Here’s what some of our volunteers and interns have said about their time at Asante Africa Foundation
“I don’t have much experience with marketing and media, so working on this campaign was a great experience. I learned so much! I also loved meeting so many hardworking and inspiring people!”
“The Asante mission aligns seamlessly with my own views, particularly in its efforts with girls’ empowerment and education. Many developing countries do not embrace gender equality, and it is not feasible to expect these economies to grow when half of their workforce is not empowered to participate.”
“working here is a rewarding experience that allows you to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom to real life instances.”
