Role of interns

The interns begin by shadowing ICHRAPS staff members, learning from them and hopefully gaining an insight into their area of interest.
Their responsibilities depend on their previous experience, as well as their enthusiasm and level of initiative.
However, to begin with they must view themselves as interns with a learning role. The onus is on them to prove themselves.
They should dress the part and take their role seriously.
South Africa has a long and sad history of human rights violations, many of these violations still affecting many South Africans to this day.
Creating awareness, investigating human rights violations, educating underprivileged populations on their rights, are all seriously needed here in South Africa.
Projects Abroad Human Rights Office encourages the interns to choose an area of interest that is compatible with their passions and career aspirations. This could be an area already covered by our existing activities, or an additional area of personal interest.

Interns utilize various methodologies throughout their placement such as:
Academic research and reporting (with publication in mind)
Interviewing victims/ perpetrators
Out-of-office fieldwork, including visits to:
Courts of law
Abused women and children centers
Places of safety for children
Non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
Libraries and resource centers;
Community work
Community presentations
Conferences/ workshops/ public debate attendance
Parliamentary monitoring
