Dear all, I'm hoping to be in Caen from fall 2010-spring 2011. I am passionate about volunteer work, but unfortunately I don't know any particular social problems that Caen is faced with. Would anyone who knows the area please give me some insight?
I think you will find that Caen has the usual type of volunteering opportunities: working with the elderly, the mentally disabled, the physically disabled, drug addicts and so on.
If you do not get any specific response here ask around locally when you arrive. The tourist inforation office would be a good place to start. Although it is not touristy information as such they will know what is happening locally.
Alternatively, you could contact the Town Council directly through this site:
(use the contact/remarques tab) and ask for details of any local charitable organisations.
