The United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Windhoek is pleased to congratulate and bid farewell to its outgoing team of interns who joined the agency’s internship programme for Communications, education and development at the beginning of this year.
The graduate programme was established to provide practical and pro-active training to grandaunts as well as recent graduates looking to sharpen their skills for the employment industry.
Interns actively participated in the aiding of communicating key messages of the agency as well as conducting research, facilitating various outreach programs, strengthening social media campaigns, etc.
UNIC Windhoek internship programme exposed students to a network of people in a more controlled and stable environment. Proper training, assignments, and duties were given without the added pressure.
These young novices have done exceptionally well, their efforts and impeccable commitment to deliver will only advance their skill sets for the future. The students stated: “The experiences we went through shaped us, encouraged personal development, but also greater understanding of one self. And being an intern at the Centre gave us more opportunities to build connections with UN professionals that can be very beneficial for our future career.”
On behalf of the entire UNIC Windhoek team, we wish to express appreciation to the outgoing interns and cast our best wishes towards their future endeavours. Thank you for your support and willingness to go the extra mile in executing the work of the UN in Namibia.
