Rehabilitation through vocational training for those who suffer from sensorial deficiency during their profession. support the integration of children in classes through institutional education. Volunteer tasks Volunteers’ rolesare to help the educators, the teachers or represent them in diverse activities such as reexplanation and rehearsal courses. They will help the teachers in order to make students assimilate the courses given to them. Volunteers will particularly take care of the students because they have difficulty in keeping lessons, they will also follow them in classes in order to spell the written words to them. From Monday to Friday, volunteers will help transcribe the examination papers, didactic documents, the matrix in Braille; they will rehear and explain the lessons that the disabled have received together with their valid friends. Volunteers take an active part in pedagogic supervision which is daily done by the teachers.
The volunteer will be living with a host family that will provide board and lodging.

In order to be efficient, the volunteer should be patient and less impulsive. Having some basic knowledge about pedagogy and psychology of the handicapped in general and sensorial ones in particular would be a fundamental advantage for the volunteer. He will be ease at his work if he has listening mind and patience. The volunteer who has knowledge in English, French, German, physics, mathematics, would be needed since he will rehearse the handicapped in the courses in order to allow them to compensate for their sensorial shortage and face the constraints connected to their situation of handicap. The knowledge of particular language of the community is not compulsory since the courses are delivered for the most part in French, in English and in German. Thus, the volunteer benefits from French course at the head office of the NGO “CAMPAGNE DES HOMMES” before being initiated by the teachers in pedagogic techniques of handicapped persons and Braille writing. The project does not require a given age or a particular sex on behalf of volunteers. The sensorial handicapped students, especially the blind have no preference to sex and even they hardly appreciate age unless they reach the level of advanced knowledge of understanding things without seeing the attitudes of people. Nevertheless, volunteers of 17 years old and more are well recommended because of the maturity of their mind.
