Bhajan Global Impact Foundation (BGIF) Internship Programme

About BGIF
Bhajan Global Impact Foundation (BGIF) is a public charitable trust created to drive transformative change through high impact projects and evidence-based policy knowledge-sharing. We seek to create an ecosystem of knowledge, innovation, and impact by convening subject matter experts, policy analysts, social change makers, government bodies, corporates, philanthropists, and multilateral organisations.

The Foundation has been founded under the guidance of the Bishnoi family who have devoted their lives to public service in India, particularly in the state of Haryana.

BGIF wishes to engage with young, passionate, and committed people to help us achieve our Vision, Mission, and Objectives. In this vein, we have introduced the BGIF Internship Programme to provide young people with the opportunity to engage meaningfully with public policy and the development sector.

Based on the applicant’s preference, Interns shall work on one or more of the following eight Focus Areas of BGIF:

       We at BGIF are committed to the cause of Gender Equality and Women Empowerment as underlying themes across all Focus Areas. Applicants are welcome to apply under this area of interest during their Internship.

Why work with us?
BGIF offers Interns a unique experience of engaging with high level thought leaders, social change makers, government officials, corporate leaders, non-profits as well as citizens from diverse social, economic, and cultural backgrounds. Interns will have the opportunity to acquire and practice skills in business development, non-profit strategy, policy making and analysis, digital media, and project management.

The BGIF Internship programme also intends to familiarise Interns with the pressing social and economic challenges in Haryana, through a four-day Rural Immersion Programme in Hisar and other parts of Haryana.
