CHRDI is looking for interns/volunteers for placements from 12 weeks to 18months. We

welcome applications from the following areas: graduates in international relations, law,

development studies, political science and /or any other relevant qualification for a Human

Rights and Development based organization in Africa.

 Campaign for Human Rights and Development International (CHRDI) is a development and

human rights organization that utilizes rights based and voice and accountability approaches to

bridge the justice and social equity gaps. Based in Sierra Leone, we envision a world in which all

people enjoy their human rights and live with dignity, equality, and justice.

We can make the world a better place by making violence and discrimination against women,

children, youths and people with disabilities unacceptable.

 The 4 core principles of CHRDI are non-discrimination, participation, transparency and

accountability. 

 One of CHRDI’s primary objectives is to ensure the institutionalization of human rights,

democracy and good governance tenets in Sierra Leone. 

 CHRDI is also committed to ensuring that state actors and duty bearing institutions are aware

of their obligations to respect the human rights of citizens and in the event that they violate

such rights, they are held accountable and victims have access to appropriate remedies.

 CHRDI is in Special Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council

(ECOSOS) and accredited to many UN Agencies.

 

We are looking for student interns, volunteers and university collaborators who can help us write

grant proposals and run fundraising initiatives, human rights education and our Access to

justice programme for rural women and girls (Legal Access to Rural Women and Girls) to work

alongside with our dedicated staff team in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Volunteering improves the

lives of other people around and is very rewarding. Volunteerism is a natural and fundamental

part of most societies. Volunteerism plays a role in capacity development by promoting peoples;

involvement in developing their own societies. If you require further information about the

placements do feel free to visit or contact us at www.chrdint.org or chrdioffcial@gmail.com or
