by Emma Wells, Spring Social Media Intern
I first heard about MADE IN THE STREETS over the summer while attending Campus for Christ at Auburn University. During the conference, many organizations and colleges had booths set up. The members of MITS were giving out bracelets during a break. They were so cute, so I had to get one. While filling out an information card, I learned a little bit about internships offered for college students. Later that afternoon, a short video was played explaining the work MITS did in Kenya and their mission. I saw how children's lives were being changed, and I knew that was something I wanted to be a part of. As a social media intern, I am not in direct contact with the children, but I still can make an impact. I do that by sharing our story of how we are changing lives and showing the love of Christ to people all over the world.
MADE IN THE STREETS is very easy to get involved in. They offer many different internships to match your level of adventure. I knew traveling to Kenya would not be a good step at this point in my life, so I looked for a way to get involved at home. I encourage everyone to get involved somehow. For some people that might be applying for an internship but for others that might just be making a donation to help support our work. No matter what you choose, you will be affecting the children we work with.
When you do this for 20 years, you're bound to pick up a few stories and lessons along the way. Thoughts, impressions, news, and highlights from our staff, visitors, donors, students and alumni.
