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.
