ICC is from Nurses for Nurses
A project to protect Nurses in profession, working abroad and for their future as high qualified workers. The project started in 2017 when many nurses reported irregularities carried out by some agencies; shady processes and unexpected expenses that people in the recruitment business are taking from them; another issue is the standard of teachings in the language schools in the Philippines.
INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL PROJECT – MANILA – MUNICH
Support, supervision and development of management programs for German language schools and sources of information, programs and materials for language learners.
ICC started in 2017 as it became known that many nurses who already work in Germany often have problems with their employers, have changed the conditions of work from their contract agreement or the nurses go to Germany under false promises.
There are many complaints heard and negative postings about their situations;
Read down to a common denominator:
The nurses in the Philippines get too little information on how the process works in Germany.
How the German system works or which employers are to be preferred:
- What is a union?
- What is a collective agreement?
- What are the rights and obligations of an employee/employers
Another truth is that many of these nurses in Germany are in distress and in need of help. It happens now and could happen more in the future. This is where the ICC Germany comes into play. Through the membership of ICC a help should be given here.
An ICC club was founded next to ICC as an institute. Everyone can become a member. In addition to sponsorship and voluntary membership; a “silver membership” is important for nurses.
In Germany, an ICC branch is temporarily settled in Munich and will soon become an independent organization. The membership provides the basics in Germany; the nurses, for example, get legal advice for all emergencies.

- Review employers and create profiles.
