2018 Summer Internship Program

We are pleased to announce our 2018 Summer Internship Program.  We are looking for people with a heart to come and serve with us from June 9th, 2018 to July 26th, 2018.

We have 9 positions available for our 2018 summer internship.  Interns will be living in a remote area of Swaziland in a dorm room at The Lodge on Project Canaan. There will be adult supervision, and safety will be of utmost importance to us. 


Each student must be completely committed to serving wherever and whenever they are needed, whether that means packing lunches, washing cars, helping at the baby home or washing dogs.  The days are long, work is never ending, and schedules change, so each student must be flexible.  The workers who live on the farm work six days per week with Sunday being a day of rest (which includes church, laundry, and catching up on personal things).  This will apply to the interns as well as they will be part of the farm community. Applicants must be very organized, computer literate (specifically excel) and a good team worker.

There are specific roles for which you can apply. We ask you to list the position you are applying for in order of your preference. Those positions are:

1 - Office Assistant who loves organizing files, working in an office environment and has computer skills (Excel and Word a must) will work at Khutsala Artisans along side our staff on spreadsheets, word documents and tracking/inventory.

3 - Education- Education students will work side-by-side with teachers and assistants under the direction of our Head Teacher, Amber VanWinkle.
