My Travel Story

by: Mckenzie Swain Start Date: Nov 6, 2016 - End Date: Jan 4, 2017
This summer I am going to Cape Town, South Africa to intern for the NGO Embrace Dignity. The organization is grounded in ending human trafficking through lobbying, advocacy, research and public education. Embrace Dignity looks to empower women, create public awareness on the links between poverty and prostitution, work for law reform and produce a social dialogue on the exploitation of women in South Africa.

I hope to get involved in international development and human rights, so this internship is an amazing opportunity to create a platform for my future, while also helping to create a sustainable difference in South Africa. I am very passionate about these issues, and cannot wait to gain a new global perspective.
