Ouleye Demba Gaye is a lawyer by training and is now a community development facilitator. Originally from Senegal, she is actively involved as an activist for the climate cause. She stands out for her sociable nature and open mind. After spending 2 years studying law at UCAD in Dakar, she joined the NGO YMCA (Young Men Christian Association) Senegal through the ICS (International Citizen Service) program as a volunteer for 3 months. At the end of this mission, she evolved as an area supervisor and money transfer service opening agent. Always driven by the desire to help and serve, she returned to the YMCA as a project facilitator within a prison establishment. It was there that she benefited from training in public speaking, management, and administration. These skills allowed him, for 4 years, to provide training and coordinate activities in collaboration with his target audiences and development partners. In 2022, a new volunteering challenge presented itself to her, and she took it up by becoming a volunteer with CorpsAfrica/Senegal. After completing training in PST, she was assigned to Macouda, in Casamance, where she strengthened the capacities of her community in creating sources of income. She also provided training on making reusable sanitary napkins to young girls, facilitated access to opportunities for young people, and provided assistance in procedures related to civil status and mobile courts. At the end of her service, she collaborated with her community to facilitate the installation of a mini solar borehole for the benefit of the local population, thereby contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. In addition to her commitment as a volunteer, Ouleye is also an active climate activist. She participates in numerous meetings on climate, notably Economy Week 2022 and the World Water Forum, and leads local actions in favor of the fight against climate change. She is also a member of Ecolotrip/Senegal. After her volunteer service, she held the position of administrative secretary in an NGO for 6 months, before joining CorpsAfrica again for a new challenge. This year, she decided to commit again by joining the CorpsAfrica volunteer exchange program, this time in Morocco, looking for new challenges and, above all, an increased positive impact in the life of communities reception.
