Sharekkna is an online service for rising specialists, startups, small business owners, CSOs, and NGOs, where they can share videos and stories about their work and their humanitarian initiatives. The main objective is to spread verified knowledge and bridge the awareness gap between the community and the presenters.
The main task for this internship is to contact specialists, startups and NGOs to get them on board. The Intern –communication will have in hand a list of contacts, emails, phone numbers, names, or social media profiles who have shown interest to join Sharekkna.
This internship is within the External Relations and Communications Section of Sharekkna. The intern reports directly to the Internship program.
Sharekkna Internship is done usually over 30 consecutive days. The intern will have a target to achieve at the end of every internship with a final report submission to track and follow up the work done. This may be exceptionally extended for a maximum period of two months. The internship certificate is awarded on the recommendation of the direct supervisor.

Costs and arrangements for travel, visas, accommodation and living expenses are the responsibility of interns or their sponsoring institutions.
