The week of solidarity was a success because 180 colleagues participated in 10 different projects in the domains of the social integration, the poverty, the childhood and the youth, the solidarity, the nature and the environment.
The collaborators of Eiffage Benelux made furniture from wooden pallets recycled in favour of the association The Anchor (Solidarity Pallets), renovated several premises (Betonne Jeugd, School The Small Source), cooked with and for young (Habbekrats) and contributed to the environment by maintaining diverse nature reserves and forests (Natagora and Natuurpunt).
We would like to thank all the organizations for having welcomed the volunteers of Eiffage and for having made of this Week of Solidarity, a big success.
