What is FSJ INGLOS?
Also the program FSJ INGLOS (FSJ Incoming from the Global South) supported by the Federal Office for Family, Senior, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ) is putting its focus on international exchange with young people from countries of the Global South.
Within this framework, in cooperation with the AKLHÜ (Research group Learning and Helping Overseas) and the Friends of the Waldorf Education we carried out two conferences since 2015. These offered space to build bonds between volunteers, hosting organizations and partners of the Global South. All included parties could get in contact to reflect the voluntary service with consideration of all different components and perspectives in order to improve the successful outcome for all.
The publication “Changing Perspectives – Incoming voluntary services” illustrates this in a nice way. The printed version of the brochure is available in English, French, Spanish.
The personal experiences of volunteers, hosting organizations, coordinating organization and the international partner organizations are gathered in this brochure.
During the second conference 2017 we produced a video which gives a good insight on all the different experiences of the participating parties.
