About us

Open Door International e.V. (ODI) was founded in 1983 as a non-profit association dedicated to the organization of long-term and education-oriented exchange programs.

With our exchange programs we want to contribute towards eliminating prejudices, misunderstandings and conflicts and support tolerance between people. Regardless of social, cultural or religious background, the students in our outbound and inbound programs are presented with the opportunity to make friends and to engage the world.

At ODI we counsel all of the exchange participants individually as this in our view is the primary prerequisite for a successful exchange. In addition we foster transparent and honest communication within our organization as well as with our partners and institutions supporting our intercultural encounters.
