MASUM’s internship or volunteer programme is a challenging and interesting experience for those committed to human rights and social justice in India. We offer an exciting opportunity to participate in movements for social change and welcome people from all fields to contribute to our initiatives. Interns and volunteers are an integral part of our dynamic team and we greatly value their efforts, creativity and contributions.

MASUM appreciates the support it receives from its National and International interns/volunteers. Our interns and volunteers go back with the commitment to contribute to the society through the experience they have gained while working with us.
---Some Major Acts---
Enthusiastic people committed to human rights, with willingness to interact with others, and increase their hands-on experience of human rights issues. They should have good research, writing and communications skills, as well as showing an ability to meet tight deadlines.
A minimum commitment of six weeks for international interns and four weeks for national interns who will work with an advocate or a social worker at our office. Interns are expected to show professionalism while performing their tasks and produce a report at the end of their assignment.
MASUM gives a wonderful opportunity for interns to meet their peers all over the world. They will explore the legal and social challenges people face in the human rights field in India and develop the skills to understand how the law and social activism can achieve practical benefits for ordinary people. Interns will build their capacity to conduct research related to MASUM’s initiatives, fact-finding, updating the website, writing articles and publications, organizing workshops and conferences and such-like. They might also be required to travel to other parts of West Bengal to conduct fact finding and research on human rights issues.
