Malala Fund interns depart the programme with strengthened practical skill sets, an expanded professional network and an enriched knowledge of the girls’ global education sector.

  • Providing desk-based support for research projects and briefing papers.
  • Providing project management support to advocacy initiatives and events.

In addition, every Malala Fund intern will be offered opportunities to work on specific projects based on the intern’s unique interest, talents and career aspirations, as well as: - Opportunities to contribute to Malala Fund’s online presence (e.g., creating a social media post or blog post). - Opportunities to attend special events (likely virtual) to observe and take notes. - An individualised resume help / job search coaching session with Malala Fund’s HR Manager. - Access to Malala Fund's e-learning portal, with over 1000 online courses.
