Interning at Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) in Cape Coast, Ghana was an excellent experience – not only was it an invaluable opportunity to learn more about the focus and mandates of human rights organisations across West African countries, but the programme itself also provided an immense amount of scope for individual research and evaluation. The programme gave me the necessary flexibility to thoroughly enjoy life in Ghana, encouraging backpacking outings to the Eastern and Northern regions of the country with friends from the ACIPP house.
This summer was definitely one of – if not the – best summer of my life, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to further their field of interest in a social context completely different to their own.
