Persevere Until Something Happens (P.U.S.H.)
About: P.U.S.H. (Persevere Until Something Happens) is a community-based organization focused on the promotion of healthy habits in the community of Soweto, more particularly around AIDS/HIV. IIP interns will learn about community-based organization and health practices.

Intern Responsibilities: IIP interns will work on either or both of the following projects:

The conference is to focus on one or more of the areas addressed by the program (leadership, career, self-confidence, health) and must be tailored to the target beneficiaries, women in the townships of Soweto and Kliptown
  • Organization profile: the founder of the organization would like to map out her organization and assess what strategy she could use to revamp her business model, the interns will assist her in documenting all the programs and services offered by PUSH and create recommendations as to which direction the organization can take (ex: internal structure, website update, marketing operations, filter of services/programs)
Qualifications: IIP candidates with interests in in program development, consulting, communications and/or health are encouraged to apply.

Previous work experience (in the words of a past IIP intern):  I had such a rewarding, eye-opening time working at PUSH HIV/AIDS center in the townships of Johannesburg. The cultural immersion offered by the program allowed me to see problems from the lens of the local communities, and enabled me to put to action the bottom-up approaches of global health \\ Duties: created a program targeted at young women within the community; researched the community to understand the need in order to create a program suited for its beneficiaries; elaborated a budget and financial scenarios; prepared a pilot and training material as well as a manual of procedure.
