Housing/Accommodation

One of the main objectives behind our internship programs is the need for cultural integration. We therefore provide home stay accommodation for our interns, enabling them to learn and integrate within the community and the local culture. 

Interns are welcomed to raise funds to support the activities of the Nkwa Foundation or their host organization.
