Global Aid Direct assignments are exciting and rewarding, but living conditions can be difficult or at times dangerous. Many Global Aid Direct Interns work in remote, isolated duty stations. We encourage you to read and fully understand the conditions of Service and eligibility requirements for our internship program before you continue the application process.
Though Global Aid Direct assignments can be very rewarding, interns thus need to be prepared to be deployed to difficult places and they need to be able to adjust to fast-changing living and working circumstances. They need to be aware that they may not have a choice regarding their duty station (it is determined by operational requirements, not personal preferences); and that their final duty station may only be known after they have been recruited and have arrived on the ground.
As indicated above, the purpose of The Global Aid Direct internship program is not to lead to further employment with Global Aid Direct but, to complement an intern's studies. However, a number of interns, having completed their studies and met the necessary requirements, have gone on to further assignments with Global Aid Direct. About 15% of Global Aid Direct interns are offered additional opportunities to work with the organization
