NGO internship in Chengdu (China)



– I'm Reza I'm from the UK and I've just come to the end of my three-month internship with an NGO in with a Terre China so the company is actually an NGO it's a grassroots organization that works out in the rural areas surrounding trendy and worked on conservation and sustainability with rural communities my official role is ecological marketing so I'm in charge of promoting the organization through social media platforms such as Facebook so I document all the activities and all the events that the organization hosts but also I've been involved with a lot of other diverse tasks as well such as applying for grants writing academic reports communicating with external companies things like that I've learnt a lot but I think the one thing that comes to mind is I've been able to gain an insight into the working dynamics of an NGO within China because I didn't have a background in business before I came here it was a completely new completely new challenge but I've being able to see been lucky enough to see kind of how how it all works and from a logistical point of view but also from a kind of relations perspective for just the general kind of working dynamics of business NGOs I think I've had an incredibly positive experience with intern China for me it's been the ideal balance between being able to be independent and experiencing work overseas and gaining that valuable work experience but also having that knowledge of a support network if ever I needed it so if ever I had an issue or a concern I'd be able to go to into in China and they'd be able to sort out for me and that's definitely being the case for me and I think not just that but also the people in intern China everyone's so friendly everyone's so willing to not just treat you as an intern but treat you as a friend and it's been really nice to kind of be part of an it the intern China family even though briefly so I think I would say that if you are considering doing something like this definitely go for it
