Two Human Rights Internships (part-time, paid)

In the context of the project Marginalised Persons as Human Rights Volunteers, we are happy to offer two paid Human Rights Internships, for the period 1 February to 31 December 2020.

The project acknowledges the challenges faced by marginalised groups in engaging in NGO activities and seeks to overcome these challenges by providing as broad a learning experience as possible.

The two Interns will be fully integrated into our team, participating in projects, activities, advocacy efforts, public initiatives and formulation of our strategies. Together with the Interns, we will also identify and support our Interns’ key learning needs, such as linguistic, IT, administrative/management or other.

What will we offer the 2 Human Rights Interns?

  • full inclusion in our team as an active member;
  • comprehensive mentoring throughout the internship;
  • total administrative support, including computer, internet, logistics, etc;
  • honorarium on the basis of committed hours;
  • Daily Transport Allowance
  • support (financial and other) for additional Learning Activities.

What will we require from the 2 Human Rights Interns?

  • minimum internship commitment of 20-25 hours per week;
  • full participation in and contribution to our NGO activities;
  • on-going discussions with the Mentor on goals and targets, progress, challenges, etc.
  • maintain an Internship Journal, to be published monthly as a blog post on our website and social media pages;
  • commitment to complete the supported additional Learning Activities.
