Philipp Fugger 

Personal Assistant of the DESERT FOOD founder, from Munich - Germany

Working as the personal assistant of the DESERT FOOD founder I had no previous experience with development work. Yet when I was asked to join the DESERT FOOD project it was a great opportunity to apply my previously attained business and entrepreneurial skills in a development context: I have to say it was very interesting yet also really challenging. I can strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to see the broader picture of what poverty, climate change and cultural obstacles in a development context really mean.


Theresa Reisch 
Business Development Intern, from Zurich - Switzerland 

Working at DESERT FOOD was a great professional experience. Passionate about sustainable development, this position was a valuable opportunity to gain on the ground project management experiences in a developing country context. I was given an exceptional amount of responsibility and independence, traveled through vast parts of Northern Kenya and met with high profile stakeholders. I thus highly recommend an internship at DESERT FOOD to any keen learner who enjoys engaging with complex climate change and development-related challenges.
