Mercy Corps

About Mercy Corps

Since 1979, we have helped people grappling with the toughest hardships survive — and then thrive. That’s the heart of our approach: We help communities turn crisis into opportunity.
We believe secure, productive and just societies emerge when the private, public, and civil society sectors are able to interact with accountability, inclusive participation and mechanisms for peaceful change.
Throughout our history, Mercy Corps has demonstrated innovation, timeliness and the ability to adapt quickly to changing realities.

“My internship at Mercy Corps was extremely fulfilling as my supervisor tailored the internship to my interests and career aspirations! During my first week, we wrote down projects and tasks I wanted to complete by the end of my internship, so now I have a number of impressive deliverables I can present to future employers. I learned so much about international development and humanitarian aid and my team was extremely supportive and welcoming.”
