I always feel uneasy about advertising unpaid internships which require a considerable commitment. I am making an exception as this internship with Street Child does look like a fantastic opportunity for someone wanting to start a career in international development to get some heavy duty field experience. It was sent to me by a recent King's War Studies grad who is just off to Nepal to manage this project.
