Women LEAD empowers young women to take key leadership positions alongside men in Nepal. Women LEAD is the first and only leadership development organization for young women in Kathmandu, Nepal. Since 2011, we’ve empowered more than 400 female high school students with the skills, support and opportunities to become leaders in their schools, communities and nation.
Women LEAD is looking for an excellent writer who is passionate about young women changing the world and wants to get international development experience. The Development Intern will join our team in Kathmandu for the summer (at least two months) and have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on our organizational growth and sustainability. We’re looking for self-motivated students/recent graduates who want to work in a fun, collaborative, and fast-paced environment; bring their own strengths and creativity to the position; and dive into our work on young women’s leadership development.
S/he will fulfill an important role as we pursue grants and local funding for our projects and administration, providing essential research for the development of our grant prospecting and application strategy. The intern will assist the US Executive Director with grant prospecting and writing while gaining on-the-ground experience in fundraising and grassroots development. S/he will work closely with our staff and participants in Nepal to collect and compile information on our qualitative and quantitative impact and create content to be used for future grants. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about fundraising strategies and grant writing for a small nonprofit.
Deadline is February 15th. Please click here for more information.
