The Volunteer Action team at IDA FOUNDATION believes that the class has a pivotal role to play in shaping their future with global knowledge as an social activist- as people whose voice is heard, as people with access to the media, as people with the capacity to influence policies and build pressure towards positive government action for inclusive and necessary development.

Internships are a part of our Volunteer Action programme. Our interns come from diverse professional, experienced and educational backgrounds, and are seen as integral contributors to the movement to change the environment.

The underlying assumption in all our partnerships with interns is that the experience with IDA FOUNDATION will enable them to continue to participate in the struggle for the rights and need for the environment with various fields. In that sense, the internship is recognized as a beginning of a much longer relationship between IDA FOUNDATION and the intern, as well as the institution they represent.

At IDA FOUNDATION we believe Interns will be the Building Blocks for the Future Development of the Nation.

Internship aims to:

  • Provide an opportunity to interns, to put into practice and deepen their theoretical and practical knowledge of development issues.
  • Provide the interns the platform to develop a more grounded understanding with present scenario.
  • Give interns an opportunity to learn advocacy, researching, campaigning, networking skills and operational aspects of development work and lot more.
  • Provide opportunities to strengthen, scale up and build volunteer programmes.
  • Provide exposure for interns to take action and learn to deal with situations.
  • Enable them to transform into committed  after the internship program.
  • Built Confidence

Internship programs are designed to offer exposure to students and working professionals from varied academic and professional backgrounds. The design of an internship depends on both the interest and skill areas of the interns as well as requirements of IDA FOUNDATION.

This is an intensive engagement and no stipend is offered. The incidental costs pertaining to the assignment may be covered.

The options mentioned are not exhaustive and can be various; there is scope for innovation and experimentation with novel ideas. The intern can also make his personal interest and build a project to run successfully where management team can appreciate and give special recognition to such interns for their better future.
