Description

CameroonONE, a Boston-based 501c3 charity organization that takes orphaned children from the Republic of Cameroon out of their orphanages and places them in the households of surviving family members in West Africa, is looking for interns for the Fall and Spring semesters to help raise additional funding for our sponsorship program’s operational budget (to provide education and healthcare needs and identification support to our students; a stipend to their caretakers; as well as funding projects in progress- sustainability schemes, such as bee-farming, and children’s centers and child safe zones for the villages’ children).

These internship opportunities will provide qualified applicants with substantial experience in nonprofit fundraising and development through events planning, grant writing, donor cultivation, solicitation strategizing, and a fundamental knowledge of Nonprofit management and program implementation and expansion. Each intern will be encouraged to take a leadership role in spearheading their own fundraising campaigns within the objectives of the development department, depending on one's experience and hours of availability.

About CameroonONE:
CameroonONE is a Registered 501c3 Charity Organization that provides education and a home to orphaned children in Cameroon.

We believe that this upbringing is fundamental to building productive community members.
