Agua Inc is an international water treatment technology and infrastructure company that provides plant-based wastewater treatment and drinking water purification systems using natural methods on four continents and has built over 175 systems, greatly reducing child mortality and cholera wherever our systems are present. With 10 years of experience, we have brought together experts in engineering, building, biology, botany, and urban planning to offer affordable and lasting systems.

Agua Inc is proud to announce Agua Campus, located in The Gambia in the heart of West Africa, dedicated to teaching hands-on tactics of designing sustainable solutions for the largest issues we face globally. Agua Inc is now offering a revolutionary internship opportunity, where impact and experience are intertwined with learning our innovative water treatment methods and consulting techniques. Work with Agua technology, create game-changing media, integrate with Gambian government and department representatives, work closely with communities in need, or create a custom program within our extensive network. Because we understand that changing the world takes several dimensions, we offer much more than water.

Lasting three weeks or more, Agua Interns will collaborate with an accomplished Agua mentor, as well as local Gambian peers and professionals, to critically think and take action in the developing world. Agua Inc is seeking to train dedicated, flexible, and impossibly-thinking individuals that want to create the greatest impact on this planet.


A day with Agua Inc as an intern involves facing large projects and unexpected issues with professionalism, resourcefulness, and the solution of saying “I can.” Among workdays with a company dynamic unparalleled to anyone else, you will get to fully immerse yourself in the Gambian culture and work directly with the people you will aim to impact while intimately gaining in-country socio-economic knowledge.

Developing your global perspective, your expertise in sustainable technologies and development, and learning the power of effective impact are only some of the outcomes of the Agua Internship. The branching personal and pre-professional development you will derive is not comparable to any other intern-abroad experience, all while developing a powerful network within global development.

We hope to see you in The Gambia, and see you on the other side of world change.


Must currently be enrolled in college or have a college degree in a relevant field of study or be interested in any aspect of global development.
