Girl Empowerment Internship in Hyderabad, India

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

This voluntary internship is a fantastic opportunity for someone interested in gender equality.

Adolescence marks a turning point for many girls in India, where decisions are starting to be made on their behalf, so that they lose control of their own future. Through a variety of programs and initiatives, your partner organisation is targeting school girls and boys to develop them as agents of change. Giving girls the right information, opening up the space to hear their voice, and encouraging them to think for themselves is at the core of these programs. The main focus evolves around three major concerns in a woman's life: health, life skills and marketable skills. As a result, girls about self-awareness and future planning, gain leadership and problem-solving skills, and improve their English proficiency.

The versatile and multi-faceted tasks you will perform as part of this internship will ensure that no two days are the same. For the first month, you will be based in a local school, supporting the implementation of camps and activities. You main responsibility will be teaching refresher English classes. The second part of the internship will be conducted from the partner's office in the city, where you support marketing and impact assessment efforts, developing your project management and business skills. With this experience under your belt, you will be able to create and take advantage of future opportunities and build your career in the long-term.

Highlights

Taking on this internship, you will be in a position where your skills can make a real difference. By supporting a local organisation working on the issue of gender equality and girl's empowerment, your efforts can have a long-lasting impact on the workings and achievements of the organisation. In return, this internship will be a great learning opportunity for you, where you can gain and expand project management and business skills, as well as try yourself at marketing and impact assessment. Full cultural immersion in the environment of a marginalised girl will give you unique insights and understandings - which will provide base for future personal and professional development.
