On the occasion of the 35th anniversary of Electriciens sans frontières, the representatives of our 14 regional delegations, partners and members of the Board of Directors met again after nearly 2 years without a face-to-face event.
On the agenda: numerous exchanges, speeches, a conference, a round table and feedback.
In order to show a diversified panel of projects carried out within our structure, project leaders were invited to present and explain the main stages and challenges of these projects. The audience was then able to interact with the project leaders on the specific characteristics of each project:
- Remote management of a project in red zone or for health reasons
- Central role of local actors in the definition of needs, responses and follow-up
- Importance of training and support beyond the technical aspects
These exchanges have been very enriching because they allow Electriciens sans frontières to capitalize on these different experiences. In addition, a focus on the remote action mode during periods of lock down made it possible to capitalize on these innovative procedures.
Karine Dellière, teacher in intercultural approaches in business at Sciences Po and is Secretary General of the Fond Agir Pour L’Emploi at EDF, is also a volunteer with the Île-de-France – Hauts-de-France regional delegation of Electriciens sans frontières.
” Electriciens sans frontières, whose work consists in providing access to electricity and water for all, everywhere in the world, does not limit its intervention to technical aspects. The notion of interculturality is essential to the proper functioning of relationships between the various stakeholders in a project. ”
Project leader, Karine works on the implementation of the Café Lumière model in Benin and intervenes on subjects related to the notion of interculturality, which is essential to understanding the needs up to the implementation, the follow-up and thus the success of a development project.
