The United Nations Foundation links the UN’s work with others around the world, mobilizing the energy and expertise of business and non-governmental organizations to help the UN tackle issues including climate change, global health, peace and security, women's empowerment, poverty eradication, energy access, and U.S.-UN relations.
The 3D Program for Girls and Women has been housed at the UN Foundation since its inception in March 2017, under the leadership of founder and Executive Director Geeta Rao Gupta.
The 3D Program seeks to demonstrate the value of convergent action to advance gender equality and girls’ and women’s empowerment. The work of the 3D Program is based in Pune City and rural Pune District in Maharashtra, India, where the Program works with local government across departments, and with civil society and the private sector, to increase economic opportunities for girls and women and address their health, education and safety needs. The 3D Program will Document, Drive, and Deliver to accomplish this.
The Program is currently in the third year of its four-year foundational phase and seeks to ramp up its communications outreach to colleagues, partners, and funders. In addition to its ongoing communications outreach, the Program is also documenting its work over the course of the foundational phase to form an accessible package of lessons learned, best practices analysis, to guide planning and convergent action to be adapted across sectors and interests.
The 3D Program intern will work directly with the Senior Program Associate.
