Human Rights Internships
South Africa boasts what has been acclaimed as the most progressive constitution in the world, and yet faces many significant challenges as a country still in transition. As such, it provides a stimulating environment for anyone to learn more about human rights issues. Previous Cape Town human rights interns have had richly rewarding experiences in this field.
Cape Town human rights internships have included assisting case workers at refugee centers, researching gender-rights issues in relation to the ‘Millennium Development Goals’, and reporting on child labor issues. Other opportunities include advocating and involvement for human trafficking legislation both in South Africa and observing Parliamentary hearings. In fact, previous Connect-123 human rights program participants in Cape Town have had their research published.
