After a career of more than 15 years in Marketing and Communication, Caroline took a close look at the powerful media offered by Internet and she trained as a Multimedia Projects Developer. As she adores travelling, it was during an extended trip to Asia that she encountered many local community organisations who were suffering from lack of communication and unable to obtain the means of continuing with their actions. While, at the same time, powerful organisations were finding it difficult to use up all their budgets. Via PLANET’NGO, she hopes to contribute to a better balance in developmental aid by highlighting the smallest NGOs’ projects.
There at the outset of the PLANET’NGO project in 2007, Caroline is the President founder of this community organisation and is in charge of its development. She lives partly in France and partly in Thailand.
Composer-Producer-Publisher in the audiovisual field, Joshua divides his professional life between Paris and Marseille. Numerous trips to the four corners of the planet, both in a professional and in a private capacity, opened his eyes to the difficulties encountered by numerous small NGOs who are excluded from the ” charity ball “. He was very much attracted by Caroline’s project, which seemed so obvious and yet so novel, and he accepted, when she asked, to take on the role as President of the association and to bring it to the attention of institutions and partners. After four years, he became Honorary President.
After several years working in commerce and insurance, Latitia felt that she needed to feel of use to society and moved on to a new professional horizon. : this time on the social side. However, it was while she was studying to be a social worker that she grew more and more interested in the NGO world. As she adores travelling, she combined the pleasure of discovery with this interest while working abroad as a trainee in a Senegalese NGO. Following this experience, the idea of getting involved, understanding, making the most of opportunities or even being disoriented by countries, cultures, landscapes or populations throughout the world, all these became factors for personal enrichment for her. Difference, lack, too much, too little … words that don’t have the same meaning depending on where one is in the world or in one’s life. During one of these trips, Latitia met Caroline and realised that they shared the same philosophy about aid and human dignity. Her commitment to PLANET’NGO became clear and she was elected Secretary General of the Association in August 2011.
Laurence has a Masters in Management Science and a DESS (Post-graduate diploma) in Management Control. For 10 years, she worked in various financial areas, both on the operational side and in more functional positions. After the birth of her two children, she wished to make a career break for two main reasons: she wanted to be able to take care of her children and to offer her skills to some humanitarian cause. The PLANET’NGO concept interested her right from the word go and she has been taking care of the financial management of this association for a little more than a year now, in the role of Treasurer.
