Results & Indicators

Expected Results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: i) increased awareness to female and male Canadian youth of the equal possibility of working in international development; ii) enhanced equal employability of female and male IYIP interns in Canada and in the field of international development; iii) improved capacity of female and male IYIP interns to contribute to international development in a gender sensitive way.

Achieved Results

Results achieved as of the end of the project (March 2014) include: Africa Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF) Canada in partnership with AMREF offices in East Africa coordinated ten internships in four countries (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda). The interns assisted local partners with initiatives contributing to AMREF’s mandate of improved health in Africa. The intern’s work included the development of research manuscripts, the design of health education curricula, monitoring and evaluation of current programming and participating in data and knowledge management activities. The new skills and abilities acquired by the interns contributed to increase their employability.
