Projects Abroad Law & Human Rights Internships Overseas Reviews

Better experience than I expected!

I went to Argentina for two weeks to study Spanish and gain experience in human rights. I stayed in an Argentinian family with three other students from the United States and the UK. In those two weeks, I took five Spanish lessons per week, went to an elementary school to play with the students using human rights terms, heard a man who lost his sister in the dictatorship in recent history, feed poor people on the street, met a lawyer to discuss the human rights issues in Argentina, and went to the city side to looking the protest against the prohibition of abortion. I learned many things in this project and hope that more students would experience something through Projects Abroad.

Great Experience

I volunteered on a law volunteer programme in Tanzania for a month in August 2017. The office in Arusha was very well run and the programme involved working alongside talented and committed Tanzanians who knew their communities very well to deliver programmes where we made an appreciable, immediate difference. I felt like my skills were well utilised and I also had a great time. It was an amazing experience and I'll definitely be going back!
