INEX – Association for Voluntary Activities is a non-governmental not-for-profit organisation founded in 1991 to carry out and support international voluntary work and intercultural education. We arrange voluntary placements abroad for Czech volunteers and organise voluntary projects in our country for incoming foreign volunteers. Annually we send nearly 800 volunteers abroad on long or short-term placements and receive 400 volunteers for the work in our country.
The mission of INEX-SDA is by organising international voluntary projects, educational programs and campaigns to:
1. assist the development of a tolerant and open society and
2. encourage an active and responsible approach to the world around us both locally and globally
We create space in which especially (but not only) young people can gain new experience, expand their skills and and develop their own views of the complexity of the world around them.
In various regions of the Czech Republic we organise voluntary projects and programs of social integration, environmental education and countryside development. The Prague office is focusing not only on sending the volunteers abroad and coordination of voluntary projects in the Czech Republic but also on developmental and intercultural education projects and campaigns (e.g. GLEN, Football for Development, The Stereotype in us). The Brno office carries out mainly social programs for disadvantaged children and our offices in Kostelecke Horky and Bile Karpaty work in environmental education and in supporting the revival and maintenance of local traditions and crafts.
