HEART’s Internship Program is for high school and college students who desire more knowledge and hands-on experience in ministry, by assisting our mothers and children in Kenya. Interns will connect with others, experience transformational ministry, find a calling, and grow closer to God.

Working alongside HEART Kenyan staff, interns benefit from hands-on opportunities to help accomplish important projects. With their God-given skills and talent, students will have the ability to participate in many programs, such as education, medical assistance, finance, hospitality, and more! Whether your passion is medicine or photography, HEART has a place for you.

Abigail Koskinen


Hey friends, my name is Abby Koskinen. I am currently a full-time student at Feather River College in Northern California. I love cows, fashion, art, and reading. I have a big heart for children, women, food, and traveling. I hadn't traveled outside the U.S. until November 2022 when I got the incredible opportunity to travel to Kenya for 2 weeks! During my stay there I got the chance to meet and serve mothers and their beautiful children. Together we shared many great meals. I think it's safe to say it filled my heart to the brim. I am overjoyed to say I get to go back as an intern for HEART and see all those faces again.  During my time there I also can't wait to explore the culture, meet new people and see old faces, help where I am needed most, and learn more about this world we all live in.
