I had a great internship experience with Geneva Global. I worked mostly with a project for AIDS orphans in Africa, particularly with the preliminary research, as well as a pilot program of DVDs about basic life skills of different topics. With this, I was in charge of tracking data of questionaire responses and starting the analysis portion. I learned a lot about develpment projects and how to run an effective program in other parts of the world. The people were great to work with and even the CEO was very accessible. It was interesting to work in a small agency with many different responsibilities and was a very valuable experience.
