The Angoulême community is a community that welcomes 50 companions and families in an old paper factory, nestled on the riverside in a green setting. It is a dynamic community with many projects focused on solidarity with the sending of containers to Emmaus International groups and local solidarity projects. The summer is punctuated by different festivals in the region where companions go. The community has been created by youth camps, so we always have a strong appetite to welcome young people during summer. Solidarity workcamps participants are part of the community group and share their daily life with the companions and our large group of volunteers. It is always a joy and a beautiful experience for us to welcome the solidarity workcamps !
