Sophie Ganeau, volunteer
Sophie taught geography for 38 years. Retired, she contacted us in early 2015 to see if she could help...
Can you tell us why you chose to join Planète Enfants & Développement ?
I met Planète Enfants & Développement through a friend who was already a volunteer there. I had just left an NGO where I had learned to manage volunteer work for several years and was looking for a new association to which I could bring my new skills.
Moreover, I am particularly attached to Nepal, a country that I have traveled in part on foot many times!
What exactly do you do for the association?
I am in charge of the volunteer work, which means looking for volunteers for specific or regular events, in the office or at home, then organizing their mission and making the link with the permanent staff.
What does it get you?
This mission is essential in my daily life. I feel useful and valued and it keeps me in the workforce. This conversion is enriching, rejuvenating and stimulating to approach this stage of life. I have a large family and combining my role as a grandmother with that of a committed volunteer gives me a precious balance.
A word to convince other volunteers to join us?
The permanent team is friendly and dynamic, the working atmosphere warm! All kinds of missions are waiting for new volunteers eager to learn, to be useful and to receive a lot in exchange for their availability[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
