Putting a “Solidarity Garage” on a professional footing, to provide better training and work integration opportunities for people in difficulty

Solidarauto 49—a French non-profit created in 2010—manages a Garage Solidaire (Solidarity Garage) and a work integration enterprise with the goals of:

  • Enabling people in economic difficulty to buy a car at lower cost;
  • Enabling people with social and work integration issues to benefit from training in motor mechanics and to find a job.

In 2014, Solidarity Accor is supporting the development of the “Solidarity Garage”, allowing for the creation of 3 new work integration places, with a further 2 places by 2016.

It’s an enriching human experience, both because of the people we get to meet and because of the sense of having helped provide tangible support for people in difficulty near to home.
