Volunteers / Interns

WGNRR has offices in Manila, Philippines and Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We have volunteering opportunities from time to time for those who are interested in working with us.

To support youth activists and to encourage an exchange of knowledge, WGNRR runs an internship programme at the Manila office. We bring members and allies with suitable experience to the office, where they function as Programme Associates, working as part of the WGNRR team.

Johanna is a lawyer from Austria who joined WGNRR in early 2011. During her studies in Vienna she worked for a law office specialised in criminal law, while her true passion and main interest have always been Human Rights, in particular Women's Rights. Therefore she took part in further trainings in Gender Studies at the University of Vienna and in 2007 moved to Stellenbosch, South Africa, to work for a local NGO called Lawyers for Human Rights. There she was involved in the "security for farmworkers" project.
Back home in Vienna she wrote her master thesis about women's rights in Iran started to work for the Women's Network of Amnesty International before moving to Manila in 2010.
