However, we also accept "beginner" profiles.

Eco-volunteering is a solidarity and participative action which consists in helping a project linked to the preservation and enhancement of animal, plant, environmental and cultural diversity. Eco-volunteering consists of carrying out voluntary actions in favor of the environment in general and, more particularly, of fauna and flora. During your mission, you will take part in concrete actions on the ground in the company of biologists, scientists, rangers and other players from reserves, parks, refuges and other environmental protection organizations. Eco-volunteering is also an exchange that places volunteers at the heart of the host structures and, therefore, puts them in direct contact with the local population.

The teaching profession has long been described as "the most beautiful profession in the world". In fact, teaching still nurtures many vocations among young people. Your mission will be adapted to your profile, according to your experience and study path. In addition, you will be required to work either in kindergarten-primary, or in college-high school or even with adults. Among kindergarten students, you will carry out early learning activities, learning about group life, awareness of reading and arithmetic. You will play an essential role in the emotional and intellectual development of the students. And it is mainly through fun activities, drawings, music, etc... that you will reinforcelanguage learning, socialization, cultural and bodily development of children. In primary, you must be very versatile. In college-high school, you will teach a single subject (mathematics or English, for example). You will have to work with an adolescent audience from 11 to 18 years old.

The particularity of your mission is that it is part of a logic of development aid to the country or countries where you will be called upon to intervene: build a school, launch a micro-finance program, install irrigation canals , providing legal aid to migrants, etc. Therefore, emergency situations (although important ) will not represent the primary interest of your work.

The expectations of the populations vary: people with disabilities, abandoned children: single mothers,in reception centers and other social establishments.

Humanitarian projects in the field of health are primarily aimed at active or retired medical and paramedical professionals (doctors, physiotherapists, nurses, midwives / midwives, etc.), young graduates and students in the medical or paramedical field. The role and tasks assigned to them are highly dependent on their qualifications. The project can range from a simple observation internship to a qualified health volunteer mission. Participants are usually placed in health facilities (hospitals, clinics, dispensaries, etc.) and support local medical staff in their daily work.
A humanitarian mission in an orphanage is rewarding and represents a challenge while traveling abroad. Many children who have been abandoned by their families for financial, social or personal reasons live in foster homes. With the main concerns being the welfare and protection of children, volunteers are hand-picked and must be highly qualified to work with them. You will assist the main carers in their work and you will be able to ensure a better future for the children you will take care of.
We call an orphanage a residential institution that welcomes children who do not have regular contact with their families or loved ones, and which is not intended to provide specialized treatment or care in the short term. Some children are in fact orphans, while others still have one or more parents, but the latter cannot meet their needs and are forced to entrust them to these institutions. Orphanages were quite common in several of our countries of action, however, in recent years, we have observed a growing movement of reintegration of these children with their families, relatives or in foster families. This movement is called deinstitutionalization.
