Field mission (solidarity leave)

International solidarity

Every year the De l’eau pour le Sahel association organises a field mission in Sub-Saharan Africa. The missions take place in one the five beneficiary countries of the Sahel Vert 4 programme: Senegal, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso and Togo (politically unstable countries are excluded from field missions). The local members of the NGO Eau Vive run the mission on site and assist us at every stage of our journey.


The purpose is to meet the economic groupings benefiting from the Sahel Vert 4 programme, financed by the association. We stay with locals in order to establish close contact and quality interaction. In addition to offering the incredibly enriching experience of bringing together two cultures, these missions are essential for all stakeholders:

-          The members of the groupings are supported in their daily actions; they come away feeling proud and even more motivated,

-          Eau Vive benefits from an outside (and benevolent) perspective on the quality of their support to the groupings,

-          Back in France, the members of the association can attest to the proper use of donations and give concrete arguments to support future fundraising campaigns.


The missions are also an opportunity to transport and distribute to clinics and villagers the clothing, school material, medication, etc. collected throughout the year.


Number of volunteers: 8 maximum per field mission


LOCATION OF FIELD MISSION: Senegal, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso or Togo
