Working with us

Volunteering at SHAPE entails tapping into your humanitarian side and focusing on developing the deserving communities of rural India, whilst networking with likeminded people from all over the world. Unlike larger organizations, we hire volunteers for actual administrative tasks which would offer them a more involved and hands-on experience. Additionally, employers constantly look for people who share their company’s social responsibility interests, so an opportunity working at SHAPE will always help you stand out during interviews.


If you are a student specializing in social work or simply someone interested in nonprofit careers, internships should form the foundation of your journey to your goals. We train interns from various institutions worldwide, digitally and on the field. Some of our former interns were from the following institutions: the University of Warwick, Harvard, University of Strathclyde, University of Kent, UC San Diego, University of Edinburgh, University of North Carolina, Tata Institute, and the University of Amsterdam. We offer the following nonprofit capacity-building internship opportunities throughout the year:

1. Governance and management: operations, office administration, project management & coordination
2. Project-Based: grant writing, monitoring & evaluation, and stakeholder communication
3. Organizational development: fundraising, public relations, and donor relationship building
4. Fieldwork: project implementation, beneficiary analysis, feasibility study, baseline study, impact evaluation and monitoring

At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on the 25th of September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which is built upon a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that aim on eradicating poverty, fighting inequality, and tackling climate change by the year 2030. This ambitious agenda recognizes the vitality of the work of volunteers in accomplishing such bold goals. Thus, here at SHAPE, we call upon charitable individuals to donate some of their time and effort to assist the organization in changing the world for the better through the 17 SDGs. Through volunteer work, you will establish yourself as a philanthropist. Through volunteer work, you will find your place and purpose in our large world. At SHAPE, you will also be able to situate yourself in our community – one founded upon selflessness, kindness, altruism, and goodwill. Join our team today, and make a difference.
