Inclusive Voluntary commitment

bezev wants everyone to be able to take part in voluntary commitment abroad!

This is why we have been promoting inclusive voluntary services for over ten years. Bezev has made it its business to make voluntary services more inclusive and to make it possible for all people, with or without disabilities, to spend time abroad. 

Stays abroad play an increasingly important role in the lives of many people, especially young people. The motives for this are very diverse and range from the desire to take a breath or to develop their personal perspectives to the need to be able to make their own knowledge and experience abroad available to other people. Stays abroad shape the lives of many people - whether professionally or personally. The right to inclusive voluntary service is anchored in the UN-CRPD and is therefore a human right. It can be categorised by the right to education (Art. 24), habilitation and rehabilitation (Art. 26), participation in political and public life (Art. 29) and international cooperation (Art. 32).

In the meantime, there is a wide variety of opportunities for voluntary work abroad. Whether for short or long periods of time - whether work camps, international youth encounters, weltwärts volunteer service or the European Solidarity Corps. There is also a wide variety of state-subsidised opportunities to go abroad, and these offer more and more possibilities for support and funding for additional needs. Bezev works in a network of organisations that are open to inclusive secondment.

Our offers in the area of inclusive volunteer services includes the following:

- We have been sending young people with and without disabilities through the weltwärts programme since 2008.

- We advise people with impairments/disabilities who would like to volunteer abroad.

- We advise and train organisations that are active in the field of volunteerism/volunteering abroad.

- We are politically active and are represented in various networks and committees to improve the framework conditions for inclusive stays abroad.
