WE ARE THE SOLUTION
It is clear that there is a gap between students and Human Rights organizations that is in need of a bridge. And this is where INTERNaction comes in. For the past two years we have been bridging the gap by securing students with legal internship spots at local Human Rights NGOs worldwide: students get experience and NGOs get the qualified help they need. And this is only the beginning of what the next generation of human rights advocates can do.
Join us for a live chat with Roy Lee, coordinator of the legal consultancy Solon Law, about the realisation of the first world’s Green State of West Papua. With 25 years of experience, Roy will explain how his efforts to draft sustainable laws and policies can help address climate change, while accounting for social justice, traditional knowledges and human rights of indigenous people in developing countries.
This is also an informative event about the content of the two internship positions at Solon Law for summer 2022, which will open this Sunday 20th March 2022.

Conducting an internship at a human rights NGO in the Philippines was an enriching and humbling experience to say the least. Encouraging victims of sexual abuse and sex trafficking to fight for justice through legal means and seeing the success with your own eyes was the most fulfilling part of the whole experience. I believe that the unique system of interns being able to interact with the victims of such heinous crimes increases the persons’ understanding of the psychological/mental effects of abused children, which is oftentimes forgotten.
INTERNaction creates a bridge between human rights organisations and passionate students. Contact us to make your NGO internationally visible to the future generations.
