Italian Fundraising Internship at Street Child in London 5/07/2017
Street Child is looking for a fluent Italian speaker to commit to a 3 months, or longer, internship based in London.
Street Child is a UK charity working to protect vulnerable children and improve access to education in some of the poorest communities in the world. We work in Sierra Leone, Liberia, began a new project in Nepal in 2015 and are currently starting work in Nigeria. Our work combines counselling, family mediation, business support, school building, and teacher training. We were a key player in the Ebola crisis and led the global response for children orphaned by Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia. We deliver everything through local partners and since 2008 we have built/renovated over 300 schools and are now helping to educate over 40,000 young people.
At Street Child, we are very proud of our volunteerbased approach. We are a small and dynamic team and looking for someone to commit to a minimum of a 3 months internship, for 3-5 days a week in our London Office. The internship is unpaid, but travel expenses will be reimbursed and we are willing to consider flexible working arrangements (e.g. home and parttime working). The internship will provide valuable experience for someone looking to move into a career in development and/or fundraising.
