It’s never too late to learn. And this is what we have experienced with our internship programme. Every year, we receive requests from students across the world wanting to be a part of our journey and contribute to our vision and mission. Our internship programmes are designed to ensure a mutually-beneficial experience for the intern and us.
Over the years, we have had students from diverse educational backgrounds — Science, Development Studies, Microfinance, Business, Arts, Medicine — intern with us. Every intern shares with us a pool of knowledge, skills, experience, and a desire to make a difference. Our interns get to have a hands-on experience of the challenges faced by the poor; interact with various stakeholders, and come up with innovative solutions to combat the multi-dimensional factors of poverty.
