Hi everybody! My name is Rija Andriamifidy and I am an international master student from Madagascar in Global Change Ecology at the University of Bayreuth-Germany. Actually, I am looking for help for funding my internship about wildlife conservation in Paraguay.
Why do I look for funding? I have been selected for a huge opportunity to do an internship in a non-profit conservation organisation that protects habitats and species in Paraguay through scientific research and community outreach. I really want to get this opportunity because as a young motivated scientist, I strongly believe that it will be a huge step for my future career. Nowadays, some of you may know, it is really difficult to find a paid internship especially for a student like me. For this fact, I am aware that I can be honoured and glad that I ways accepted for a post of intern in a conservation project even if I have to fund myself for that. That is why I would like to try to get fund for this project because as I am a self-funded student here in Germany, it is really hard for me to be able to afford the fees for this internship. As I am planning to do an internship for a period of 3 months, I have to raise money for accommodation, food and also my flight from Germany to Paraguay (round about 4.125 Eur). Through this amazing experience, I could realise one of my big dream: doing research in Urban Howler Monkey and helping the Para La Tierra organisation for their conservation project.
It is already difficult for me to afford living here in Germany but I am really glad that I got the opportunity to continue my study here. I really hope that I can get help to fund my internship because I really want to do it and I know that I can bring my knowledge and my contribution to conserve the wildlife in Paraguayan forest.
So I hope that some of you can help me to built my future career and I already thanks in advance your generosity.
