Our Team

Our team is based in the French Alps (5 permanent members) and in Matam in Senegal (12 permanent members). The ADOS’ expertise is not limited to the know-how of the members of their own team, but also extends to an extensive network of skilled and experienced professionals associated with the organization. Otherwise we welcome 2 or 3 civil service volunteers per year.

Thus the multidisciplinary and intercultural composition of our team is essential to galvanize ad strengthen relationship between French and Senegalese actors.

Even if we usually work with actors from Matam (Senegal), we are able to work with actors from other regions of Senegal, and from countries similar to Senegal. If you need our expertise, please contact us, it would be a pleasure to help you.
