Internships in Kenya, Africa

We are pleased to offer internships in Kenya in Limuru. The Brackenhurst campus where we host our interns is an international learning center, idyllically situated on one-hundred acres, and only forty kilometers from Nairobi. The campus is nestled within a restored indigenous forest and an internationally recognized botanical garden. Brackenhurst is the ideal Kenyan base for studies in virtually any field. Internships in Kenya include social, conservation, economics and research initiatives, and on-site environmental program with surrounding community connections providing a myriad of “real world laboratory” opportunities for our students.

Internships in Kenya

Business Development Internships

Working with the Managing Director, the Director of Operations and the Finance Director at Brackenhurst, students will gain experience in the day to day running of an institution of this nature. Additional experience may be gained at partner businesses on and off campus depending on needs and opportunities that may arise. An interest in finance / account and marketing are particularly welcome.

Community Development Internships

A few kilometers up the road from Brackenhurst is Limuru Children’s Center (LCC). LCC is a community centre with a heart for education and economic betterment of underprivileged children and their families in and around Limuru. While LCC has grown to include an orphanage, their focus remains on keeping families intact and finding ways to help these families work their way out of poverty to provide a better life for their children. Interns will assist in community

liaison, care giving, educating and administration. An additional opportunity to spend a short time with The Maa Trust, a community run development organization in the world famous Maasai Mara ecosystem, may also present itself.

Education Internships

The Brackenhurst Campus hosts Woodland Star School, a progressive international elementary school (there are plans to progress to secondary school). This school is seen as an ideal incubator for holistic, child-centered education in Kenya and as a launch pad for broader professional development and community outreach. With a strong focus on STEM, environmental stewardship and artistic expression, this school combines a number of different traditional school curricula to create a wholly immersive learning experience for its students. The education internship will be based at this school where interns will assist teachers and administrators with lesson planning, teaching and daily school operations.

Forestry & Ecology Internships

This internship will be based at a non-governmental organization at Brackenhurst called Plants for Life International. This organization has taken on a 30 year project to convert fallow farmland, ‘silent’ Eucalyptus plantations and exotic flower beds back to indigenous vegetation and a closed canopy forest that supports and encourages the local biodiversity that has been on a steady decline for the last 60 years. Interns will assist with sample collecting, seed propagation, data collecting, invasive species control and community education, as well as getting involved with any other opportunities that may arise.
