Hi, my name is Olivier Chevanne and I am French. Currently unemployed, I came to Cape Town to visit a friend for one month in order to improve my English. I wanted to work as a volunteer for an organisation and someone who lives here sent me to Scalabrini Centre. I have been able to offer my help in many administrative office tasks and I have been working specificially on the Beading Project. This experience is teaching me a lot of things about refugees and asylum seekers in South Africa, and about the difficulties of integration for infected HIV/AIDS people. I am enjoying working at the Scalabrini Centre.
Olivier will be assisting us as All-Rounder until the first week of December. We appreciate all of his hard work!
