Program & Communications Intern
About the position:
The majority of people in Western Tanzania have their livelihoods in agriculture but they suffer from poverty due to an underdeveloped agriculture system. You will use your skills in storytelling, media, and communications to help support sustainable agriculture in Western Tanzania. Your work will assist an agriculture social enterprise, Seed Change, in telling their story by effectively communicating their work, image, and goals to current and perspective donors and other Western stakeholders and assisting our Program Manager in running on-going programs. As an intern, you will do more than getting the morning coffee. Instead you will operate as a full member of our team with real responsibilities. We will work with you to accomplish your goals for your internship.
About the Organisation:
Seed Change is committed to lifting smallholder Tanzanian farming families out of poverty through a sustainable oil palm industry in Kigoma. More information about the organisation can be found at seedchangetazania.org
About living in Kigoma, Tanzania:
Seed Change is located in Kigoma, a safe, lakefront town in Western Tanzania. It is a day’s ride away from the nearest large city but a few minutes ride from beautiful beaches. You are welcome to share a comfortable, western style house with other expatriates. The house has a private bedroom for you and a shared bathroom with one other person. It has consistent 24/7 security, hot water, electricity, a gas stove and a lake front view.
