Encouraging people to hand down knowledge
We are committed to supporting the way of life in the areas surrounding our airports (Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget) by improving the daily lives of community residents.
Projects supported in 2015
Our foundation works alongside local, socially-orientated associations who encourage social development and improve community life.
Here are some of the projects supported in 2015:
Val de Marne Emergency Assistance (AUVM)
Since 2001, AUVM, an emergency housing association, has been highlighting the contradictions and pitfalls in the social emergency system which stigmatises and demotivates more than allowing for integration. Our Foundation is helping AUVM, with the assistance of the Mayor of Orly, to renovate a building known as “La Ferme Marais” based in Orly with the purpose of providing shelter for those in high risk situations.

Maison des Jonglages Association
The primary goal of Maison des Jonglages is to make everyone aware of the current richness and diversity in the art of juggling.
Residents in certain ZUS areas in La Corneuve have little access to artistic outlets where girl and boys can thrive and meet up.
This intergenerational project, which takes place mainly on Wednesdays and during school holidays, provides people from various backgrounds with a new perspective, an opportunity to develop a new outlook on this art and their town, La Courneuve.
