At TIDE, interns will get an opportunity to work on
challenging problems, in grass root situation and with experts.  While the actual internship
topic will depend on the student’s interest and TIDE programs running at that time, we welcome
students from Engineering, Management, IT and Communications background.  Rural internships are
also open at our Women’s Technology Park.

TIDE is also open to receiving skilled volunteers under ”Employee Intern/sabbatical
program” on specific areas.

Extract of feedback from Mr. Gareth Westler who
interned at TIDE for 6 months from Acara Institute, University of Minnesota,

 “TIDE is a very well run and efficient NGO and I
felt as if I was able to have a significant impact on the project I helped with (Manini
dried foods). My time as an intern with TIDE is always the first experience I cite in job
interviews because of how hands-on and involved I was able to be in the project. I would
highly recommend TIDE as an organization with which to intern”
