Taking on a variety of tasks and responsibilities, including managing the organization’s website and social media channels, crafting impactful online campaigns, finding creative ways to engage with audiences and expand the donor base, as well as assisting with fundraising strategies, you’ll develop a strong and diverse portfolio of work. Not only will you develop a deep understanding of the nonprofit sector, but you’ll also play an integral part in changing the social landscape for young women in South Africa who are, and have been, subjected to gender inequality.

Learning objectives:

  • Gain practical experience in how to manage an NGO to spread key messages and engage audiences
  • Build a wealth of expertise in planning and delivering impactful digital campaigns to drive donor action
  • Work independently as well as part of a team for a cause you’re passionate about
  • Understand the unique experiences of the organization’s target groups to help share their stories in the most meaningful way

The Organization for Young Women’s Dignity (TOFYWD) is a nonprofit based in South Africa committed to empowering and supporting young women aged between 15 and 35 years. They recognize the detrimental impact that issues such as gender-based violence, HIV/AIDS are having on many of the country’s young females, so they are committed to building a society where these young women are valued and treated with respect.

Their main goal is to provide in and out-of-school adolescent girls and young women with community services targeted toward reducing the impact of these key issues. Their initiatives focus on combating gender-based violence (GBV), promoting Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), and addressing the issue of menstrual poverty. They deliver for example HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention sessions, providing 24-hour counseling and crisis intervention, facilitating peer-to-peer support groups and youth empowerment programs, as well as running sanitary wear drives. The organization works to destigmatize these topics, raise awareness, as well as to support young women to stay in school.


As an intern, you’ll work relatively independently, with guidance and support from the organization’s volunteer managers and Head of Department. You’ll take on an interesting variety of tasks. This opportunity will allow you to think creatively, using your communication skills to share inspirational stories of the young women the organization supports and to drive positive action from audiences.
