Together to raise funds
Spend time & collect money belong to the company culture and all employees are involved in getting money from 3 ways:
Marketing operations with our customers & suppliers participation, such as: X products bought = 1€ collected for LFE!
Internal events: hot dog, book, cake sales, second hand market, karaoke, Christmas market..., the employees from all over the subs organise and take part in local LFE actions
Donations: ad hoc or monthly cash donations from employees. The sums donated are then doubled by Lyreco
For each project, we select an international NGO focusing on children education, and a specific action plan is defined based on objectives depending on the local context. The final goal of each project is to maintain our actions on a lifelong perspective. For that, a local steering committee, with teachers, heads of the village and parents, is set up in each village and thus they are responsible of their own education project.
2015 - 2018 Madagascar

To rebuild and renovate school facilities
To improve the quality of education by training teachers and equipping schools
