SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

J’ai été une Jeune Volontaire des Nations Unies aux îles Comores pendant un peu moins d’un an. L’archipel des Comores est situé sur la côte sud-est de l’Afrique ; le pays voisin à l’est est le Mozambique tandis que le Madagascar est situé sur sa côte nord-ouest.

Durant mon affectation, j’étais chargée d’appuyer la communication au Programme des Nations Unies pour le développement (PNUD).

SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

I am based in Dakar and part of a dedicated team of five people working towards the promotion and protection of human rights across the 14 West African States. A challenging and fascinating mission in a few words is but a gross understatement.

My area of responsibility includes economic, social and cultural rights of the local people, the rights of people on the move, especially asylum seekers, as well the human rights situation in Niger. This is especially where I saw my mission bringing the United Nations closer to the people we serve.

My assignment as a UN Youth Volunteer in Youth Participation in Governance and Peacebuilding with the United Nations Development Programme is based in Ukraine. For the first six months, I was working in Kiev on business conferences and entrepreneurship promotion through targeted motivation campaigns – something that didn’t really perk my interest. It was like being in a world full of abbreviations, stacks of files and papers.
