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