Práctica en Unicef
Internship with UNICEF

The internship is at the local office of Unicef, in Alcalá de Henares. The main goals of this office are to collect funds, through events such as charity dinners, auctions, and sporting events (soccer matches, golf tournaments, etc.), to be invested in Unicef’s efforts in other parts of the world. These programs include educational outreach, gender equity initiatives, support for mothers and their children, and health education among others.
My job in the office varies depending upon the needs of a given day. It includes clerical work, educating myself about Unicef’s progress, helping to organize and then attend charity events. When members of the office participate in lectures or discussions, it is my job to record data concerning these events for the office archives. Also, to supplement the work assigned to me in the office. I would like to compile a small book of drawings and writing samples of local school children that the office can later sell, for the benefit of Unicef.
