The internship is located at the South African office of a South African - German network of NGOs. As a non-profit organization it stands for the exchange between South Africa and Germany and offers a platform for different cooperations and long-lasting partnerships. Most member organizations are social organizations, community organizations or environmental projects. The network started in 1997 as a merger of individuals and organizations working in both countries. In 2004 it was officially established as an association and registered as e.V. (eingetragener Verein) in Germany and NPO (non-profit organisation) in South Africa. The participating organisations work on their own individual projects. However in recent years, as members of a common platform, they have experienced success that they would not have achieved as single organizations.

The organization has regional membership structures in both countries. In Germany, there are members of the association nationwide (in Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony-Anhalt, etc...). Likewise, members in South Africa are based in different regions, most notably in Western Cape, Gauteng and Eastern Cape. The network is involved in exchange programmes of interns, volunteers and professionals. 

 Internship Description: The South Africa office of the organization requires a dedicated marketing specialist that will be drafting the strategic marketing plan for the organization. This marketing plan will focus on gaining new members across the country and keeping the current members interested and engaged in the network.
