Our association, which stands up for intercultural exchange and global justice exists since 2012. We organise a South-North voluntary service, which shall offer an as enriching and interesting time of service as possible to the volunteers, which are sent out by the partner structures from Ecuador, Mexico, Rwanda and Nepal every year.

But by now, we are a lot more: a more and more politically active association, which is determined to stand up against racism and postcolonial structures. Thereby, we try to repeatedly generate attention and stimulate reflection about the topics through different forms of activities. Our voluntary service only makes sense in the long term, if we manage to sensitize people for institutional racism. When connecting the volunteer programme and political work, we are especially enabled to overcome boundaries.


Our partners

We are cooperating with the following partners:




Beyond Nepal is engaged in different spheres of the Nepalian society. Volunteers are sent out frequently since 2012.




T’sununetik is our youngest partner organisation. The cooperation with the working group which evolved from a student initiative exists since 2015.




The partnership with Rwanda merged fluently from the predecessor organisation Aganyoni Kaguruka to Esperance in 2018. We are happy to be able to again welcome volunteers from Rwanda this year!
