A place whre you can share your experience and assist in promoting the good work this does abroad.
Ibis works with education and human rights in Latin America and Africa. It is operated from Denmark and recieves most of its resources from the government. It is exceptionally good at cooperation with local NGOs abroad. In Aalborg we are a small group of volunteers who are happy to welcome new volunteers. People are not there because they know each other but rather because they can make a difference.
To make sure all children go to school and recieve qualified education, in their native language. Plus, assisting minority groups in speaking up, to have their basic human rights respected. The Aalborg group's aim is to make people in Northern Jutland aware of the problematics and of Ibis through interesting events, such as documtaries and debates.
