Internship Opportunities Summer 2018

We are offering exciting opportunities to be part of our team working at Care for Children.

About Us

Care for Children's vision is to see orphaned and abandoned children transformed by the opportunity to grow up in a family. We develop strategic partnerships with governments to help create a positive alternative to institutional care through local family-based care. Care for Children has been operating in China since 1998, helping a generation of orphaned and abandoned children to be placed into good, local families. Following the success of the China project, Care for Children has been invited by many Asian governments to replicate its programme. In 2012, Care for Children began work with Thailand where we now have a strong team of 11 staff. In 2017 we have started working with the government in Vietnam to roll out the same strategy and programme.

Internships

Internships at Care for Children are more than just a day job. They are a unique opportunity help support Children in Asia and, in turn, develop your skills, be challenged and contribute to the important work that we do. Interns are an essential part of the team and will play a vital role.

There are opportunities to participate in the internship programme in the UK, China, Thailand and Vietnam.
