Internship Opportunities at UNDP - Tanzania


UNCDF INTERNSHIP – MEDIA, DESIGN, AND COMMUNICATIONS

Background
The UN Capital Development Fund makes public and private finance work for the poor in the world’s 47 least developed countries (LDCs). UNCDF focuses on Africa and the poorest countries of Asia, with a special commitment to countries emerging from conflict or crisis. It provides seed capital – grants and loans – and technical support to help financial service providers reach more poor households and small businesses, and local governments finance the capital investments that will improve poor peoples’ lives.
Financial inclusion means universal access, at a reasonable cost, to a wide range of financial services, provided by a variety of sound and sustainable institutions. The range of financial services includes savings, short and long-term credit, leasing and factoring, mortgages, insurance, pensions, payments, local money transfers and international remittances. (http://www.uncdf.org/).

UNCDF’s Financial Inclusion Practice Area (FIPA) in Tanzania is in the process of creating a country-wide strategy for financial inclusion, focusing broadly on women’s economic empowerment and access to finance for rural populations. We are currently implementing a program in Nyarugusu Refugee Camp, which aims to increase access to finance for refugees through savings groups, financial education, and digital literacy.
