Nepal, a landlocked, multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, and multi-religious country is one of the best tourist destination places. It is a perfect place to enrich your perspective on social problems and values. For more information please visit www.welcomenepal.com. Your internship will be organized by the NGO that is partnering with the Global Network for Sustainable Development (GNSD) Please review the options presented below, and if you want to become one of the interns please contact: Yubika Shrestha (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rudeep Rajthala (email@example.com)
STRUCTURE OF THE INTERNSHIP
Since 2014 GNSD developed collaboration with numerous community organizations from which you may choose your internship placement (see the list below) based on your interest and educational background. It will be your choice how long your internship should be. Although typically lasts between two weeks and three months, some organizations may require that you will work with them longer.
When you decide to have an internship with us and after you choose your placement, we will assign you an internship coordinator, who will create together with you a specific program of your internship (please see below an example of such program.)
Our internships are not paid, so you will have to take financial responsibility for all relevant costs (accommodation, food, transportation, coordinator, insurance), as well as travel costs. The average cost of the internship (accommodation, food, transportation, cost of the coordinator) will be approximately $ 80 per day. Final cost will be determined after you create your individual program. It may differ depending on the location you choose, transportation costs, sightseeing, and optional cultural programs.
It will be your responsibility to organize funding that could cover if not whole at least a part of the cost of the internship. You may begin with your university, as some schools offer relevant resources, and we strongly recommend contacting your Study Abroad program. We may also help you in finding relevant funding sources, as there are numerous organizations offering stipends and scholarships for such purpose. Especially international organizations that are acting in Nepal, and support in developing countries implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. You will find the links to those organizations on our website
