TYPES OF PROGRAMMES
- IBG is a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit making organisation founded in 1965. IBG believes that an international workcamp is the ideal opportunity for people to live and work together as an international team and so start to learn how to tolerate and understand why some cultures are different to others.
- IJGD is a non-profit, non-denominational organisation, which has been active in international youth work since 1948. IJGD pursues the goal of encouraging young people to become aware of existing social and environmental conditions, whereby they develop into active and responsible participants in a democratic society.
