Contribute to the social progress to the least developed countries*
Aware that these factory workers seek opportunities in their work to improve their personal and professional situations even more, Auchan Retail decided to create “Weave our Future” Foundation under the aegis of the Fondation de France (The France Foundation) in June 2014.
“Weave our Future” is open to companies who share similar intention and conviction and with the will to be involved in social progress. Auchan group has provided the foundation with a €5.5 million endowment over five years, and strives to work, through recognized NGOs, to improve the working and living conditions for workers in the textile and hard goods industries in the Least Developed Countries. With local business leaders, action will be taken in the fields of healthcare, transportation, as well as training.
An innovative approach, “Weave our Future” will strive to play the role of social laboratory with the ability to mobilize other partners around its efforts to tangibly and sustainably improve the living conditions for as many people as possible.
This is the challenge that “Weave our Future” Foundation is ready to take on.
