Fall Intern

September 2019 Princeton, NJ
“The team I worked with was extremely professional, kind and helpful. I was always given clear instructions from team members on how to attend to a task which made my life easier. Not to mention there is a close knit environment in the office which makes it a comfortable place for questions and immediate help. There was a wide variety of tasks that I worked on that made my internship interesting.”

“PiAf is a great opportunity to get real experience working at an organization on the African continent. The fellows are a very thoughtful and impressive group and it was a pleasure to get to know them. ”
