My name is Eric Githinji Charchi from Nairobi, Kenya. I had the privilege of being an international intern at Plant A Tree Today Foundation (PATT Foundation). I was an Web Developer / IT Technician from July 2010 – July 2011 (one year).
In that time I got to learn about the effects of deforestation on our environment and about the importance of living sustainably. Furthermore, I got to interact and work with people from all walks of life and cultures in the melting pot that is Bangkok, Thailand. Professionally I gained valuable experience in my areas of expertise. It was a once in a lifetime experience and I would advise anybody considering going to Thailand or South East Asia to sign up for the PATT Foundation’s Internship Programme

“Interning at Plant a Tree Today Foundation through AIESEC provided me with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a field that is tough to break into and learn about adapting to another working culture. Working at PATT has opened up my network and allowed me to meet with environmental professionals from around the world, while conducting meaningful work. It was a fantastic opportunity to be a part of and it has given me enduring memories.”
