Djeghim, Chaouki


Djeghim Chaouki photographer and Algerian speleologist, born July 12, 1969.
I have been practicing caving since 1986, member of the Constantine caving club since 1987 which became an association in 1988. I participated several times for the creation of the Algerian federation of caving but unfortunately it still has not been successful. The black decade in Algeria disrupted my work in caving, I did not resume the activity until 2009.
Administrator of the Algerian Speleologists page on Facebook (Spéléologues Algériens). I create and participate in the creation of several clubs in Algeria and especially in Constantine, my city.
I received the training of international federal initiator in speleology in March 2018 during the training grouping international federal initiator in speleology by the FFS in Bejaia in Algeria.
All my efforts this time are to protect the historic caves of the State of Constantine and to train a team of young people specializing in the science of cave discovery.
