Nnodim spends internship researching and working in the field of public health

During his summer internship in Tanzania, I.K. Nnodim ’19, a psychology major from Greenville,
S.C., worked with the TATU Project, an NGO focused on equitable, sustainable global
development. Assigned to the community of Msitu wa Tembo, Nnodim addressed healthy
behaviors using sports as a vehicle for learning. He also conducted research in specific problem
areas including epilepsy and trachoma.

The Tanzania internship program is a 10-week experience in which students live and work in Moshi, Tanzania. The students are placed in internships based on their interests and career goals as well as the current needs of local employers. Wofford College has developed partnerships with three organizations in Moshi: TATU Project, Anza and Globalbike. These organizations focus primarily on women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship.

The Wofford Tanzania summer internship program is in its second year. With each of the internship partners, students split their time between working in an office environment and working in remote villages. Applications for summer 2019 will be available beginning in October 2018. Interested students should contact The Space in the Mungo Center for additional information.
