Knockin’ on SCI France’s door

By SCI France

Good morning SCIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!

Have you ever wondered what the activities of SCI France are in this late period of 2022?

Well, here we are  Let’s take a closer look at what we did for the last months of this dynamic (as always!) year!

Is September or October the best time to embark upon an SCI project?

Our Team, Hannah, Emilie and Maxime, did their best to respond to the needs of SCI Branches and partners in this dynamic period! We have managed to give the opportunity to 36 long-term volunteers (ESC, Service Civique and LTV) to join their project all around the world. Among them, some are projects located in the USA, Kosovo, Tunisia, Morocco, Belgium, Italy, Albania, Slovakia and local partners in France.

« You’ll never walk (to your volunteering project) alone » this song could be our anthem if we had one. Indeed, before all departure, we organise a full week of preparation. We discuss several topics in order to better anticipate and get ready for the volunteering mission: intercultural understanding, conflict management, history of SCI, insurance scheme, what is international solidarity and first aid training.
