International NGOs


Though not as widespread as in other developing countries, some multinational NGO and charity foundations have offices in Argentina, with limited opportunities for foreigners to work as a volunteer or intern. Securing a placement through one of these requires more initiative and commitment on behalf of the applicant, as demand for spaces is generally very high. Working at one of these global organizations will usually involve more office-based projects than fieldwork, though the chance to contribute to a high profile aid program remains a major attraction, and, of course, will look great on the résumé. Below are some of the prominent groups, with contact details.
