OUR STORY

When we see what is happening around the world, it brings us some inability to understand why things are going so wrong.

Indeed, international development programs keep on failing in the so-called “developing countries”. They assure to give help, but cause more damage. Is it now the time to change this and to make things right!

On one side, there are many social entrepreneurs who are making significant change in those countries.

On the other side, we have many young graduated people, with the best diplomas, who have trouble to get a job in the so-called “developed countries” because their lack of experience… But if nobody accepts to give them a chance, how will they ever get experience?

That is why we wanted to bring something new on the table. We believe that if we give the opportunity to the youth to find professional experience by improving relationship between Western and Southern countries… Something great will happen!

Therefore, we’ve decided to go and find those social entrepreneurs to ask them: “what should we do to be the most useful to you?”. Their answer was clear: “we need some skills, but we don’t have the money to find them.”

From there, we made this commitment to give them the skills they need, while solving the youth unemployment issue in Europe.

Manifesto

There are many social entrepreneurs around the globe with great projects to fulfil. We want to take part in this awesome movement.

The youth of the world can make these greater. We want to inspirit them to act and to make it successful.

Each social issue is an opportunity to realize ourselves and to change the status quo! With a perfect combination of ambition, humility and a motivated team, the impossible become possible. We must change the game!

"We don’t solve a problem with the same thinking that has created it in the first place” — A. Einstein

Our job is to spread the news.

EVERYBODY IS A CHANGEMAKER!

What is the point to do something if it is not to make a change?


MOVEMENT IS TAKING PLACE

What exactly are we talking about when we talk about changemakers?

Well for us, it’s the people who see the problem…

Issue: Affordable education

Answer : Bridge International Academies

The project was established in 2008 in Nairobi. Their mission is to provide a life-changing education to pupils. By working together with governments, communities, teachers and parents they make sure children receive an highly-quality and affordable education. This education allows them to fullfil their potential which, according to the BIA, is the key.

Those are not the only one. Many people around the word are working everyday in that direction. If you want to find more opportunies, check out our missions! We keep on working to make new partnerships.

CHECK POINTS

A. Training

Before every mission, it is primordial to be ready! Every GI will need to receive a real training to investigate the situation in the field. With QUINOA, our partner, we will escort every GI to attend to the online training and to the “Immersion Camp”. During the 2-days camp, GIs will have the opportunity to learn everything about the mission, as well as cultural, history and geopolitical issues.


B. Experience

How will your GI experience run through?

There is four main step.

Step #1: You must go through 3 interviews in order to get accepted. The first one is to get to know each other; also, your motivation will be the key. The second one is to check on your skills to be sure you will perfectly fit for the job. The last one is a talk with the chief of the mission (our partner on the field) to see if there is a good chemistry between you two. As you’ll be working with him/her for 3 months or more, it’s better if you get along.
Step #2: As soon as you’ve get accepted, and get your registration fees in order, you’ll start the preparation stage. You will have time to:
  • organize yourself for your trip,
  • receive training and go to “the immersion camp”
  • be introduced to your squad (the international staff you’ll be working with),
  • get your working files ready with all the mission statement and the guidelines of the mission.
Step #3: You’ll be on the field. Each week, we will ask you to fill a form to get your feedback. Do not worry, this is not a heavy paperwork, just a brief record of the achievement you have done on the field with the goods and the bads. This will be used to improve the mission.
Step #4: After you’ll be back, we’ll ask you to come back to us with your local squad members to have a “Returning to HQ Days”. During these, we’ll have the opportunity to discuss your experience, feelings, anecdotes… We want to learn from your story and stay in touch.

C. Period

Most of our missions lasts 3 months, 6 months or 1 year long. We believe that under these lengths, GIs do not have time to do something meaningful. It takes time to make a change, that is why we seek for long-term relationship with our partners. However, in each season of life, actions need to be taken.

If you want to enroll yourself in one mission or another, you need at first to check the registration deadlines. Between the enrollment and the departure, GIs will receive their training and will need to prepare their mission.


D. Cost

One mission cost on average 2,400€ (it could change a little bit!) and here is how the money is allocated:
