Our association that advocates intercultural exchange and global justice exists since 2012. We organise a South-North volunteer service that attempts to make the term of service for the volunteers, sent every year by our partner structures in Ecuador, Mexiko, Rwanda and Nepal, as enriching and interesting as possible.

But by now we have become much more: an increasingly politically active association which wants to resolutely oppose racism and postcolonial structures. Herein we consistently try to generate attention for these topics with various forms of action and thus encourage contemplation. Because only when we manage to sensitize people for institutional racism our volunteer service makes sense in the long run. When we bring volunteer service and political work together, we can succed in overcoming borders.


Our partners

We are working together with the following partner structures:




Beyond Nepal engages in various fields of the Nepali civil society. Since 2012, volunteers are sent regularly to Germany.




Ts’ununetik is our youngest partner organisation. The cooperation with this group that emerged out of a student initiative’s working group was installed in 2015.




In 2018 the partnership with Rwanda passed on fluently from the previous association Akanyoni Kaguruka to Esperance. We are happy to welcome volunteers from Rwanda in Germany this year again!
