"My volunteering is dedicated to assembling and monitoring projects."Françoise
"I was able to ensure the coordination tasks that require a presence in the field."Clément
I started my journey with Electriciens sans frontières at the same time as my gap year project. I joined a project team following the explosion in the port of Beirut in Lebanon. Based on site, I was able to carry out coordination tasks that require a presence in the field: being the interlocutor with actors and partners on site, auditing schools, meeting with suppliers of solar equipment..
