WYA Africa: Meet our Interns

With the last quarter of 2014 already underway, we are happy to introduce our interns for the third and last batch of this year.

We will host the fifth edition of the Africa Emerging Leaders Conference on Thursday 09 and Friday 10 October 2014, in Strathmore University, Nairobi, Kenya. Be sure to apply and be a part of young Africans who want to shape the future we want, by understanding better the fundamental importance of the family, in light of the Economic Development we all want. You cannot afford to miss this opportunity to be a part of young people from all over Africa who will come and share ideas, in addition to learn deeper ideas that form the work of the World Youth Alliance, in light of the trends in the family today.

The past months have seen us develop deeper partnerships with high schools, universities and young professionals out of university mostly in Kenya. Track A Training remains the best way to become formed in the ideas we cherish at WYA. The previous months have also seen the friendly soccer match at Nairobi’s Central Park, the Film Screenings of Schilndler’s List and the Shawshank Redemption and also having discussions on topical issues and many trips and engagements to high schools and universities.

On our Facebook page and Twitter accounts, we always announce our monthly events. In September 2014, we are scheduled to host a Meet and Greet Barbecue at our offices on Saturday 27 September 2014.

Meet our Interns

We have three very talented interns for our third and last batch. We are proud and honoured to have them with us.

Hello! I’m Kambugu Elton from Uganda; I recently finished my bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Makerere University, Kampala. I am waiting to graduate in January next year. My interests are reading, socializing and making friends. I am proud to be a part of WYA, and I look forward to changing the world through the foundational principles of dignity, solidarity and culture that WYA emphasizes.


My name is Joan Gichomo, a former student at Strathmore University, in Nairobi Kenya. I graduated this year with a Bachelors degree in Commerce majoring in Marketing. I enjoyed working with the Community Outreach Program (COP) at the university where I participated in many outreach programs in and out of Nairobi. My hobbies include; ballroom dancing, blogging, listening to music and travelling to new places. I am currently an intern at World Youth Alliance Africa and I am very excited to be here. 

Hey, my name is Alexander Wright, currently in my last semester at the United States International University in Nairobi, majoring in International Relations with a concentration in peace and conflict studies. I am an intern at World Youth Alliance- Africa. I’ve been here a few days now and I love the atmosphere and excitement that comes along with being an intern at WYA. I love sports especially basketball and believe that through sports we can have peace and unity amongst all nations.
