An entrepreneur at heart, Samlé-Gnogbo Zouzoua is the founder of several companies in France and the United States. A former high-level athlete, he competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics, which stands for one of the best experiences of his life.
He has always been attracted to the community scene and that is how he came to launch his first association ever, Petite d’Aide, in 2006, in France. Its goal was to help young people and adults by providing them with homework assistance and French classes respectively.
Samlé-Gnogbo wishes to share and contribute his experience, his dynamism and enthusiasm to Park-Extension’s transformation.

With a BA in English Literature from Concordia University, Qurat-ul arrived in Parc-Extension at least fifteen years ago. She loves the neighborhood for all its natural beauty and multicultural diversity.
Qurat-ul began to get involved in the community scene during her university years. She appreciates initiatives that may appear minor to some who observe them from the outside, but which actually make a huge difference even in the life of a single person.
“Parc-Extension is a neighborhood in need of love,” said my mentor and anonymous co-worker.
