Role, Responsibilities and Experience

Years after a 2015 earthquake, Nepal still needs help. As a Sustainable Agriculture Intern at this incredible national nonprofit, you’ll play a crucial role in helping Nepal rebuild.

You’ll help farmers and school children learn about safe and sustainable agricultural methods, like using local seeds and environmentally-friendly fertilizers. Your knowledge will be used to help the farmers implement basic business strategies, and even help them work toward an effective marketing plan.

Depending on your interests, you can also get involved with a waste and wastewater management program. If this seems like something you’d like to be a part of, please let our advisors know so we can work toward including the program within your internship.

As a result from your time in Nepal,  you’ll gain key communication and strategy skills. With our help, you’ll learn how to showcase your work on your resume and cover letter, making sure you’re completely ready for your career in sustainable development.

Above all, you’ll leave Nepal with a totally unique appreciation for its local culture, people, and beauty.
