The Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) under the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) and Africa project has established an Internship Program that provides valuable opportunities for young people to gain practical experience in the field of Earth Observation. The project is committed to promoting the involvement of women and youth in innovative approaches to Earth Observation, thus providing internships as a means to empower and nurture their skills.

A total of 16 (9 Males and 7 Females) interns from Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda, have been selected to participate in the Program for three months. This program provides them with a unique opportunity to enhance their skills in utilizing geospatial technologies, processing satellite imagery, and analyzing data for various applications. Currently, the initial four interns are actively contributing to the project's service areas, working towards the development of geospatial applications and services utilizing Earth Observation (EO) data and products. They have the privilege of collaborating with experienced professionals in the field of environmental monitoring, further enriching their learning experience.
