Why become a volunteer at Pour un Sourire d'Enfant ?
One of the strenghts of Pour un Sourire d'Enfant (PSE) over the past 25 years has been its volunteer network. To start with, it was very informal, with the involvement of Christian and Marie-France des Pallières', the founders of the association, relatives; it has gradually become structured and the activities have diversified.
Becoming a volunteer means joining a team, feeling useful and having a real impact, as our volunteers testify, "we get involved with motivated people who want to make things happen", Laurent PSE Nord.
Thanks to volunteering, we can implement activities to help the poorest children in Cambodia. We raise funds, ensuring we keep our fundraising costs low!
Together, we can put a smile on the face of thousands of children!
Help us continue the adventure!
To become a volunteer is to bring your desire to act, your energy and your enthusiasm to raise awareness of Pour un Sourire d'Enfant and the actions carried out to benefit the children supported through the programmes and to raise funds which are used to take care of the children.
You can give a little or a lot of your time, on a one-off basis or regularly, within a local volunteer branch or individually. If you wish, you can offer your skills and talents on a specific topic. You decide how you want to get involved!
Depending on your availability, find out how you can keep the adventure going, again and again, in a very simple and flexible way!
