GP Switch Exchange Programme
Organized by: selina komers
We were inspired and brought together by the work of Global Potential France (GPF), an NGO engaged with socio-educative work (www.globalpotential.ong) of empowering youth and inspiring change. Having participated in their programme Projet 18 Months and having travelled to Senegal, hosted there by the local family, we would like to host six outstanding young contributors and leaders of the community (Marie-Louise Sène, Elhadji Faye, Gorgui Sanokho, Moustafa Sow, Fatoumata Sall, Bernard Faye) from the village of Nianiar (the Mbour region of Senegal) for a week of “cultural immersion” and entrepreneurial workshops in Paris.
Our Exchange Programme in brief:
-An intense programme featuring a week of workshops on social entrepreneurship, the art of public speaking & oration, linguistic & language lessons for better professional French and beginner English, with the fundamental aim of boosting confidence in oneself
-To experience an intercultural immersive programme in Paris (complemented successively by a separate programme of 45 days in Haiti or Nicaragua as part of Project 18, a programme by Global Potential France) in the spirit of a global vision of the world, and inspiring open-mindedness.
-To create a network between the young leaders of communities around the world
