WFP Saving Lives Changing Lives Internship

Start your humanitarian experience

The World Food Programme is always looking for talented, motivated and enthusiastic students from around the world. An internship at WFP is a great opportunity to acquire practical work experience while contributing to the goal of reaching Zero Hunger

Before you start your internship with WFP, you will be asked for a proof of medical insurance.

You will be responsible for organizing and paying for your travel and accommodation arrangements, however WFP will reimburse travel tickets for candidates who are nationals of developing countries and are pursuing their studies in their home country. It is your responsibility to organize a visa for your internship and cover related costs. WFP can support you with the required documents.

In a world of plenty, where enough food is produced to feed everyone on the planet, hunger should be a thing of the past. However, conflict, climate change, disasters, inequality and – most recently – the COVID-19 pandemic mean one in nine people globally is still going to bed hungry and famine looms for millions.

Powered by the passion, dedication and professionalism of their 20,000 staff worldwide, the World Food Programme (WFP) works in 117 countries and territories to bring life-saving food to people displaced by conflict and made destitute by disasters, and help individuals and communities find life-changing solutions to the multiple challenges they face in building better futures.

They work to enhance nutrition in women and children, support smallholder farmers in improving productivity and reducing losses, help countries and communities prepare for and cope with climate-related shocks, and boost human capital through school feeding programmes.

In conflict situations, they bring relief to exhausted populations and use food assistance to build pathways to peace and stability – work for which WFP was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020.

 Benefits

WFP’s internships normally last between two and eight months. WFP contributes to your internship with a stipend that is connected to the specific duty station. The maximum amount is US$1000 per month.
