If you are planning a career in journalism – audio-visual, photographic or print – then VIN’s Journalism Program can help you develop your experience and your resume. This is a perfect opportunity for those planning a gap year or career break and contemplating or already following a career in journalism or print media.
VIN’s Journalism Program enables interns or volunteers to develop a portfolio of work in an international context. The program is conducted in Nepal in partnership with national daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly publications. You can work in Photo Journalism, Print Journalism, and Film and Documentary Making projects under Journalism program. If you are already a practicing journalist, Journalism volunteering will broaden your experience and show you a different way of working in journalism against the backdrop of a dramatic country faced with political and social challenges.
The opportunity not only allows you to produce professional work for a large publication but to gain an insight into how the publication is run. Whether you wish to work in print or celluloid you will gain invaluable experience as you traverse your career path.
VIN is a non-commercial, charitable organisation whose overriding mission is the empowerment of marginalised, rural communities in Nepal, with a particular focus on women and children. Since early 2007, we have been implementing our integrated community development plan in rural communities of outskirt of Kathmandu valley and have begun implementation in Okhaldhunga, the Everest region. By taking part in our Journalism Program you will be supporting our efforts in these communities, helping to promote our relationships with partner organisations and raising our visibility.
During your placement you will live with a Nepali host family, either in the working community or Kathmandu, dependent on your placement. Where ever you live you will become immersed in Nepali culture and language, which will enrich your experience and indirectly inform your work.Read moreApply now
