Internships at CWC (Concerned for Working Children)

Deadline: As soon as possible


NGO & Institutes


  • India


The Concerned for Working Children is a not-for-profit secular, democratic development agency based in Bengaluru, India. Active since the late 1970s, we were one of the first organisations in India to focus on working children and their needs. We have since become widely recognised as a world leader in children’s rights, particularly children’s right to self determination.


The Concerned for Working Children offers internship programmes for individuals of various disciplines from all over the world. These internships are tailor-made to match the qualifications and expertise of the applicant organisational requirements.

The programmes are usually three to six months in duration. However, this can vary according to the time available to the intern and the requirements of the project.

In addition to the assigned projects, interns also have the opportunity to take part in the programmes of CWC, including field programmes. This enables them to work closely with children and their communities within their socio-cultural contexts. Interns are also given the possibility to participate in capacity building programmes if there are vacancies on issues related to children’s rights, participation and advocacy.

Some possible internship responsibilities include: research, writing, process documentation, teaching, communication, organising, web design, etc.

Each internship is different and varies according to intern’s interest and education background as well as from current projects at CWC.

Some examples of recent intern projects are:

  • Completing a research paper analysing government policies towards migrant workers through a rights-based framework
  • Researching and writing leaflets presenting CWC’s position on child work and child labour for a mainstream audience
  • Assisting with teaching at our educational institute, Namma Nalanda Vidyapeetha
