Black International Fellow in Humanitarian Aid

Bahia de Banderas, Mexico

Aims of the Fellowship

The aim of my fellowship was to learn how a non-profit works from the inside.  First, I worked learned how to market an organization and learned how to brand a website.  My second month in Mexico I started, designed and ran my own English classes with teenagers in the alternative school and adults in the community.  These classes continued throughout my time there.  In my third month I helped plan events for PEACE.
