Social project: building a preschool center – Part 1

A month ago, Mr. Pierre-Michel Pons, General Manager of Lydia Ludic Burkina Faso, was invited to the Voluntary Work Day in the French Institute of Ouagadougou as a guest of honor to convey the commitment to social projects of Lydia Ludic.

Following the event, Lydia Ludic Burkina Faso, a subsidiary of Grupo Pefaco, decided to take part in the financing of a social project. Many projects were assessed within the following weeks, until on November 19th, the jury (including Mr. Pons amongst others) eventually selected a social project.

Damien Delahaye, volunteer at Solidarités International and responsible of the project of “building a preschool center in an underprivileged area of Ouagadougou” with the association Enfants & Développement, was the one who got the grant from France Volontaires and Lydia Ludic.

The parties sealed the final agreement in Koubri, a town nearby Ouagadougou, binding them to the development and the achievement of the project. Through this gesture, Lydia Ludic Burkina Faso confirms its commitment to the social policy of its founders, Messrs. Francis Perez and Olivier Cauro.
