Four new projects supported in France, Senegal and Chad
On Tuesday 24 March, Solidarity Accor’s Selection Committee voted to support four new projects aimed at increasingly encouraging training and occupational insertion of people in difficulty.
At the start of 2015, Accor employees in France and Africa committed to help:
- The association called “Dynamique Emploi” in France: Eveline Berdier from the Senior Management of HotelInvest France wanted to get involved alongside Dynamique Emploi in order to provide job-seeking assistance and tools to young people in the Essonne region. [Find out more about the association]
- The association called “Les Jardins de Lucie” in France: this insertion workshop project contributes to the insertion of people in difficulty by carrying out economic activities, including in particular market gardening. Sophie Verdier and Carole Cursio are supporting the “La Fabrique” project which is aimed at creating a workshop to process organic vegetables into canned products.

- The association “Voûte Nubienne” in Senegal: support has been renewed for this association which provides assistance to young people in difficulty to move into specialist building professions by training them on the traditional technique known as “Nubian Arch” construction.

- The association “Essor” in Chad: strong relations have been developed since 2012 with the Novotel N’Djamena La Tchadienne. Accor employees wanted to renew their support for Essor. In 2015, the association hopes to provide occupational insertion assistance to young people from vulnerable families and develop activities linked to creating very small businesses (e.g., dressmaker, hairdresser or mechanic, etc.).
