Sample cover letter for Internship position at UNICEF
I am writing in response to the internship opportunity available on your website. At this time I am pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in International business management at Ipag business school (Nice, France) where I will be graduating in July 2016. Hence, I am very interested in the [name of the project / program] implemented by your organization in [region].
In the pursuit of my goal, I participated in a fundraiser during the winter break of 2014 where we raised funds for the UNICEF by selling toys, educative games and books. I also helped raised money for vaccinations where one euro given would provide one vaccine to a child in need. Finally, I am a strong believer in the work done by NGOs and charities, as I have donated to many organizations such as Action against hunger and UNICEF.
I would be extremely pleased to be part of your organization and learn more about both the internal and external operations of a nongovernmental organization. An internship in your organization will provide me the opportunity to gain further knowledge and experience and also acquire more skills to achieve my goal of empowering and lifting underprivileged people. I enclosed a copy of my resume for your consideration. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss this opportunity in greater detail.
