Our team

IRIS Mundial has evolved and expanded its team over the years. Indeed, from 2001 to 2014, the organization was managed on a volunteer basis mainly by Dr. Jean-Pierre Tchang, optometrist. In 2015, IRIS Mundial hired its first permanent employee. Since 2021, IRIS Mundial has two employees.

Julie Roegiers - General manager
Julie has a university degree in community economic development. In the past, she worked for four years for the Belgian Red Cross and nine years for Handicap International. She has also carried out international cooperation missions in many countries, including: North Korea, Senegal, Mali, Benin, Niger, Haiti, Colombia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Burundi, Afghanistan, Iraq and DRC. The latter also sat on the board of directors of an NGO for nine years.
Sarah-Eve Gonnet - Partnerships and programs officer

Sarah-Eve holds a master’s degree in Community Development and a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. She spent 3 years in Cuba, where she was in charge of international cooperation programs for Cuba and Costa Rica.

Obviously, the general management could not carry out its work without the contribution of invaluable volunteers who are involved in various committees at the level of communications, financing, projects, security, material management, strategy, etc. .
