Immersion in a farmers' cooperative-Senegal
Description: "Les Ententes" is a non-governmental organization created by farmers and dedicated to the village communities. The association, which promotes an economical alternative, aims at providing educational work, reducing inequalities among villagers and slowing down the migration flow towards big cities.
Type of Work: Since this workcamp is an immersion in a small agricultural village, volunteers will take part in the daily life of the inhabitants and will be free to organize projects within the community (activities with children, visits...).
Study Theme: Food Sovereignty
Accommodation: Volunteers will be hosted in families. Each family will only provide accommodation for one volunteer, but the association will try to put at least two volunteers in the same village.
Language: French knowledge is necessary in order to communicate with the families! Volunteers have to be aware that some people in the village don't speak French (in this case, the children will translate).
Requirements: This project requires self-reliance from the volunteers since they will stay in families, and not within a group of volunteers. It's also very important that the volunteers arrive in Dakar 1 to 3 days before the first day of the camp. In Dakar, an orientation day will be organized by the partner (organization) and then all the volunteers will be driven to the different villages.
Approximate Location: In different villages quite far from Dakar.
Notes: The cost (75.000 CFA- 114 euros) doesn't include transportation nor accommodation in Dakar.
