  • Description

    Hi there,

    We are Raphael and Cindy. Raphael is from France and Cindy is from the Netherlands. We met a few years ago in London, where we both worked and have been aligned on our travel and 'doing good' plans every since.

    For the last few years we worked with inspiring nonprofits all over the world, and this year January, we took a big step: we gave up our jobs and our securing life, and we took ourselves and our backpacks into the big world to explore, to learn, to wonder and to wander. Traveling for us will be focused on how we can do more good but also how we can explore new places in different ways. Our dream is to build our own social enterprise and make a positive impact in the world where we find out that we are most needed.

    We kicked off our traveling with a few weeks of sailing in the Mediterranean and received our day skipper certification!

    We will be doing our crossover to Asia mid March but have no set plans, we will take it as it goes :).

    Hopefully we can find matches here with hosts where we can be of value and can help make an impact.

  • What skills do you have?

    We both worked with nonprofits for the last 3 years. We focused on digital technology for nonprofits (Raphael focus on customer data management, Cindy on digital marketing technology) so we have worked with a lot of nonprofits who embraced technology to take a next step into the digital world.

    Having worked for a Social Enterprise ourselves, we've done several volunteering activities. From spending weeks in Nicaragua to help children who grow up in coffee farms, to developing new plans on how to decrease human traffic in Nepal, to local volunteering opportunities in the UK.

    Languages: Raphael speaks French and English, Cindy speaks Dutch, English and Spanish.

    Raphael has studied engineering and is the more techy person. Cindy has studied languages and worked in coaching and development as well.

    Both of us have our competent crew and our day skipper certificate, after having spend a few weeks on sea in the Mediteranean.

    A few of Raphaels hobbies are photography and astrology. Cindy loves cooking and writing. We both love traveling and learning new things.
