ASSOCIATION: Sèm' Ta Route presents its new director, Laïla Freedom Agnès


At the beginning of February 2023, the Sèm' Ta Route association in Quartier d'Orléans organized a first discussion meeting with the inhabitants in order to hear the needs felt by the population of the district.

It is in the premises of the social center of Quartier d'Orléans that the Sèm' Ta Route team, made up of Marie-Claire d'Alexis, facilitator and mediator, Marie-Chantal Monperousse, administrative assistant, and Suzy Larmony, assistant direction, took the opportunity to present to the assembly of a dozen people Laïla Freedom Agnès, the new director of the social center whose presidency is ensured by Aline Freedom. The objective of such a meeting, in addition to establishing direct contact between the representatives of the association and the inhabitants of Quartier d'Orléans, was to remind the population that the work of the social center is to for people but also, and above all, with them. Thanks to the active participation of the inhabitants aware of the needs of each and strong of their skills, the association Sèm Ta Route intends to widen the scope of its actions focused on parenthood and organize activities in accordance with the aspirations of the population.

At the top of the list of complaints expressed by the inhabitants, the creation of a clinic open 24/7, with, within the team, staff trained in first aid living in QO. Another lack pointed out by the assembly is mobility: the buses generally remain on the main road without serving the adjacent streets, with random timetables and waiting areas without protection from the sun and rain. A library, a space dedicated to the arts, a neighborhood service for seniors, the installation of public benches and outdoor lighting are also on the list of needs of the population.

Just like a swimming pool to compensate for the number of young people who cannot swim, a computer room available to facilitate online procedures for adults and children's homework, shared gardens to pass on to the new generation the basics of agriculture and self-production of food, essential on an island territory. Sèm Ta Route has already developed this aspect with two shared gardens that it maintains with the children of the neighborhood. Other meetings of this type will happen again, also inviting Semsamar and Jimmy Gumbs, representative of the council of Quartier d'Orléans. Sèm' Ta Route is also calling on the population to share their ideas on a new name (as well as a new logo) for the association. _VX
