How we work

AGIAMONDO recruits motivated people to work at church and civil society organisations worldwide. As well as this, AGIAMONDO advises organisations on all questions regarding personnel cooperation and offers a comprehensive service to executing agencies that offer voluntary services. AGIAMONDO trains development workers and assists them before and during their assignment and when they return to their home country. We also design the programme for the Civil Peace Service.

... and why

AGIAMONDO's vision is to create a fair, mutually supportive and globally connected world. AGIAMONDO sees volunteers, development workers and partners in the global South and North as promoting global development. They join forces to ensure that “our common home” remains liveable. To this end, AGIAMONDO development workers provide valuable support to local organisations in their socially active work. For AGIAMONDO, learning and taking action together is the key to sustainable development.
