We have a number of organisations looking for interns to assist in their vision of empowering, educating and uplifting women in South Africa. The organisations run various programmes and initiatives to realise their vision of empowering women by celebrating and promoting their achievements. They do this through socioeconomic rights-based and gender education, advocacy and lobbying, human rights case work, and support for the building of social movements.

Interns with at least an undergraduate degree (or equivalent work experience) and a strong background working with marginalised communities, especially women, would be preferred. Female applicants will take priority, however males with an exceptional understanding of gender issues will also be considered.

Candidate Requirements:

Can you assist this organisation in one of more of these areas?

Why You Should Consider a Women’s Empowerment Internship:

Women’s rights and advocacy in South Africa affects a multitude of other sectors such as health, education and community empowerment. Ultimately, gender inequalities impede the realisation of full human potential and drive the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual with an interest in female empowerment and equality, law and human rights issues.

How can this benefit you?

This placement will give you the opportunity to understand how NGOs operate and sustain themselves. You will have the ability to work in various facets of the organisation, making you ready to take on any professional career with confidence.
