About

Social Impact Storytelling interns will be responsible for creating engaging and thought-provoking videos about Runa’s work in the Ecuadorian Amazon; highlighting the farmers we work with, the significance of guayusa to the Kichwa culture, and the dynamic Amazon jungle. They will develop brand awareness by creating digital online and web media.
