SOUL

Internship

As people whose voice is heard, who have access to social media, have the capacity to influence policies and build pressure for positive government action for inclusive development, we believe that the middle class have a pivotal role to play in shaping the discourse on tribal rights.

Internships are a part of our Volunteer Action program. Our interns come from diverse professional and educational backgrounds, and are seen as integral contributors to the movement for tribal rights. All our partnerships with interns entails that their experience with SOUL in the struggle for the rights of the tribes will enable them to be able to participate in future activities and movements regarding this. In that sense, the internship is recognized as a beginning of a much longer relationship between SOUL and the intern, as well as the institution they represent.
