Is a Human Rights internship in Ghana for teenagers right for me?

Are you interested in getting practical human rights work experience abroad? Do you want to help support and empower disadvantaged people at the same time? If you answered yes to these questions, this internship has your name on it! 

By working in a developing country like Ghana, you’ll see different kinds of human rights abuses. You’ll learn how to approach and work with each of these issues. The work you do here will add value to your CV, and give you plenty of interesting points to talk about in applications and interviews. You can also add human rights work experience to your CV, giving it an edge. In the process, you’ll also demonstrate your commitment to helping others.

On this internship you will be able to brush up on a host of valuable practical skills, such as teamwork, communication, and time management. You will also have the opportunity to help disadvantaged communities and victims of abuse through educational workshops and activities.

You don’t need any specific skills or qualifications for this placement. You will be taught everything you need to know during the project, and Projects Abroad staff will be there to guide you at all times. 

This High School Special runs over fixed dates for two weeks during the summer. The itinerary is set, and there is extra staff support, ensuring that you will be safe and guided through every step of the process.

Your work will focus on the following areas:


Raise awareness about human rights and get involved in other outreach activities



You will assist with raising awareness about human rights in local communities. Although Ghana is one of the most developed countries in Africa, many people face exploitation and abuse on a daily basis and are not aware of their rights. You will play an important role in empowering these people through knowledge and education.


Learn all about Ghana’s unique political and cultural systems


During this internship, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside human rights and legal experts in some of the most marginalised communities in Ghana. These experts have valuable knowledge and research to share, and you will receive numerous lectures and talks from them. You will also be given case studies and assignments in order to learn about Ghana’s unique issues and come up with your own proposed solutions.


We encourage you to ask questions and take lots of notes in order to learn as much as you can on this placement.


Explore Accra with other interns


On the weekend you will discover Accra with your fellow interns. You will also visit the old Cape Coast Castle, and Kakum National Park. You will get to soak up some sun on the beautiful local beaches.

Various social and cultural activities will also be arranged for you, so that you will have a chance to make friends and learn more about life in Ghana. This will include language, drumming and traditional dance classes. All activities and trips will be supervised by Projects Abroad staff.

Where in Ghana will I work?


You will stay with a local host family, and will work with the community on human rights programmes. 

You will explore Ghana with your fellow interns on weekends, which will include visiting Cape Coast, Kakum National Park, and some beautiful local beaches. All activities are planned for you and supervised by Projects Abroad staff.
