The United Nations Foundation links the UN’s work with others around the world, mobilizing the energy and expertise of business and non-governmental organizations to help the UN tackle issues including climate change, global health, peace and security, women’s empowerment, poverty eradication, energy access, and U.S.-UN relations.
Nothing But Nets is an innovative grassroots campaign that fights malaria, which claims the life of a child every two minutes. Our campaign goals are to raise critical funds to send life-saving insecticide treated bed nets to families and to advocate for malaria prevention programs like the President’s Malaria Initiative and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. This Spring, the campaign will hold our annual Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. from March 17-29, and will continue to help activists schedule in-district meetings with their members of Congress and raise critical funds to send bed nets to those who need them. The selected intern will undertake supporting these and other special projects throughout their internship.
