To finish off our series on A Day In the Life of a Global Intern, we have Kenya.

If you haven’t had a chance, take a peek at the other global internship locations in the series: Thailand, France, and Indonesia.

Here is the full schedule example schedule for a typical day on the Kenya Global Internship:

  • 6:30am-7:30am – Wake up and put on my breezy dira, it’s too hotfor anything else.

  • 7:30am-8:30am – Walk to Mama Abdi’s duka for some mandazi and strawberry mala for breakfast, yum!

  • 8:30am-9:15am – Walk to the main road to grab a taxi and cross the river to the neighboring village, to teach Old Testament bible stories to thewatoto( which means children) at the village pre-school.

  • 11:30am-1:00pm – Head back to town with my ministry partner for lunch. Mango juice and samosas are definitely on the menu.

  • 1:00pm-3:30pm – The afternoon heat is too much to be out and about, so we settle in at a Habiba and her family’s house for chai and ask some of our Ethnography questions about their culture and point of view.

  • 3:30pm-5:00pm – Do a little shopping in town for dinner before heading home, we visit the same people each time to build relationships, and get the best price.

  • 5:00pm-7:00pm – the ladies of the team eat dinner together every night, Mexican food is a common dish since the ingredients are similar to what you can buy at the market. It is a time for us to have team building and debrief our day.

    7:00pm-10:00pm – No going out after 6pm, so instead we develop lesson plans for story time with the watoto the next day, get some homework done, work out, and hit the sack!
