Supporting Tissons la Solidarité’s training activities for women in difficulty

Tissons la Solidarité Network was formed in 2004 by the charity, Secours Catholique. It now unites and runs 70 structures aimed at integration through economic activities, whose main objective is helping persons in difficulty return to work.

In 2014, Solidarity AccorHotels supported the training of 280 women on communication techniques with a view to increasing the profits of the 14 ‘La Griffe’ structures, a brand sponsored by Christian Lacroix.

In December 2016, the Pullman Paris teams held a Christmas tree decoration contest for charity among its travel agency partners. The winning agency, Lafayette Travel, received a €1,000 cheque, which it decided to give back to Tissons la Solidarité for its employment assistance activities. Solidarity AccorHotels matched this donation to give the association a total of €2,000 in support of its “Sales Assistant” and “Tailor” professional training courses. These training courses are recognised by industry professionals and help 60% of the women who finish the course find long-term employment.
