People in Need, Czech Republic
„Humanitarian and Development Department of People in Need welcomes this new initiative as our work – maybe more than other – needs professional staff. By professional we mean having young people who understand and perceive development assistance as complex, layered and multidimensional as it is. Strong focus on competencies, managerial and technical skills within the sector requires well trained individuals and we believe GLODEP program can do the both – to shape it and to deliver it.“
People in Need (PIN) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization based on the ideas of humanism, freedom, equality and solidarity, and was established in 1992 by a group of war and foreign correspondents who were not satisfied with just bringing back information to the Czech Republic. In the twenty four years of its existence People in Need has become one of the biggest non-profit organization in Central Europe. Apart from humanitarian aid and human rights, it targets the field of education and helps people living in social exclusion. People in Need is a member of Alliance2015, a strategic network of seven European non-governmental organizations engaged in humanitarian assistance and development projects. This collaboration yields effective results, both in the target countries and in campaigns aimed at influencing the attitudes of politicians and the general public in Europe.
Possible content of the internship in the 4th semester: support for desk officers (administrative work, project support); research, text editing, editing webpages, translations; writing final reports and analysing the data from different sectors (education, nutrition, good governance, social support and inclusion, sustainable livelihood, humanitarian aid), working in financial department.
