EASSI: Announcing Internship Programme for Young Women, 2007

The Eastern African Sub-regional Support Initiative for the Advancement of women (EASSI) was formed in 1996 as a post-Beijing support mechanism for Eastern Africa covering the countries of Burundi, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, Tanzania and Uganda.

EASSI is specifically seeking four young women aged 20-30 years from Burundi, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Uganda to join the 2007 Internship Programme. The internship Programme is an innovative and exciting Programme for young women from the Eastern Africa sub-region held every year from April to December. The Programme provides opportunities for learning, interacting and traveling. Its objective is to develop and enhance young women's skills in leadership, lobbying and advocacy, programme management, report writing and analysis, research and documentation, information management, developing resourceful data bases, website maintenance and resource center management. At the end of the internship programme, each intern is expected to produce a research report on an area of their choice but related to the work that EASSI does,
based on their experience at EASSI.
