Alice is Kobit Sante’s Social Media and Fundraising intern for the summer of 2021. Alice is a rising junior at Bates College studying Anthropology and Religious studies. She hopes to pursue work in the non-profit field once she graduates. She stated, “Interning at Konbit Sante this summer has been an incredible opportunity. I have been able to get a taste of what a future career in the field of global health would look and feel like.”
Some of her responsibilities include creating, editing, and publishing content for Konbit Sante’s social media accounts, interviewing and developing organizational profiles, and writing various pieces for the newsletters. She is also leading the efforts with our summer fundraiser, We Walk with Haiti. She has developed content for it, collaborated with team members to set up their fundraising pages, and raised funds for the walk too!
While working remotely, she has been able to attend our US-based staff meetings and the Fundraising and Communications Committee meetings. She has also been working with team members individually, as it pertains to her internship role. In writing the profiles and newsletter pieces, she has had the opportunity to connect with the Haiti-based staff members to learn more about their work and the programs they operate. Alice mentioned, “One of my favorite responsibilities is talking to our partners in Haiti. Their stories are powerful and inspiring. Being involved in such a small part of the work at Konbit Sante has been a very rewarding experience for me.”
We are excited to have a summer intern from Bates College and hope to continue the internship program with Bates Colleges and other nearby colleges and universities in the years to come!
