This summer break, an interesting option would be to do an internship in an NGO. For anyone interested in non-profitable work in the future like fundraising, environmental conservation and so on, an NGO internship is a must as it provides you with the right experience and exposure. Keeping this in in mind, DU Beat got in touch with five NGOs any DU student can intern with, along with specific application guidelines for the same.
