YearOut Africa seeks to ensure the realization, respect, promotion and protection of the rights of all persons living in Ghana in accordance with Ghanaian law and international standards. We will increase human rights awareness and the adoption of a sustainable human rights culture, thereby enhancing democracy, good governance and accountability. 

YearOut Africa is founded on the belief that securing basic human rights in Ghana requires an effective frontline organisation equipped with essential advocacy and research skills, and legal expertise in dealing with individuals, systems and institutions whose activities result in human rights violations in the country.

The primary aim of YearOut Africa is to assist individuals, groups and communities whose fundamental human rights have been infringed upon to seek redress within the ambit of domestic and international legal framework.

We also undertake human rights advocacy and training through conferences, workshops and community-based campaigns, and conduct fact finding missions to address human rights violations. We monitor and evaluate compliance with human rights standards through transfer of skills and build the capacity of communities to protect their human rights.

Our work over the years has placed us among the most sought after human rights organizations for the provision and dissemination of information to policy makers and key stakeholders whilst enhancing and inculcating a human rights culture in public officers, state actors and communities. We envisage our work will continue to enhance good governance, accountability and transparency.

OUR APPROACH

YearOut Africa’s main focus areas revolved around Research, Advocacy and Access to Justice

Research

Research and fact-finding is an integral component of the YearOut Africa. The office undertakes research on varied levels of human rights issues, both in the field and from the desktop.

 

Advocacy

Many have said that the protection of human rights is possibly Ghana’s ‘most spectacular successes since the return of multiparty democracy in 1992.

Justice Delivery

Access to justice in Ghana continues to be hindered by a range of obstacles including religion, tradition and culture.

 

What Can I Expect from an Internship at YearOut Africa?

Expect to deal with lots of different tasks. You could find yourself working on cases, working on research projects or writing articles about current topics and human rights issues.  If you have a case of your own (or two or more) you will interview clients, write letters and notifications concerning the cases or have appointments, for example at court.  Staff in the office will help you see where your skills will best fit the tasks that are available. Don’t feel overwhelmed, everyone is always willing to help and give advice. If you have certain preferences on the tasks you want to do, feel free to share, as YearOut Africa is always willing to accommodate people’s special passions and interests.

What can this Internship offer me?

You are able to get involved in current legal issues, both through dealing directly with clients and researching broader cases. You will learn how to deal with clients and get an insight into everyday life in a legal office. While researching and writing articles you can improve your (legal) language skills or learn about human rights, the history of human rights in Ghana, the current human rights climate, or specific issues like remand prisoners or HIV/AIDS.  Throughout this practical experience, you will get to know many interesting people – from clients to staff and other interns. As an intern you are never alone, the big table corner marking the “intern place” in the office is almost always crowded. Make friends or travel companions and enjoy your stay in Ghana. It will be a unique experience.


International Law & Human Rights internships with YearOut Africa will give you the opportunity to work on legislation and make a difference in other people’s lives. You can become part of a vital resource by providing legal services to businesses, community organizations, or individuals. If you’re interested in a career in the notoriously competitive legal profession, an international law internship with a well-respected law firm abroad could be a valuable addition to your resume. The mission of YearOut Africa is to raise awareness about human rights, monitor vulnerable areas, and resolve human rights abuses.

Journée Typique

During the week, Monday to Friday, a typical day consists of Volunteer Work, Cultural & Learning Activities

The work is diverse and encompasses a wide range of social issues. Interns work in social justice, community outreach, legal and social education, poverty, and government accountability. Campaigns are used to educate and monitor both communities and individuals identified as vulnerable or in need of assistance. Additionally, interns resolve complaints and the specific issues victims have. This work often involves reference to international legal standards, various Ghanaian acts of Parliament, and the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana.

Activités de Loisir

YearOut Africa volunteers are in luck as their host country is unique and has a lot to offer. You can get your wildlife fix at Mole National Park, where you’ll glimpse the iconic animals which have made Africa famous. You’ll see 90 species of mammals that make their home there, including elephants, hippos, cheetahs, baboons, and antelope. Kakum National Park boasts a suspension bridge canopy walk, and Wli Waterfall offers great hiking with spectacular views. For water lovers, you will find a number of unspoiled beaches and world-class surfing.

Ghana is steeped in history, its impressive buildings a testament to a sad and tragic heritage tied to the brutal slave trade and architecture buffs will have their fill of a variety of structures. Be sure to visit Cape Coast Castle, an impressive white-washed seaside fort where you can learn about the poor slaves who were held there and then carried away from their homes on great ships.

Volunteers in Ghana will also have the chance to explore a vibrant colorful culture. Bustling markets like Kajetia with its 11,000 stalls, are a great place to meet locals and pick up a variety of goods such as the renowned and beautiful wax print Kente cloth fabrics. Ghana also offers delicious cuisine, and a wealth of restaurants, bars and grills to taste the local fare and experience a little nightlife while you are out and about.
