Internship Programme

APPLICATIONS OPEN (closing 13th June 2014)


As part of UHAI's commitment to strengthening East Africa's LGBTI and sex worker movements, we run an Internship Programme that offers two LGBTI and sex workers identifying activists opportunity to work at UHAI for 3-6 months, every January and July. Skills acquired in the course of the internship are  then transferred to their home organisations after the internship period. 

A modest stipend to help cover transport, accommodation and meal costs is provided during internship, as well as reimbursement for relocation and transport for successful interns coming in from out of Nairobi, including from East African countries other than Kenya. In all recruitment, UHAI upholds the principle of equality under the universally recognised legal human rights framework.

Duration of the Internship:

The internship opportunity runs on a three-month ‘block’ basis. Interns will be accorded opportunity to apply for a further term of three months on successful completion of the first term of three months. No further extensions of internship are granted after completing six months.


Applications now open

UHAI seeks to recruit two interns to provide administrative and logistical support to our grant-making and programmes work. The interns report to the UHAI Programme Officer: Grant Making and Capacity Support.
