The development volunteer service weltwarts was founded in 2008 by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Weltwarts focuses on joint intercultural learning through various different programs. All interested young German people between the ages of 18 and 28 have the opportunity to participate in the learning service. A weltwarts volunteer will stay in Auroville for 12 months to gain experience abroad and acquire knowledge of the language and personal competencies. If you want to come to Auroville with weltwarts, you have to apply to Au now He International Deutschland eV.
