AGIR (general association of retired employees) is a NGO certified by the French ministry of National Education and by the French ministry of Health, Youth and Sports. It enables newly retired people to devote their skills and experience to projects worldwide, providing a transfer of know-how in the fields of education, health and economic and cultural development. 48% of the missions of AGIR take place in Sub-Saharan Africa.
