I interned with HEEALS for 6 weeks and absolutely loved it! The experience is one which I don't think you could get elsewhere. There are never any agencies involved, so it's a very authentic experience. You stay with the managing director's family, eat local food, visit local tourist attractions or you can even venture further on your weekends off, as I did!
The internship, too, is very practical. You will help in whatever way you can, whether you are interested in film making, fundraising, teaching English or other extra-curricular activities outside the traditional curriculum in schools and even help to develop projects! I will be keeping in touch with the team at HEEALS to help in any way I can from home! I would recommend the experience to everyone!'
