REVES

To bring a spark of magic and a gleam of hope in the life of seriously ill children, such is the goal that the organization REVES seeks to achieve. REVES makes the dreams come true of children that suffer from illnesses said to have a "reserved diagnosis". This medical specificity includes illnesses like cancer, aids or cystic fibrosis.

Agathe met Frederic PIGNON

Agathe had already met Frédéric PIGNON, a equine handler. Her dream became a reality!

Now, have a some information about how this dream comes true :

Humble and smiling Magali and Fréderic PIGNON welcome Agathe very warmly.

On Saturday morning, Agathe begin in succession with a magnificent lesson of training in several horses. Agathe has the eyes which shine 

The strong wind obliges Agathe to stop a while. Horses are shy. After a meal all together Magali and Frédéric take Agathe to visit THE ISLE ON THE SORGUE, a little city in South of France with a mysterious source and a undeniable charm.

On Sunday, Mister DELGADO, suggests Agathe "releasing" horses in the meadow. Agathe see arriving on her about sixty mares and their foals. No rather strong word if it is not impressive, moving. 

Agathe returns to the Riding school for a lesson of training by Frédéric. He choose at first two standards Phébus and Paulus, magnificent frison. This horse is Agathe's passion which possesses one.

The first approach for Frédéric it is at first the game. He tries above all to give the envy to the horse to work. It is the real complicity. Agathe enters into the spirit of the game of the training. 

Magali and Frédéric give Agathe a magnificent lesson of training: sweetness, understanding, love and respect for the horse.

But the end of the day comes so quickly  ! Agathe don't want to go back to home. But she has. So 
Agathe promises to see again each other soon.

Agathe takes the train and she see all pictures of these two days with horses and Frédéric Pignon.

POSTCARD: Project Site Visit

A visit to the Reves office near Lyon!
A visit to the Reves office near Lyon!

Shonali Banerjee and Aliza Appelbaum are In-The-Field Representatives for GlobalGiving.  They are visiting projects in Morocco, Spain and France.  Here is their most recent "postcard" from France: 

On August 10, 2012, Aliza and I had the pleasure of visiting Association Rêves at their office outside of Lyon, France.  Rêves, an organization very similar to the Make A Wish Foundation, operates exclusively in France, helping seriously ill children under the age of 18 realize their dreams.  We met with Aurélie Tortosa, who coordinates requests and organizes the execution of the dreams, and her colleague Virginie Degletagne, who handles administrative and accounting duties. 

Unfortuantely we were not able to meet with the patients that had their dreams realized by Rêves, but we were thrilled to tour the Association's office, learn a great deal about how the organization operates and see some truly adorable photos of children's dreams coming true with trips to EuroDisney, meeting internationally known celebrities and even feeding a baby panther! 

Aliza and I learned that Rêves receives hundreds of requests every year, and these "dream submissions" are realized on a rolling basis, often depending on the health of the child in question.  Most of the children get to spend time at EuroDisney with members of their family, but children with very specific requests often get to meet their favorite celebrity (Celine Dion! Robert Pattinson!), take a trip to New York City, or get a kiss from a new friend at French sea world (photo below!).

Aliza and I were thrilled to hear that the Association's project "Meet Frederick Pignon" is fully funded and that the team is working tirelessly to make young Agathe's dream of meeting the famous equestrian come true as soon as possible. The ladies informed us that Agathe will in fact meet Mr. Pignon in September 2012, so we are really looking forward to seeing some wonderful photos from the visit! We also can't wait to see the wonderful projects Rêves will post in the near future!
