The coronavirus pandemic is the worst global healthcare crisis in decades. More than ever before, it calls for people who can provide expert support to local partners in host countries.

 

With personnel cooperation, we are playing our part in shaping a better, sustainable future for the world. Here, AGIAMONDO focuses on the power of personal interaction and relationships and on the dynamism of joint learning.

 

We must all continuing developing if we wish to have a peaceful and just future together. Development workers from the Global South can help us to do so, drawing on their own personal perspective.

 

Acting together

For more than 60 years, AGIAMONDO has been recruiting motivated people to work at church and civil society organisations worldwide. As well as this, we advise organisations on all questions regarding personnel cooperation and offer a comprehensive service to executing agencies that offer voluntary services. We train development workers for international cooperation work and assist them before and during their assignment and when they return to their home country. We also design the programme for the Civil Peace Service.

Our work during the coronavirus crisis

When the coronavirus pandemic began, we at AGIAMONDO also adapted our work practices to comply with contact and travel restrictions. Accordingly, development workers have not been able to travel to our partner countries since mid-March. However, many of them have remained in their host countries during the coronavirus crisis, where they continue to work for their partner organisations – usually from a home office.
