Description

Enjoy a behind the scenes look at what is takes to run a foundation when you intern for 6 weeks to 3 months with the Walkabout Foundation in London! You will be exposed to multiple departments including but not limited to fundraising, development and social media. You will also have the opportunity to shadow Founder, Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster.

About Walkabout Foundation: Siblings Luis and Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster established Walkabout Foundation in August 2009 after a visit to their local YMCA in Connecticut led them to discover that Luis could not enter the building because it lacked a ramp and elevator. Luis suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident when he was 18 years old, which left him paralyzed from the chest down. Together, the siblings took action in their community and started Walkabout Foundation to promote awareness of paralysis and disabilities. Luis and Carolina launched the foundation with an 870 kilometer walk along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, and Luis became the first person in the history of Spain to cross the entire country using only the strength of his two arms.

Donated by: Walkabout Foundation
