The if i could… team is more than just an awesome and attractive group of individuals trying to save the world one internship at a time! We also enjoy spending the day volunteering!
We’re kind, happy, helpful people who want to see change happen. To this end, we support the organisations in our network in numerous ways. Earlier this year we took part in Blisters for Bread which supports an organisation focusing on nutrition for previously disadvantaged individuals.
A Day Volunteering
Then there was our stellar performance in the Colour Run Cape Town, which supported another host organisation working out of Landsdown. In addition, we recently we did our bit as volunteers at this year’s Cape Town International Kite Festival.
The Kite festival is an annual event hosted by Cape Mental Health. Every year people from all over come to the beautifully scenic coastal town of Muizenberg to cash in on the sea breeze and fly their kites. This year’s selection showcased many fantastic kites. Among them was one of our favourites, Toothless, the cuddly dragon from How To Train Your Dragon.
At if i could… we work hard to provide the same level of support to both the organisations we work with and the interns we place with them. if i could… provides meaningful internships at non-profit organisations for passionate international students and graduates looking to start a career in the development sector. These internships make a positive difference!
