Interns are expected to fundraise to cover the costs of their project and to build a team of supporters. The FOCUS GBI Training fees, airfare, and visa funds (if applicable) will be sent to FOCUS International, while the remaining funds are for the estimated budget that will be managed by the intern to cover other project expenses such as housing, food, travel, and international travel insurance. The intern will finalize their budget after talking directly with the business partner. See the FOCUS Detailed Cost Structure for more information.
