Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, Hope

We are now looking for an international intern to contribute to our team for a period of 4-6 months (depending on availability) beginning from February 2021. We offer supervision, access to information, conducive working environment and the opportunity to work FOR EVERY CHILD.

Duties will include but not be limited to:

  • Retrieving and compilation of the children and relevant population indicators from Myanmar Census 2014, Intercensal Survey 2019, Myanmar Living Condition Survey 2017 and other relevant resources
  • Validating the extracted data with the published reports, ensuring consistency and documenting the sources
