Internship Program

At Digital Rights Foundation we believe that it is integral to engage with the youth, especially students, on contemporary issues and figuring out innovative solutions that this modern world presents us with.
The DRF Internship Programme runs every year from May to August. We aim to engage youth from different backgrounds and involve them in work, from policy and advocacy to communications. We encourage students from all over Pakistan, and from all universities to apply every year for our programme.
Our interns for 2020 are an accomplished batch of young people who are dedicated and committed to working towards an equal and safe internet for all. You can read about each one of them below and find out the projects they are working on.
