FIIDI offers intern and volunteer placement opportunities for both local and international candidates from various academic and professional backgrounds, to support our work in any of our country programs in Burkina Faso, Canada (locals only) and Sierra Leone. This is particularly good opportunity for those seeking a future career in human rights or development to gain on the ground experience working for a locally based NGO.
If you would like to intern or volunteer with us, please e-mail your C.V. with a one-page cover letter detailing why you want to work with FIIDI and how your skills and interests make you a suitable candidate. Interns and volunteers are required to commit a small monthly fee that caters for expenses of daily office facilities, and support for our projects. This is payable before arrival in Burkina Faso or Sierra Leone and you can wire the money directly to our bank account or through Western Union and or Money Gram. Kindly inquire directly about the Internship program costs. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any financial assistance to interns at this time.
Candidates may apply at any time, but you stand the best chance if you apply between one and two months before you would like to start. For detailed information on our Internship and Volunteer Opportunities please click FIIDI Internship Guide and Internship & Volunteer Brochure.
