This virtual human rights internship, hosted out of Morocco, is a chance to collaborate with NGOs supporting disadvantaged women and migrants. You’ll collaborate across a range of tasks to raise awareness and support fundraising, while contributing to the human rights advancement of disadvantaged communities. If you have an interest in human rights and international law, you can gain career-relevant international experience and make a meaningful difference.

Virtual NGO interns cooperate with the local teams and educate communities on themes such as gender equality, child and youth development, and health and wellbeing. Interns can assist by teaching practical skills, supporting local business ventures, and even teaching English online, to open up career paths. These NGOs are the only ones working in this field in Morocco, so interns can make genuine contributions and gain hands-on experience working with NGOs in Africa.

Participants on this human rights internships out of Morocco may also produce content for the NGO websites, contribute to funding proposals, develop grant applications, and help to teach disadvantaged women, boosting their skills, professional prospects and self confidence.

In all cases, interns should expect that the initial phase of their remote internship will focus on gaining some introductory knowledge. You may start by gaining an understanding or overview of what you can build upon, develop, learn, and contribute. Ensure that you ask questions and provide feedback during the introductory period, so that your supervisor understands how you’re progressing. This will help them to better understand important details, such as how quickly you learn, what you find challenging, what you find interesting, etc.

Understand and expect that individual internship experiences vary. Therefore, if you’re at a more introductory level, you should reasonably expect a more introductory internship. Likewise, if you’re interning for a shorter duration, you will have a different experience from someone who is interning for a longer duration. Placement preferences are considered but always subject to availability.

What recent interns said about their experience

SJ
Shrenya Jain
July 2023

During my virtual internship, I had the incredible opportunity to work on a project that focused on the topic "The Need for Comprehensive Sexual Education in the Moroccan Context." This internship not only allowed me to contribute to an important societal issue but also greatly enriched my personal and professional development. One of the aspects I enjoyed the most about the internship was the chance to collaborate with my supervisor. Despite the remote nature of the internship, we fostered a strong sense of camaraderie through regular availability of voice calls, instant messaging, and collaborative document sharing. Through extensive research, data analysis, and policy analysis, I delved into the challenges and gaps in the current sexual education system in Morocco. I examined the cultural, social, and legal aspects that impact the implementation of comprehensive sexual education and highlighted its importance in promoting healthy relationships, preventing gender-based violence, and empowering young individuals to make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health.
