What we offer

NEPAL SOCIAL BUSINESS INTERNSHIP 

Nepal Social Business Internship is an annual program of Yunus Social Business Center, King’s College Kathmandu. The main purpose of this internship is to spread the idea and concept of social entrepreneurship among the students in Nepal and abroad while also creating an opportunity for students to apply their skills in development of a social enterprise. Students are placed in different social enterprises with set milestones for both the company and the Yunus Center at King’s, for which the team had to meet the compliance in order to succeed in their internship. In 2017, students from National Central University, Taiwan completed their internship which was held from December 9 to 23.
