BE CAREFUL! Since the first day i arrived the volunteers were talking bad about the manager. There is not healthy breakfast and no french courses, even if you can manage to find a school, you will not have time to go bcs of the timetable. I travel from Mexico to help there one day they kicked me out, they didn't care if i had a place to sleep that night, that happen also to another 4 people, that one day they become homeless in a foreign country and maybe without resources to pay the accommodation. I came back after two months and people continued expressing bad about the manager.

Sorry dear visitors, we had to ask Abimael to leave because he was dihonest with the other volunteers and abusing them. For example he was changing the team planning in hidden to let the other volunteers more work and saying it was our management team doing this.

After several lies and general meetings where he was still not willing to open himself and make peace with the growing conflicts it was provoking, we had to confront him in front of witnesses to protect other volunteers.

We highly recommend not to take him in any volunteering, and kindly ask our visitors on this website not to hesitate contacting us and make their own image of our work.

Kind regards,
Cedric
