Two Richmond Vale Academy interns recount their unforgettable experiences as teachers in Malawi

Planet Aid supports scholarship internships to Richmond Vale Academy, in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The internship helps to nurture and develop community organization skills and provides an opportunity to learn about sustainability at a grassroots level.

During this three-month training, students prepare for their six-month assignment to assist with capacity-building and community organization to implement development projects in specified communities in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Lia Ramirez and Paula Rodriguez participated in the Richmond Vale Academy internship program. Lia comes from a business and industrial management background and Paula worked in architectural design, but both wanted to make an impact outside of the office.

Watch and listen as the two share their stories about their unforgettable experience working as teachers in Malawi.
