Welcome to the "Zugvögel"
The non-profit association „Zugvögel, interkultureller Süd-Nord-Austausch e.V.“ has set itself the goals of combating institutional racism and global inequalities.
We organize voluntary services in Germany for people from the Global South, in order to reverse the common practice on the volunteer market. With our program young adults from Latin America, Africa and Asia get the opportunity to make intercultural experiences in a self determined, independent way, which enriches themselves personally as well as their social surrounding both in their country of origin and in Germany.

In the beginning of September it is happening again: a new generation of volunteers begins their service in Germany. This year we welcome 4 volunteers: Luis and Pedro from Ecuador and Yareni and Ricardo from Mexico.
During the first week of September the volunteers will have their welcoming-seminar in Heidelberg, befor leaving for their host families and projects.
