Internship details

Remote interns who would like to support NGOs & Social Development programs have scope to be placed with organizations that run out of Jaipur, Jodhpur, Gurgaon, Dharamshala and other cities. The focus areas of such NGOs and social sector organizations are typically based on women’s empowerment, community development, capacity building, and income generation for disadvantaged minority groups.

One example is a non-profit organization that works with disadvantaged women and girls in Rajasthan. The Trust operates to help promote self-esteem, financial independence, and education. The women who receive services from the non-profit face various levels of discrimination, based on caste, economic system, and gender. Another example is an NGO focused especially on literacy, which conducts education, empowerment and employment programs.

Interns can expect to assist with remote tasks such as assisting with reporting and case studies, public relations, reporting, fundraising activities, newsletter production, blog writing, and social media upkeep. Many NGO organizations may also have ongoing e-commerce initiatives, where local communities sell their products to help generate income. Remote internship tasks can therefore be related to the development of these initiatives, helping with the marketing and sales of products that have been manufactured by local women and communities.

Intern review: Naomi Roter - New York, USA

"My first week has been amazing. I have never done an internship before, much less a remote internship. It has been an adjustment, but everyone (my supervisor, other teachers, the program coordinator, etc.) has been very friendly and supportive which I greatly appreciate! In my work, I am given a lot of creative freedom and flexibility to create my own assignments. As someone who enjoys hands-on projects, this couldn't be better. My supervisor actively stays in touch with me and answers any questions I have if I am confused or need guidance. Our weekly check-ins have helped solidify the work that I'm doing and help me feel all the more connected and a part of my NGO. My most memorable moment thus far was being added to the 10th grade English WhatsApp group. It was announced that I was added and the kids sent voice memos saying, “Hello Naomi ma’am. My name is ..... My mother’s name is ..... My father’s name is .... My hobby is .....” It was really special for me to get such a warm welcome. It’s amazing how connected I feel to everyone from halfway across the world. I couldn’t ask for a better placement and way to spend the summer."
