This student humanitarian internship aims to contribute to the education and emancipation of women, which are important levers of development in disadvantaged countries. In Nepal, many young girls still do not have access to education, which is a real obstacle to improving the standard of living of these communities. Thus, supporting women and contributing to their emancipation is vital to solving the social problems faced by the local population. As with all humanitarian internship programs, the project in Nepal allows you to gain university credits while making a positive and lasting impact on the local community.
In a country where women's rights are still subordinate to men's, we are trying to move attitudes away from this discrimination. In collaboration with our partner organisation, we make this possible by working with these women who dream of independence. We work with mothers and daughters in schools in rural areas, but also with female victims of human trafficking, or women who have left rural areas in search of professional or educational opportunities.
We provide on-the-ground English and maths classes, as well as CV writing support to give these women a solid foundation for their job search. We also help them develop new skills in sewing or handicrafts in the hope of engendering independence and generating income.
Your role in the partner organisation will be to help women and girls develop several types of skills. From Monday to Friday you will be in charge of different tasks:
- Teaching English so that young women can engage in conversations and gain confidence.
- Providing IT and sewing classes through fun and interactive workshops.
- Contributing to the long-term objective of setting up an income-generating activity so that these women become self-sufficient.
- Organising illness prevention workshops and information campaigns on women's rights.
This internship will allow you to develop your leadership skills, which will be essential for the success of this volunteer mission as well as for your future professional experiences. You will get exclusive team management training approved by the internationally recognised Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). During this humanitarian student internship you will be asked to develop and implement your own initiatives to help the emancipation of women in Nepal.
These projects are also carried out in collaboration with national governments.
All projects follow medium and long term objectives defined with local partners and respecting the United Nations sustainable development goals.
As a non-profit organisation, our volunteer projects are completely transparent. Volunteer contributions are used to cover project planning (reconnaissance, team recruitment and logistical support), direct field costs (transportation, lodging, staff meals) and finally to support the project itself. Without the physical and financial help of volunteers, this project would not have been possible.
