Summer Internship in Botswana
Fels MGA students Maura O'Brien and Natalie Vernon spent the summer of 2009 interning in Botswana with the Upenn-Botswana Partnership. Each summer, this program sponsors twelve students for 10-week internships working with such organizations as the Botswana International Financial Services Center and the Kamogelo Orphans and Vulnerable Children's Project. Maura had a wonderful experience at Kamogelo, where she wrote grant proposals, made home visits and assisted with budgeting and financial management. “My manager was an absolutely fabulous woman to work with, and she made it really easy to feel useful."
