Jean-François Deschènes, a Quebec co-operator, wanted to share his experience with rural youth in the Third World. He ends up finding a centre where training is provided for local youth in Casamance, in southern Senegal. He settles there with his family for 18 months. By way of his numerous activities with the centre's youth as well as farmers from neighbouring villages, Jean-François Deschènes shares with us his approach to working co-operatively, while the Senegalese involved in these diverse projects speak candidly both in favour and against Jean-François.
