Construction of a school canteen for underprivileged children

SOS Villages d’Enfants allows brothers and sisters who cannot live with their parents to experience the joy of growing up together in a family atmosphere. It offers the stable emotional and educational surroundings children need for their development.

The Accor Foundation supported in 2008, SOS Village d’Enfants, and funded the construction of a school canteen. The construction plans were realized by employees from the ibis Douala hotel and with the technical help from Marc Aubry, Technical Director for AccorHotels Africa. Since the inauguration of the canteen in November 2009, more than 150 children have been able to enjoy at least one meal a day.

* In 2013, the Accor Foundation became Solidarity Accor.
