Sample cover letter for Internship position at Education Parnterships Africa
GOT THE JOB? Yes
Why do you want to volunteer with EPAfrica? (300 words max)

I believe that however small, any attempt to help rural schools in Kenya or Uganda has an immense effect on the quality of education that attending students are able to enjoy.
Our modern world depends on interdependence and caring for each other and I feel that while this has been embraced within our western countries, developing countries are often left out.
I want to change this and be part of a world where every person is equal, which requires that everyone has the same opportunities.
Of course there is always the possibility to just donate money but I feel that EPAfrica gives me the opportunity to do something myself and independently. This gives me the feeling that I can myself change something, make a difference, and improve peoples lives.
