Volunteer Reviews

“I have had the most amazing time interning with African Impact; gaining new skills, making lifelong friends and forever being inspired. The whole office is warm and welcoming, making you feel like part of the team from day one. I particularly loved visiting the amazing Cape Town projects in order to learn more about what we are marketing and witness first hand what African Impact is all about. I would highly recommend this internship to anyone interested in Marketing and Social Media, it has provided me with a whole new skill set to carry with me through future career choices. I couldn’t have wished for a better experience and can’t thank African Impact enough!

“This 3 month internship has been the best experience of my life from the moment I arrived in Cape Town. My expectations were exceeded in every aspect, from the knowledge I gained to the friends I made and the adventures we went on. Days spent in the office were never boring thanks to my 2 amazing bosses always keeping us interested and motivated. I have always wanted to pursue a career in marketing and this internship has not only solidified my future career but it has also shown me I want to market something I am truly passionate about like volunteer work with a responsible/reliable company.”
