Saint-Genis-De-Saintonge is a community in the southwest of France. It is situated in the heart of the charentaise countryside, within the proximity of the “Lalande” forest, and not far from the estuary of the Gironde. This community is an historical partner of the association with whom we had begun the first workcamps on the territory of Charente-Maritime, in 1996. After a dozen years of taking place of workcamps on the territory, the community wants to rediscover the intercultural dynamic, stimulated by the workcamps and renovate the school within the town.
