Hello :) - need info on NGOs

Hello everyone! I am an undergraduate student in Communication and Mass media, looking for an internship in Luzern. I live in Greece now but i'm thinking to go abroad in a couple of months. Could anyone help me giving me info about the non gov organization (of all types) & companies connected to communication/media located in Luzern? Even about the names/mail adresses of companies with a sector taking care of the media presentation of the company...

p.s. I love anime and handcrafts!
p.s. sorry for the trouble and thanks in advance! (I have already search the net for info but nothing serious came out...)

or more likely Geneva. Lots of NGOs in Geneva due to the UN, etc..

I cannot imagine there would be many, if any, in Luzern, why Luzern?

Re: Hello :) - need info on NGOs

Geneva & Zurich may be interesting options but my first priority is Luzern because a friend of mine will be there and we could share the expences! Moreover would be great to have some company.
NGO are not my first choice due to the fact that it's difficult to stay and work there after the internship period,so I care more about advertising companies. I have the pros that I'll apply to my University for the Erasmus Placement program and I'll have a financial support plus that the company wont be obligated to pay me (although i may have to find also a part time job to support my self :P). I hope I'l find something... Thanks for your interest!

Re: Hello :) - need info on NGOs

I work in Geneva for 2 NGOs based abroad. The place is full of NGOs (many global) due to the proximity to the UN. Outside of here, it is apparently pretty quiet. If you really want to work for NGOs,especially international ones, then this is the place to be.You could try contacting MANDAT international, the Swiss state sponsored NGO liaison servie, they may be able to help at http://www.mandint.org/

Re: Hello :) - need info on NGOs

Hello Sidney,

I'd love to work for MKO's but the problem is that the financial aid from the University for my internship is not enough and I don't think NGO's could provide me financial support or a place to stay... Have you heard anything about interns (not volunteers) in NGO's ?


p.s. I speak only english and greek

MKOs??? Lots of NGOs use interns - where I am now there are several. Definitely contact MANDAT they are exceptionally helpful, and they even help interns find very cheap accommodation too - http://www.mandint.org/
