My internship is taking place at the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Khartoum. It is part of the network of Information Centres, Services and Offices located in 63 countries worldwide linking the United Nations with people around the world and disseminating global UN messages to local audiences.
UNIC Khartoum serves as a reliable source of up-to-date information about the UN and delivers the information to a wide range of people in Sudan. It maintains contacts with national and regional media in Sudan, disseminates background information and press materials to the media, places op-eds and feature articles, arranges interviews and organizes press conferences and briefings.
It also offers products and services such as newsletters, libraries, videos and internet facilities. The Centre also works with civil society in promoting a variety of issues through seminars, exhibits and other activities. UNIC Khartoum also participates in observances of international days, years and decades.
