Work overseas in the exciting field of humanitarian relief!


The mission of International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) is to respond to the call of our Lord Jesus Christ to minister to people in need throughout the world, sharing with them God’s gifts of food, shelter, economic self-sufficiency and hope.

IOCC Internship Program in 2008

The IOCC Internship Program offers a unique opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the operations of an international humanitarian aid organization.

In 2008, IOCC is offering one 3-month internship in Ethiopia. IOCC internships require a 10 to 12 week full-time commitment. Internship assignments are based on the needs of a particular field office. The proposed internship locations may change due to programmatic changes in the field that cannot always be predicted months ahead.

The intern will receive a stipend of $500 per month. IOCC will also cover the following expenses: visas and related costs, round trip airfare, lodging, and workmen’s compensation while overseas.

IOCC has been supporting projects in Ethiopia since 2001. The primary goal of IOCC in Ethiopia is to alleviate human suffering through systematic research and long-term solutions based on collaboration with our local partners, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and its Development Commission. IOCC seeks to assist all Ethiopians in need through programs such as HIV/AIDS awareness and education, food security, civil society building, training, and capacity development. Currently IOCC’s program in Ethiopia is funded by USAID.
