2020 Internship Project Pathways Deck
About Global Livingston Institute (GLI): The Global Livingston Institute (GLI), is a research and education-based nonprofit organization committed to educating students and community leaders on innovative approaches to international development and empowering awareness, collaboration, conversations and personal growth. GLI is committed to improving communities globally.
When we took our first group of students to Uganda and Rwanda in 2009, we could have never imagined that we would host hundreds of travelers, partner with the people of Kabale, Uganda to form a unique hybrid of job creation, education, and community development at the Entusi Resort and Retreat Center on Lake Bunyonyi, or host the largest, free music festival in East Africa.
We continue to be inspired by the idea that if we bring the right people to the table, work collaboratively, and think big and differently, we can shift the dialogue surrounding international development and create lasting positive change to communities both at home and abroad.
That is where our interns come in!
