After studying agriculture, sociology and rural development, Benoit worked as a technical facilitator for an organization supporting rural families in the Brazilian Amazon for two and a half years. He then made the decision to join SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL where he spent four and a half years on the ground as food security project manager (Afghanistan and Indonesia) and in charge of mission support (Angola, the Ivory Coast).
Since returning to France in 2008, he has been working in organic farming: after a position as technical facilitator for an organization of organic farmers in Corsica, he set himself up as a local artisan baker in his home region (Maine et Loire).
He has been a member of the Board since 2009 and he looks forward to continuing to lend his support – in terms of strategic, organisational and technical orientations – especially in Afghanistan, a mission very close to his heart.
The choices made by the organization are really important to me and I’m very keen to extend my humanitarian commitment to SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL, an organization which has taught me a great deal both personally and professionally
