I have been a Fundraising Intern at Greenpop for three months in 2016. The experience was unique: lots of learning and fun at the same time. As a fundraising intern, I learnt to interact with donors, mantain relationships and plan campaigns, but also to create and manage data bases, and analyse data a prepare project proposals. I was given guidance and autonomy at the same time and this was so useful to kickstart my career! Professional skills is not the only thing you get. The program allows you to share your time with school kids in some of the most underpriviledged areas of town and be aware of the reality around you, which may be extremely different from home. Most importantly, Greenpop gave me the chance to meet some of the most interesting people I have ever knew. Greenpop team is inspiring, ambitious and can become a real family, able to support every intern in his/her journey through the never-ending adventures and challenges which Cape Town offers. It was beautifull sharing my time with all the team during Rockin' the Daisies festival, where Greenpop and all its friends gathered to manage the Green Village: just one of the several opportunities which the internship offers. In three words: learning, enjoying, planting!
