Remarks

Please note that ASA projects neither imply financial support for nor financial contribution of the host partner organization. The only exception are ASA global (ASA-SüdNord) projects where the stay of participants from the Global South is co-financed by the German Partner organization and ASApreneurs Projects where the partner businesses remunerate the ASA interns.

The wide majority of our participants are very motivated and commit a lot of time and energy to their work. Nevertheless, please do not expect fully skilled professionals; the projects are not to be understood as deployment of experts, but as a platform for mutual learning and the sharing of ideas.

Project countries

In which countries can the ASA projects take place?

 

ASA projects can take place in principle in all DAC countries. Nevertheless there are some exceptions:

 

ASA projects can not take place in countries for which the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs published a travel restriction for security reasons. Please contact ASA early enough before handing in a proposal, in order to ask if this restriction also concerns the country you would like to propose an ASA project for. In some cases the travel restriction concerns only part of one country. In this case the ASA project can not take place in this specific area.

 

The ASA-Program needs to also follow the security restrictions that are valid for weltwärts volunteers.
