"Hotel Maid Training"
Promofemmes is a French non-profit association formed in 1994 with the aim at providing migrant women with social, cultural and employment support as part of facilitating their personal and family integration into French society.
In December 2017, 3 employees from Bordeaux including Marie-Françoise Becerro (Regional HR), participated to a Raid in Cambodia, and decided to associate a solidarity action by raising funds for the association Promofemmes.
With AccorHotels doubling the amount collected, a total of 2140 euros were donated to the association: which means more than 100 hours of "Hotel Maid" training for the beneficiaries.
Soli'dames team during the Amazone Raid in 2017
We decided to participate in the Amazones' Raid in May 2016. The 3 of us were already runners and it seemed natural for us to embark on this challenge together. Very quickly, we decided to support Promofemmes which helps the integration of migrant women in France.
The Raid was a unique experience, both both on a human and sports point of view. But the carity aspect of this accomplishment gives it an even stronger dimension. We hope that our action impacted positively the visibility of Promofemmes but also triggered a taste for adventure for AccorHotels women.
