International Development Internship

An International Development internship abroad with EduCARE India in south Asia is a great option for those seeking to gain experience in the field and work with NGOs.

Unfortunately, like most of the regions in the world, the development is not balanced, and there are many disadvantaged communities with people living well below the poverty line. Our NGO projects in rural India aim to help develop some systems and solutions for poverty alleviation, improvement in livelihoods, and rural eco economy development through various development programs.

This internship is suitable for anyone with a strong interest in the field. It will also be useful for student and recent under-graduates and graduates of business studies or development studies looking to add practical experience to their resumes. When you apply, please let us know if you have any experience or a special interest in any particular area.

International Development Internship in India

The main aim of the International Development project is to identify micro-level Income Generation Initiatives (MIGIs) in impoverished families and women in villages. Advice and guidance in the form of skills training workshops.

International Development Internship Interns have the opportunity to get involved in some of the following areas:

  • General Administration
  • Marketing and communications
  • Social Entrepreneurship
  • Conducting and attending workshops
  • Business development
  • Microfinance
  • Sustainable Development

This International Development Internship is demanding and you will need to be highly motivated to get the most out of your placement. You will also need to be willing to participate in any task given to you, whether it is brainstorming the next campaign or proof reading a project proposal. If you are open and willing to help where needed, you will gain a well-rounded view of how international development / localised sustainable development NGO work at grassroot level and the challenges they face on a daily basis.

Our internship is a professional work, and interns are expected to be punctual, professional, and hard-working. You will be required to work an average of 35-40 hours per week, usually Saturday to Wednesday. When you arrive at work on your first week, you will be introduced to COM team and centre team who will be able to advise and support you during your internship, and of course we are always available to support you throughout your stay.

Always remember that the more questions you ask, and the more you show you are willing to learn, the more time your colleagues will spend with you. If you complete every task to the best of your ability, you are certain to return home having gained valuable practical experience for your resume, while also having supported a worthwhile program.
