Celebrating women’s achievements
Every year on 8 March it’s International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. This year the organisers launched a campaign which asks you to #BeBoldForChange. We’ve therefore selected several interesting volunteering roles for you.
- The WONDER Foundation has two amazing internship opportunities for those interested in women’s rights. They’re searching for a Women in Francophone Africa Research Intern and a Women in DR Congo Communications Intern.
- LSE alum Bonnie Chiu founded Lensational, a global non-profit social enterprise that aims to empower women emotionally and economically through photography. Support their work by volunteering as a Social Media Editor, Web Content Editor, or Global Programmes Manager.
- If you’re interested in international development, research, and gender you might like to participate in Street Child’s volunteer programme in Sierra Leone to gain field experience whilst improving your research skills.
- Graduating this year and keen to get field experience? Check out Village Service Trust volunteer placement in India. The charity focuses on issues such as gender violence, caste discrimination, and minority rights (including those of Dalits, sex workers, people living with HIV, and transgender people)
- Lattitude is recruiting for a Malawi Community Development Worker. Volunteers work on programmes that support women’s empowerment, HIV and AIDS education programmes, engaging local youths in education and sustainable food production.
This is just a taster of the volunteering opportunities on LSE CareerHub. The LSE Volunteer Centre team adds several new volunteering opportunities per week, so don’t forget to check back regularly if you can’t find anything which matches your preference. You can also book an appointment to talk through what you’d like to do and get support on finding opportunities.
