Information for Organizations

Find more information on how to establish and mantain inclusive cultures, working structures, practices and processes for your organization and for your offers/programs of voluntary commitment.

The “UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities” from 2006 declares social participation of persons with a disability/impairment in all areas of life is a human right. According to article 32 (1) a) of the Convention, measures have to be taken in order to ensure that international cooperation - including international development programmes - involves persons with disabilities/impairments and is accessible for them. In line with the UN Convention, international voluntary services must enable a group of active people as diverse as possible broadly in order to encourage an examination of developmental issues and to support their involvement in development cooperation.

We offer consultations, trainings, publications, events and networking options for all organizations interested in inclusive voluntary commitment abroad.
