One of the most impressive things about the United States is how much we do for the rest of the world. We may do our fair share of messing things up and meddling in other people’s business, but the amount of aid that comes out of this country is truly remarkable. There are all kinds of organizations that are doing a variety of things to help the developing world. Many of these organizations are members of InterAction, a Washington, DC based non-profit that “seeks to shape important policy decisions on relief and long term development issues, including foreign assistance, the environment, women, health, education and agriculture.” They represent more than 190 member organizations that combine to do work in nearly every developing country. All of InterAction’s member organizations share the goal of a “peaceful, just and prosperous world of nations with inclusive and sustainable societies.”
If you keep up on international focused non-profits, than you have probably heard of many of InterAction’s members. Some of the more recognizable names include Save the Children, World Vision, Habitat for Humanity, and Oxfam America. InterAction’s work spans across four main areas: International Development, Accountability & Learning, Humanitarian Action, and Policy & Advocacy. With so many different non-profits attacking similar problems, it’s great to have an organization like InterAction bringing them together, promoting common interests, and holding them to a high standard of accountability. It’s all with the intent to “eliminate extreme poverty, uphold human rights, safeguard a sustainable planet and ensure human dignity for poor and vulnerable populations worldwide by elevating and advancing the goals of the U.S.-based international nonprofit community.” If that sounds like something that you want to be a part of, then take a look at InterAction’s Jobs page. They have a few positions that might interest new or recent grads including Web Editor – Public Policy and Communications Team and Legislative Coordinator for International Development.
