Inclusion

Supporting initiatives that help people living in poverty.

Alongside measures taken by government bodies, thousands of organisations, associations and individuals (professionals and volunteers) work to combat poverty. As a Foundation, we hold very dear the desire to play our part in building greater solidarity in the world.

Our activities

  • we provide financial support to associations and organisations that offer help to those living in poverty
  • we identify new forms of poverty through grassroots information and observation and we test new approaches to fighting poverty
  • we implement new methods of listening to people who are disadvantaged or who feel they have been downgraded in society
  • and we conduct advocacy among government bodies and citizens to attract their attention to the realities and needs of those living in poverty.

Inclusion is part of the programme Social justice & poverty
