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.

Volunteer Paola wrote an excellent report about the mid-term seminar of the current volunteer-generation. Take a look at it!
In the beginning of September it is happening again: a new generation of volunteers begins their service in Germany. This year we welcome 5 volunteers: Patrick and Gloria from Rwanda, Karina and Felipe from Ecuador and Narayan from Nepal. Espacially for Narayan we are happy to make this year happen, as the bad situation in Nepal after the earthquake formed many obstacles for all affected people.
During the first week of September the volunteers will have their welcoming-seminar near Göttingen, befor leaving for their host families and projects.
Get to know the volunteers here!
