About this project

“Weltwärts” is a platform where young people can join different
organization to complete a volunteering service. Through the program they
are collecting experience in the field of civic and social engagement and
become part of their organization´s projects.

We, act for transformation, are dispatching our volunteers to Georgia and
Armenia where they are becoming parts of different organizations. In
exchange, we are also offering young people from Georgia, Armenia and Sudan
to work here in Aalen at the Um-Welthaus. They are either becoming part of
our projects and doing office assignments or they can implement their own
ideas. Among other things, the incoming volunteers are performing plays or
telling stories from their country for kindergarteners or primary school
students to watch. Through that, they are learning to civically engage and
to work towards a more peaceful, fair and sustainable world.

The “Weltwärts” program is partially supported by the BMZ, the German
ministry for economic cooperation and development. For the 25% that are not
financially covered, the volunteers are asked to raise money by building up
a circle of supporters.

On this website you can either donate for the German volunteers going to
the Caucasus region or you can contribute to the stay of one of our
incoming volunteers.
