Our association is an official recipient organisation in the “weltwärts” programme. Our DRC School Project & Community Centre enjoys the support of 2 volunteers yearly. We as a recipient organisation benefit greatly from the support of volunteers – a real enrichment for us.
You are a German Citizen and want to do a one-year voluntary service, then have a look at the sending organisation DRK-Landesverband Westfalen-Lippe. You don’t have so much time, the program “Weltwärts” is no option or you are just planning a short internship? Then get in touch with us and we will provide you with information. Note, however, that we do not offer any financial support.

WHAT DO FORMER VOLUNTEERS SAY?
“What still characterizes me to this day is the “thinking outside the box” during my voluntary service in Namibia. It was an incredibly enriching experience to get an insight into the everyday life of the children and it was a lot of fun learning to do handicrafts with the kids or playing a round of soccer. Here, I have developed an awareness and appreciation for a number of privileges that in Germany seemed perfectly natural to me. An example for one of these privileges is access to education and sufficient school places for all children, which unfortunately is not always given in the DRC. It is all the better that the DRC School Project & Community Center is making a small but important contribution here and has even been expanded, renewed and improved since my time on site.”
