Since 2015 bezev is commissioned by the BMZ as a center of excellence for the inclusion of volunteers with impairment/disability in the volunteer program "weltwärts". That's why we are working closely with different committees in the program and mediate between the BMZ and the civil society regarding different questions/matters of inclusion.
