On June 5, 2001, Jean-Christophe CRESPEL, Auray Aun, director of the Cambodian NGO Krousar Thmey (new Family in Khmer), and François-Xavier TRAMOND, professor of scholarships for NGO improvement studies at Sciences Po Paris, founded the NGO called “Humanitarian World Tour.”
The statement by Auray and Jean-Christophe is as follows: “if the NGOs manage to raise funds, they have more difficulty communicating their impacts, and what they accomplish through donations.” So, why not take advantage of new means of communication to see, picture, film and post online what the money given is used for? This would provide support to NGOs, inspire volunteerism, raise public awareness of international solidarity, build donor loyalty, and improve accountability.
The project, in this case, takes the form of a world tour called Nomads on Line and is based on 3 pillars: travel, solidarity and new technologies.
The journey will be taking the two participants to 20 countries in Asia and Latin America to meet with more than 20 NGO partners.
The NGO receives different forms of support including, but not limited to, those of the Ministry of Foreign and European affairs, the Institut Pasteur, the National geographical institute, the Société Générale, the Guide of the backpacker, new frontiers, etc.
The project has been a success with more than 150 000 visitors to the site and a strong media coverage including M6, TV5, France 3, la chaîne voyages, Europe 1 with Laurent, RTL 2, Europe 2, NRJ, major reports, etc. affecting several million people.
A film will be produced to spread information in schools to raise awareness of the importance of education in the World:
