Volunteering - Small help is great!

You always wanted to do something sensible and make a positive contribution to society?

Volunteer for nature and environment, children, sick or migrants?

No problem - it's easy!

The possibilities for social commitment are manifold: children read stories, spend time with the elderly, distribute food to the homeless, donate money, plant trees, put on a city garden, go with dogs, give tuition ...

Many humanitarian and ecological projects are dependent on voluntary and committed aid. The financing is usually made up of state funds and donations. Volunteering in an association or initiative brings three benefits at once: helping those who need help, the project can continue to serve a good cause through your help, and help you make the world more enjoyable.

RESET gives you tips on how and where you can get involved.

Volunteer agencies - find the right project

If you want to become active in Germany, volunteer agencies, like The Federal Working Community of Volunteer Agencies, to find projects, initiatives or organizations in which you can make a meaningful contribution to your personal interests. Volunteers and organizations get together there and organize e.g. Reading sponsorship or mentoring projects for young people in search of a training place.

Be voluntarily active in nature and environmental protection

Social commitment not only helps people but also nature. As a result, many organizations are committed to environmental protection and are dependent on volunteers. Almost every major environmental association has local groups, where one can actively use animals, plants and nature.

The Naturschutzbund Deutschland eV (Nabu) is a nature conservation association that works for nature through concrete projects and actions on the ground, carries out environmental education, promotes diverse commitment and also conducts scientific research. Find out how you can participate.

Plant trees! On the wikiwoods online platform, you can find other like-minded people and set up a tree plant group to perform forest and tree planting in your environment. Climate protectors, hobby planters and school classes can join together with foresters and environmental groups. Read RESET to find out how to protect the forest.

Neighborhood gardens - how to do that, you can read a community garden in the RESET article plant.

If you have a heart for animals, it is always worth to go to a shelter near you and ask if they still need a helping hand. Many of the work involved there does not require any special training, but rather only gives pleasure in dealing with and not afraid animals.

If you have absolutely no time to get involved actively, you can make a big contribution with a small donation - look at the donation projects of RESET.
