What are the key drivers and challenges to economic development in Tanzania? And how does the work of local community organizations, think tanks, and government agencies intersect to address modern-day challenges of global development?
In the Development Challenges in Tanzania internship program, you will study the complexities of current challenges and approaches to community-driven development, while testing and applying new knowledge in a part-time internship with a local community-based organization. The internship will be paired with a seminar consisting of readings, reflection assignments, and weekly discussion meetings, with a GU faculty member and other students to deepen your understanding of how your internship site addresses the challenges of sustainable development.
The program will also include Kiswahili language training to deepen your cultural understanding and experience and maximize your capacity to add value at your internship.
