Education Nonprofit in Tajikistan - Virtual Full/Part-Time UNPAID Summer Fellowship
My name is Gulnora Gafurova and I am contacting you from NGO TajRupt. We are a nonprofit organization in Tajikistan developing critical thinking skills and pioneering civic engagement of the youth to tackle local issues. Our organization is funded by and partners with international donors including National Endowment for Democracy, UNICEF, and Open Society Foundations.
We are reaching out with an opportunity that might be of interest to your students. In the summer, we host a leadership fellowship program for graduate and undergraduate students from the US to intern at our organization - from curriculum development to project management. We have previously hosted fellows from Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Princeton University, and University of Chicago. While the fellowship is unpaid, it provides significant opportunities for fellows to drive real impact in a developing country nonprofit.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 global pandemic, we have moved our fellowship to a virtual format with possibilities for full-time or part-time engagement. We would greatly appreciate it if this opportunity could be forwarded to your students, and we would be more than happy to get in contact with any interested candidates.
