The TALIDE association (Taller Latinoamericano de Investigación y Desarrollo – Latin American Research and Development Workshop) was founded in Rostock, Germany on 26.01.1995. Our association is non profit-making and is part of the worldwide movement working towards justice, peace, the integrity of creation and international understanding.

Tasks and goals
The association supports the integration of Latin Americans in Germany and/or their reintegration in Latin America. We seek to raise awareness of the social, economic and cultural situations in the countries of Latin America and to encourage international understanding and tolerance.

Areas of work

• Mentoring Latin Americans living in Rostock, in cooperation with the Rostock Migrant Council.
• Educating people about Latin America, mainly in kindergartens, schools and Rostock University.
• Planning, coordinating and evaluating the projects of the Development Collaboration.
