I was extremely delighted, last June, to take over the position of managing director of Terre Sans Frontières.
It is a great source of motivation for me to join an organization, which has been working for more than thirty years now to advance equity, health, equality between men and women, access to education and knowledge, respect for the environment and access to clean water. Terre Sans Frontières is an organization that is firmly anchored in the field. Thanks to Robert Gonneville’s passion, it has developed financing tools and built partnerships in Africa, Haiti and Canada, which has allowed it to maintain the course on the path of solidarity and a fairer sharing, here and abroad. We are facing several organizational challenges due to the current international cooperation context, but the impoverished populations that we wish to support are also facing their own share of challenges. With the help of our team, which cares deeply about TSF’s mission, and your support, we will continue to develop initiatives that will both enable the consolidation of the main pillars of TSF and multiply interventions, while actualizing our mission.
