Overseas territories wish to save their heritage and highlight their culture. C.H.A.M association acts at the request of the State, of local authorities or local associations.
Depending on local needs, the association sets different types of worksites : training worksites, integration worksites, expertise missions...
C.H.A.M association has four overseas offices :
Operations in Guyana started in 2010. They took place on buildings linked to the colonial era and penal colonies, first on abandoned houses that belong to the French coastal conservation agency (Artur and Loyola houses, in Rémire-Montjoly, Cayenne) then on the Salvation's Islands.
Those interventions were organised with local associations in the filds of archeology or social integration. They also had the financial support of State services (for youth, health, sports, culture and heritage) and of the CNES (National Centre for Spatial Studies).

In the 1990s the association organised training worksites for technical and educational activity leaders. They took place mostly in Guadaloupe and were supported by local State services for youth, sports and culture.
In 2009, the French coastal conservation agency requested the association to restore the suger refinery of Anse Couleuvre in Martinique. C.H.A.M then worked with a local associaiton dedicated to social and professional integration.
In 2011 a second action was engaged on the suger refinery of Fond Moulin, Grand Rivière, in northern Martinique. It was a training worksite organised with civic service volunteers.
