Working with OUA students has been great and inspirational for all of us at Oxfam Italia’s education office.
One of the most sought-after internship venues for OUA students is Oxfam. It is an international humanitarian association working in 99 countries to find lasting solutions to poverty, injustice and sustainable development.
Students love working in the Arezzo office because they can learn how campaigns are set up, improve their understanding of humanitarian issues, organize events and, last but not least, meet Claudia.
She is the Oxfam supervisor and has made a great impact on all of the previous students who have chosen this internship. Here what she says about collaborating with us: “Working with OUA students has been great and inspirational for all of us at Oxfam Italia’s education office. The different competences of the students, their talents and the visions they have brought have all helped us increase the impact of our programs at local, national, regional or international levels. We are really pleased that OUA students have decided to embrace the Oxfam’s global internship proposal and we count on OUA to keep making a difference within the Arezzo community and beyond. Together we can fight poverty!”.
The whole experience has been incredibly valuable so far, and the relationship with OUA keeps being a crucial point for our academic offer.
The Aliotti School teaches to kids from Kindergarten to the whole cycle of Italian Elementary School. One of our main feature is the opportunity to study English with a mother tongue. Working with OUA Students at Aliotti Primary School has been a wonderful experience for the kids and for the school. Some of the OUA students who have interned here have gained professional skills for their future path. For example our current OUA student (Victoria) is studying to be a teacher one day and I can claim she already is.
In our school she has had the possibility to teach English to the kids, together with me and other teachers, and she has showed an incredible passionate attitude, devoted and competent. The kids have been calling her "teacher Victoria" and I think of her as a precious colleague, not as an intern.
The whole experience has been inspirational and incredibly valuable so far, and the relationship with the University of Oklahoma keeps being a crucial point for our academic school offer.
