For those seeking entry-level practical and policy experience in a development setting, work with our passionate NGO team to help promote local issues, raise funds, campaign, and tell the world about the challenges and difficulties the children and families we support face on a daily basis. 

Work in policy, fund-raising, promotion or journalism, and learn about the complexities of development work while helping PWA to attract new support and deliver improved services.
