Since many years young people from Germany have the possibility to take part in a development volunteer service in developing and emerging countries. Since 2013 young people from the host-countries have the possibility to do the same in Germany - this program is called the "South-North component".
For one year, young people aged 18 to 28 can serve as a volunteer in Germany e.g. by working with children, protection of the environment, sports and culture. We help to connect host organisation from Rhineland-Palatinate with Rwandan. For more information about the south-north component in general click here (https://www.weltwaerts.de/en/volunteers.html). For further questions about a volunteer service in Rhineland-Palatinate you can send us an E-Mail.

I would like to take the following to my home
In general it was a nice experience. I had a chance to understand a lot of things that matters a lot in my future life.
