This summer, Konexio welcomed Madeline and Mara to the International Development Team as our interns! Both Madeline and Mara are pursuing master’s degrees at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). At Konexio, they got a close look into the world of NGOs working to bridge the digital skills gap for underserved communities.
We sat down with Madeline and Mara to discuss their journey, favorite projects, and reflections on the meaningful impact of Konexio's work. Madeline’s and Mara’s interview has been lightly edited for clarity and accuracy.
