Description

EduCARE India is an Indian NGO created in 1994 and working towards social and sustainable development. The NGO is implanted in several rural villages of Northern India with approximately 7 other interns in each village.

You should expect to implement projects that take food system needs of the village into consideration, whether through local food assessments, farmer surveys, or any other kind of qualitative or quantitative data collection. Getting creative past typical monoculture is key!

Depending on the location, several projects are currently ongoing such as: small scale greenhouse and tree/ayurveda plants nursery, work with local farmers to improve their productivity, security of farms against animals and higher income, work with organic/homemade fertilizer, pesticide solutions, soap nut tree nursery and planting for soap making.

This is an UNPAID internship but we offer various incentives: accommodation, SIM Card, work transportation and an amazing experience abroad surrounded by international people and local communities.
We currently have projects in Laddak, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, and Rajasthan.
