Is God Calling You to Serve Orphans in Africa?

We often hear the expression, “God has given me a heart for Africa.” Every Orphan’s Hope works exclusively in Zambia, in the southern part of Africa, ministering to orphans and widows and encouraging them to become all that God has created them to be. We build homes for eight orphans and a widow whom they call “mama” and together, they build a new family.

Our Internship program is anywhere between 45 to 60 days over the summer. Interns dedicate their time working closely with the Every Orphan’s Hope staff and discipling our young children and teenagers. Interns help coordinate and run our summer Bible camps called Camp Hope, they tutor our kids and teens in their schooling, and they support our sponsorship program through blogging and social media. Interns are an integral part of our ministry, not just offering supplemental help, but offering new and fresh ideas on how to best reach orphans for Christ.

What makes our internship program unique is that we only accept up to four interns per summer, so you really become part of the Every Orphan’s Hope family. You work closely with the Zambian staff and learn the inner workings of a nonprofit ministry in a developing country. Prior to your leave, you will go through training and learn the basic life skills you’ll need to make the most of your stay and be fully effective in your work.

“Looking back on my summer, I can’t imagine spending it any other way. I was challenged spiritually and Jesus revealed Himself to me in ways He never has before in the U.S. There really aren’t any words to adequately describe just how life-changing my experience was, but there’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be back again someday. Those kids…they have my heart forever.” —Brooke McManus, 2014 Intern
