Subject: Request for internship 

Hello colleagues,
I am happy to become the new member of Agri-ProFocus platform Netherlands. 
I have been involved with agriculture and agribusiness since 2004. Currently I'm busy with my master studies at Utrecht University in Sustainable Business and Innovation. I'm about to start with my thesis research. I'm going to study the challenges and possibilities that raisin producers in Afghanistan face to enter the sustainability standards and food safety certification of Europe and the Netherlands in particular.
I would like to conduct my research project jointly with an internship opportunity. This is actually a requirement for my master's program. 

Finding an internship opportunity seems to be challenging. I would highly appreciate any willingness and support in linking me with companies, NGOs or any other form of organizations relevant to agribusiness, standardization and/or sustainabile agriculture in general.

Thank You

Shoaib Amin

There are not many universities or practitioners who have submitted proposals related to Afghanistan yet, but there might be in future. See:
