What is it like to do an internship at ADE?

Ben, South Africa


“My traineeship in the ADE Rural Development, Agriculture and Environment Department gave me hands-on experience in the practice of evaluation. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the teams and discussing some of the more difficult questions, especially because I could learn a great deal from the ADE colleagues who were very welcoming and willing to share their knowledge from years of experience in evaluation and thematic topics.”

“My experience as intern in the impact evaluation department exceeded my expectations. The team was very welcoming and directly integrated me as a proper team member with own responsibilities. The atmosphere was respectful, encouraging, curious, understanding and kind. I was involved in very diverse projects and had my own part of the project I was responsible for in each of them. I was pushed out of my comfort zone and took away many learnings.”
