Born in 1968
During our honeymoon in South America, we visited the projects in Argentina where my wife volunteered in 2001-2002. When we returned it was obvious to me to commit myself to a more equitable world by investing my free time and talents for AMU.
Born in 1958
The human being, in his dignity, has no colour, religion, gender or nationality. He has the right to be treated equally and fairly no matter where he was born. I have always been sensitive to injustice and in the face of it I have started my actions. Refugee and poor in Lebanon then MSF for several years and finally I founded AMU, a beautiful development NGO operating at a small-scale but in an effective and sustainable way.
Born in 1969
Eleven years ago I took over the accounting and financial tasks of AMU. Involved in the decisions of the Board, I realized that the relationship with our partners ensured the sustainability of our projects. Thus in 2013, I decided to visit the projects and to bring my knowledge on site. These annual visits allow me to set the record straight and to nuance our daily problems.
Born in 1979
It was mainly Claude, my husband, who introduced me to “Action pour un Monde Uni”. Today, we have 3 extraordinary children and I am committed to improving the lives of the world's most disadvantaged children.
Born in 1973
My dream of sharing some of my time with the most vulnerable people came true in 2001-2002 when I volunteered in three different projects in Argentina. After my return, I wanted to become more involved in AMU to continue this spirit of fraternity.
Born in 1963
During my youth, I was regularly involved in small actions to realize my dream of a more equitable, united world. As an adult, AMU has enabled me to make this commitment a reality by living "the culture of giving" with people close to me and with people from distant countries, and to get involved.
Born in 1982
Working in the health sector, I meet people in difficulty every day. However I felt the additional need to broaden my horizon.
In 2017, contact with AMU was created by a very good friend. So the team allowed me to visit a project in Nepal, which opened my view to the world of humanitarian aid and developed my interest in getting more involved with AMU.
Born in 1980
Two years ago, I left for a sabbatical year, alone with my backpack, to the four corners of the world. I consider this year rich in beautiful memories but also filled with overwhelming experiences, as a key event that opened my eyes and made me better understand the socio-economic injustices of our contemporary (and past) world, the extreme inequalities that weight on our planet as well as their historical roots. When I got home, thanks to my cousin Claude, I had contact with AMU. Their approach, their philosophy and their enthusiasm were key for me to join the association.
Born in 1973
After my university studies, I felt the need to get involved, alongside my professional work, in the humanitarian field. I found AMU where I was allowed to collaborate on several levels from the very beginning. In 2004, Brigitte and I decided to deepen this experience by volunteering in a project mainly focused on abandoned children in South America. Following this experience my path was traced and I started to work as a permanent staff member for AMU.
Born in 1994
My interest in the cultures and peoples of the world and an internship in the DRC motivated me to study anthropology and humanitarian action. The various humanitarian crises and inequalities in the world have led me to become involved with AMU. Its projects are locally defined and respect local social and cultural values, which is essential for me to ensure a sustainable development.
