I got to know the Association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME) through Oumar Kane who was one of the members of the team that I had the pleasure of leading for many years. He told me about his association, I found the project to be quite interesting and touching.

Each of us, we give a day of our work to work on an association including ACTUME, then I also participated in the 2014 health caravan if my memories are good.

Jean-Philippe RYKIEL, Administrator

Jean-Philippe RYKIEL, Singer composer

It is following two articles that I had written in the early 2010s, on my encounters, at the age of fourteen and in the same week, with Stevie Wonder and Franck Zappa, that my friend Gérald Athanase suggested to me to ensure that these documents, which he found exceptional, do not fall into oblivion because of the permanent demand for "fresh" news driven by Facebook on which I have them had originally posted (good luck to anyone who wants to find them today, buried under mountains of other publications!).

I have had the privilege, during my life, to meet a large number of exceptional beings, and to be able to testify to events, places, cultures and people whose visibility is low, or even non-existent on the Web. Learn more consult my biography

Ousseynou KANE, Head of the Le Havre branch

Ousseynou KANE, Trainer and OFII referent at the FODENO Le Havre training center.

ACTUME, I have known her for over 15 years. Its president, Oumar KANE and a national of the same village, impressed me with the humanitarian work he is carrying out in the direction of needy populations in terms of access to health rights.

In addition, the projects carried by actume are a perfect illustration of North / South cooperation. I saw in this structure a bridge connecting two banks on which we convey hope and when we say hope we say life.

After discussion with Mr KANE Oumar, an ACTUME branch was created in 2016 in Le Havre SEINE MARITME REGION OF NORMANDY composed of 7 members.

Oumar DIAGNE, Deputy Secretary General

Oumar DIAGNE, Lawyer & writer

I was born on the banks of the Senegal River where I spent happy days. My childhood was marked by the atmosphere and solidarity that reigned in my village, Tékane. These beautiful memories have never left my mind and mark my entire life.

After my primary studies in Tékane, I went to Rosso in order to continue my secondary studies before going to learn law at the university in Algeria.

After Algiers, I returned to Mauritania and teach at the National School of Social and Administrative Training (ENFACOS) of Nouakchott, Then, I was seconded to the Ministry of the Civil Service to the Minister's adviser before being appointed head of service studies and litigation, at the level of the management of the Public Service.

Racial events in 1989 forced me to leave Mauritania for France where I worked in the social and humanitarian sector before plunging into the world of books. I also studied social economy and computer science in France. For more information, see: CVOumarDIAGNE

Ousmane M. KANE, Administrator

Ousmane Mamadou KANE, residence manager at adoma-CDC Habitat

I was born in Tékane. I also grew up in this village. When we were young it was teeming with life. We were divided into different age groups. Each group tried to do better than the others. Our elders had taught us to be of service to the community. This is how, since my early childhood, I have participated in community life. After Tékane, I continued my secondary studies at the Lycée de Rosso, then university at the Higher Scientific Institute of Nouakchott from where I obtained a Masters in Renewable Energies in 1990. After two years of floating, I was admitted to the AGRHYMET Sub-regional Center in NIAMEY in Niger where I obtained a diploma in hydrological engineer.

Upon my return, I joined the Hydrogie Service within the Directorate of Environment and Rural Development attached to the Ministry of Rural Development. I was in charge of the management of the hydrological database.

I arrived in France on December 15, 2000. I did several jobs. Currently, I am responsible for residence at adoma - CDC Habitat. We manage hostels for FTM migrant workers and social residences.

When ACTUME was created, I naturally joined the project. Because it was the extension of what I was already doing, in Mauritania for, Tékane. At the same time as my commitment to ACTUME, I am the general secretary of the Association of nationals of TORO in France (ART), which has more than 300 members. This association aims to pool forces and fully takes care of the repatriation of its members in the event of death to their country of origin.

Thierno Ousmane SY, Administrator

Thierno Ousmane SY, Social worker

I was born in Mederdra in 1970. The first hours of my youth were spent in R'kiz. I landed in Tékane, my father's home village at the age of 11 when my whole family came back to settle there permanently after my father retired.

It was in Tékane that I completed my primary schooling. My secondary studies, I did them in Rosso, regional capital of Trarza. This city is located in the South of Mauritania on the banks of the Senegal River.

After obtaining the Bac in Modern Letters, I joined Nouakchott, the capital of the country, to continue my university studies. Thus, I enrolled in the Faculty of Legal and Economic Sciences where I obtained a Master in Private Law in 1998.

The end of this course in Mauritania was followed by a two-year break, punctuated by short professional experiences in law firms and NGOs. Following this path, I chose the path of exile to France where I have lived since 2000. I am currently practicing my profession in a residential center as a social worker. A job that gives me real fulfillment. Being a Social Worker, my commitment to ACTUME fits perfectly with my professional activities.

I support the projects of the ACTUME Association since its installation in Île de France in 2011. I participated in the wide range of activities of the association.

Being from the area of primary intervention of this organization, the idea of providing continuous and effective support for the benefit of a population completely abandoned in a medical desert and without resources could not leave me indifferent. This initiative is now bearing fruit and tangible results, anchored in the social environment of this area, as well as in the consciousness of its inhabitants. Also, ACTUME is an association that develops in addition to its projects, the opening of hearts so that each human being finds his place within the community, including those who feel marginalized. All of these have fueled my motivation and my continued commitment.

I am the President of an association of Mauritanian women of the river (AFMAF). In our activities, we have accompanied the Mauritanian deportees in Mali and Senegal as well as widows and orphans, in Mauritania and elsewhere, thanks to our own resources and the help of partners.

Denis CAMP, Administrator

Denis CAMP, Entrepreneur

I met Oumar in 2019 at a small medical fair in Courbevoie and I was won over by his commitment to the association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME).

As the head of a company distributing respiratory medical devices, I initially decided to support him by providing some equipment then I continued on a personal basis as well.

Today, at almost 72 years old, I am going to leave my companies for a well-deserved retirement to which it would be good 😊 for me to give meaning...

Who am I ?

Graduated from higher studies in computer science and organization, I have carried out all my career in computer engineering, medical and very often internationally, mainly in Africa.

Born in Algiers, from a family of Spanish origin, in the country for 4 generations, I have always been attracted and impressed by Africa. Unconsciously my journey has led me there several times. Maghreb and French-speaking Africa, I think I know all the countries having been there or having worked there.

I believe that I can bring something to ACTUME through this experience of project management in the medical sector and in Africa. Beyond that, the pleasure and honor of being with Oumar, Being exceptional, motivates me a lot.

Stuart CULSHAW, Communications Project Manager 

I met Oumar Kane in 2011 during the IBMers Solidaires day and I was immediately attracted by his project.

So, for more than 12 years, I have been using my skills in website development and writing to help ACTUME boost its online presence and better communicate its activities and its history.

Over the years, I have discovered the wealth and commitment of the Mauritanian diaspora in France and am proud to have been able to contribute, alongside equally dedicated volunteers, to the success of numerous ambitious projects aimed at improving the health of inhabitants of the Tékane region in Mauritania.

Who am I ?

Of English origin, I completed part of my studies at the Bordeaux business school before moving to France. I lived and worked there for almost my entire career as a technical writer, corporate journalist, and communications project manager, including 15 years at IBM France.

I thrive in multicultural work environments and actively seek opportunities to use my communication and website development skills for good. I have initiated and continue to contribute to numerous community projects in France and abroad, particularly in Africa.

By joining the ACTUME Board of Directors, I look forward to continuing to support the development of ACTUME and supporting its initiatives in the field of solidarity health, alongside Oumar and this extraordinary community.
