What Volunteers Say:
"My internship with CFHI allowed me to see the many ins and outs of running a successful nonprofit organization and has helped confirm that I want to continue with global health and non-profit work as I move foward in my career. I couldn't have asked for a better summer internship as I loved each and every staff member and learned so much from them. The weekly brown bag lunches provided me with insight into other types of NGOs and the wonderful work they do. CFHI has inspired me and will continue to shape who I am." -Diane Masket (Pre-Med Student)
"My experiences with CFHI have helped shape me as an individual and redirect my career focus towards a role within public health. I am forever grateful to CFHI for shining light on that which I feel are some of the most important things in life." -Lyndsey Brahm (Prospective MSc International Health)
