“I cannot say enough about my internship at Blood:Water. It has allowed me to gain experience in a place where I can grow my understanding of donor relationships, partnerships, and the day-to-day necessities that multiply to sustain the work of an organization. The uniqueness of Blood:Water also makes it possible for me to continue working in and pursuing my passion for a sincere African development, while being surrounded by others who believe in this work.” – Amanda Wojcinski, Engagement Intern
“My favorite part of interning at Blood:Water has been experiencing the way this organization and its staff work behind the scenes, with both integrity and passion. In every detail and decision, each staff member is committed to upholding the dignity and ownership of African communities, as well as respecting the generous donors that make Blood:Water’s work possible. It is a truly humbling experience.” – Faith Donels, Marketing Intern
