ICRC Finance Internship

Recours 4 Kenya

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is one of the largest humanitarian agencies in the world, providing relief, rehabilitation and post-conflict reconstruction support to victims of oppression and violent conflict. The IRC has worked for over seven decades and today is involved in over 25 conflict zones in the world.

We address both the immediate, life saving needs of conflict-affected people in an emergency and the reconstruction needs in post conflict societies. The IRC is committed to a culture of bold leadership, innovation in all aspects of our work, creative partnerships and thorough accountability to those we serve. The IRC is an international agency with offices in London, New York, and Geneva.

With a strong footprint in South Gaalkacyo (since 2007), Mogadishu (since 2011), Garowe (since 2012), and Dhusamareb (since 2015), the IRC has developed a solid humanitarian portfolio in the field of health, women’s protection and empowerment, water, hygiene and sanitation, and economic empowerment. In addition, the IRC piloted a local governance program in Puntland as a way to bridge local participation and community development.
