At Roots Interns, we offer internships at nonprofit and NGO organizations. Because these organizations rely on funding to keep their good work going, they are unable to pay their interns. Lack of funding can make it hard to go for that dream internship, but we’re here to help! On our FundMyTravel page, you can quickly build a profile, launch your campaign page and start sharing your page to help spread the word and encourage more people to donate.
Roots Interns is on a mission to create the perfect balance between meaningful work and valuable learning. That’s why we offer non-profit internships in Africa for people around the world; internships that support important social and conservation initiatives happening at a grassroots level. We carefully match the right person with the right organization to reach the most beneficial experience for everyone involved. As an intern, you’ll gain valuable work experience, allowing you to grow your roots.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Roots Interns has teamed up with FundMyTravel so that participants can make their very own fundraising pages online. This way, you have a creative platform to communicate personal messages, keep your audience engaged with your travel plans, and collect the funding to help make this experience a possibility.
With a simplified payment system, participants collect funds right to their secure PayPal or WePay account. There is a solid team of experienced travelers and professionals at FundMyTravel, who are here to offer campaigners support, including insights for fundraising success. You can check out a few tips below before clicking the button above, to get started!
Just like travel, fundraising is about an exchange - so whether you send them post cards, create a video-diary, start a blog, or grow a photo gallery - make sure to share these things with your networks in exchange for their donations and online support! You can check out more unique and creative ideas on our Fundraising Toolkit.
Using Social Media, writing Personal Emails and sharing consistent Updates on your campaign are essential steps for reaching that fundraising goal. You can plan the most inspiring trip, upload a video about it, and complete your campaign with profile details, but it won't make a difference unless you tell everyone where to find it!
Be sure to thank any and everyone who contributes to your campaign either through funding, shares, or even just likes. Be sure to acknowledge your supporters through Facebook and Twitter shout-outs, fun and engaging videos, individual emails or messages, hand-written letters and they are more likely to spread the word on your campaign efforts.
