Seven Sisters Development Assistance


SeSTA's volunteer and internship program provides an opportunity to gain an insight into the development sector through hands-on grassroots work. SeSTA hosts interns from leading academic institutions across India and North-East and believe that they can have a large impact. Interns can work across our programme areas and have the opportunity to spend a significant amount of time in the field. The internship is meant for those seeking to gain work and life experience, and want to contribute something back to society Interns may also develop a custom project according to their interests and the needs of the organization.

From the point of view of the organization

  • Provide opportunities to the young to experience and feel inspired to contribute to the field of development
  • Build linkages with educational institutions
  • Enhance the potential pool of young people who may enter the field of development

From the point of view of the Intern


At the end of the Internship, the Intern would have:

  • Enhanced their appreciation of rural realities
  • Enhanced their appreciation of development challenges
  • Had opportunity to put into practice some aspects of their learning from their classrooms

Stage 3 weeks
Period of Exposure Intermediate
Basic 6 weeks

No stipend is offered for Internship. Candidates are expected to make their own arrangements for travel, board and lodge. SeSTA, however, will extend necessary assistance in helping locate a suitable place to stay and help the Intern settle in her/his location.

Each Intern will be attached to a ‘Field Friend’ who will act as the friend, philosopher, guide of the Intern and extend support facilitating the Intern’s stay and exploration.
