Why donate to ESN?

Founded in 1989, ESN has become one of the largest student associations with over 500 local sections across 42 countries. Through our 15,000 volunteers, we provide direct support to more than 350,000 exchange students every year.

We work for the creation of a more mobile and flexible education environment by supporting and developing student exchange as well as providing an intercultural experience also to those who cannot access a period abroad (internationalisation at home).

Our mission is the enrichment of society through international students.
