Internships Back to Job Listing


Washington (Remote) DC

Pact Inc. is seeking an Intern to assist the Sustainable Markets & Livelihoods (SML) Team to conduct research and gather robust data, information, and capture lessons learned from past Pact livelihoods projects. These projects cover a range of practice areas and geographies—predominately in Africa and Asia. Project activities include but are not limited to advancing financial literary, village savings and loan groups, and establishing economic empowerment pathways for employment and entrepreneurship for Adolescent Girls & Young Women (AGYW). Pact has a long program history of increasing economic strengthening  and empowerment for individuals and their families through increased access to necessary assets (social, economic, attitudinal, and educational) which result in reduced socioeconomic inequality and increased local development. This research will be used to inform US Missions about Pact’s livelihoods capabilities for future business and partnerships around the world.


This paid internship offers an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience with an international NGO and learn about economic strengthening and empowerment.  The Intern will work closely with the  Washington, D.C. Team remotely and will have the opportunity to interact with other Teams across Pact.

Key Responsibilities

Guided by the SML Senior Officer, the Livelihoods Intern will develop a document archive of past project reports. From that archive, the Intern will review reports and extract key statistics and data to demonstrate evidence of Pact’s significant impact. This evidence will be organized and summarized in Data Briefs that document Pact’s history of significant successful interventions resulting in economic empowerment through financial literacy, job creation, and increased income. 


The Livelihoods Intern will report directly to the SML Senior Officer.

Basic Requirements

  • Bachelor's Degree in relevant field preferred or equivalent.
  • Excellent research, writing, editing and communication skills.
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office, email, and internet applications.
  • Strong attention to detail and good organizational skills.
  • Ability to follow through on multiple tasks in a fast-paced environment.
  • Eager to learn and help promote best practices in international development to help others improve their livelihoods and communities.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Knowledge of work or internship experience with an international NGO preferred.
  • Knowledge of household economic strengthening programs that reduce the economic vulnerability of families and empower them to provide for the essential needs for the children they care for, rather than relying on external assistance.
