Volunteer / Intern

To volunteer or be an intern with the Girls Count initiative, you must be over 18 and be studying towards or have completed your degree in social sciences, development studies or other relevant discipline.

Though the internship can be long or short term – we advise a minimum duration of at least 3 to 6 months for it to be mutually beneficial.

If you are interested in making a difference and contributing to the ongoing activities and getting experience of working in the social development sector, this provides the perfect opportunity.

You will receive hands-on experience in carrying out the multifarious activities, involved in conducting a campaign. It could involve support in research, designing and conducting outreach and operational activities, communication and social media as well as exposure to the field. In all these, you will be mentored by experts in their respective fields.

How you’ll benefit

Interns will leave with a fairly good understanding of the various dimensions of diverse development issues, particularly those pertaining to the discrimination against women and girls. You will receive a letter of recommendation at the end of your internship, detailing the work you undertook and your contributions. The internship provides an excellent launch pad for a career in social development.
