your internship. For example, you can join Jacyjoka Apartments and Netherken Safaris in Kenya and work as a marketing assistant, a great way to explore Kenya and develop some skills in the meantime. Also, Butterfly4Volunteers arranges internships at hotels and apartments in different places and in different stations such as the front office, in house keeping, kitchenmanagement (including cooking), or garden maintenance.

What to expect when you start your internship in Kenya
On arrival in Kenya, we pick you up from the airport and take you to your place of residence where you will be staying during your tour. On the following day you will be given an orientation and/or start at your project of choice. We will maintain contact by phone and plan a monthly visit at your place of service. We expect the students to integrate well at work and/or at the place of residence, but in case of an emergency you can always phone us for advice and assistance.
