Statements from former interns:

“It has been a rewarding and positive experience to be an intern at HopeNow. During the last six months of the internship I have experienced a lot of various areas of the work of a NGO. Also I acquired a lot of knowledge on the phenomenon of human trafficking. HopeNow is a dynamic and unique organization, which makes a direct difference to trafficked people in Denmark – and as an intern it is cool to be where things happens. During the internship I did not only get a thorough insight into the legal and institutional system which surrounds human trafficking but I also got the opportunity to closely follow the people that HopeNow works with and for.” (Sofie, 2012, Roskilde University: International development and Culture and encounter).

 

“As an intern at HopeNow I have faced a lot of different tasks, people and situations. All things considered my 5 months as an intern at HopeNow has been incredible rewarding and informative. I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of tasks, some of which I have handled on my own. This has sometimes been challenging but it has given me the ability to be willing to adapt and the opportunity to develop my personal set of skills. I have gotten insight in how a NGO functions. Even if I sometimes have faced a lot of stressful, confusing and challenging situations in the workplace, I have also experienced many positive, happy and funny moments, where the results of hard work shows.  Last but not least the social work environment meant a lot for my motivation because of the dedication and the great team spirit from everybody.” (Atia, 2014, Roskilde University: Culture and encounter and Communication)
