Interning in the Village

An end-of-trip reflection from our wonderful intern, Amanda, on her time in Makuleke Village: “When posed with the question what do I want to do in life, I respond with: ‘THIS.’ What I am doing at this exact moment. I want to help, I want to learn from others, I want to have a meaningful impact on those I work with. I want to shine my light onto others and know someone was positively influenced by my actions.”




“Ubuntu: It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.” – Archbishop Desmond Tutu
