AS PART OF A SUCCESSFUL NINE-YEAR PARTNERSHIP
between the Entreprendre pour Apprendre Foundation, BNP Paribas Cardif and the BNP Paribas Foundation, based on the Mini Entreprise programme, have been working with young people throughout 2019, and at Study days in seven different regions, from Occitanie to the Grand-Est. They delivered workshops for 16 to 25-year-olds from different professional sectors, by drawing on the expertise gained from developing their entrepreneurial projects.
THANKS TO THE BNP PARIBAS ACCESSART 25 PROGRAMME,
in 2019, 3,000 young people aged 17-25 were invited to the Royal Academy of Arts in London for three special evening events, in- volving various activities and workshops: I m delighted that BNP Paribas made it possible for these young people to visit my exhibition for free. This initiative is reaching an audience that does not generally have access to this kind of event. I hope that this initial experience will encourage them to reflect on themselves and the world, stated Sculptor, Antony Gormley.
THE FIGHT AGAINST EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY MUST
begin at the source, which is why the BNP Paribas India Foun- dation, in partnership with the Teach for India association, has awarded a grant to students from some of the best universities in the country. In return, these students teach pupils from di- sadvantaged backgrounds for two years. This awareness of ine- qualities has a lasting impact on the commitments and actions of these future managers, with as many as 66% deciding to work in the social or education sector after this experience.
In India, the two-year Fellowship programme, for future leaders raises awareness about the problem of educating the most disadvantaged children.
As part of the Dream Up programme, in partnership with the Fundación Baila por la Infancia, 45 children from deprived neighbourhoods in Madrid, attended an introductory dance course during the school year, with Choreographer Abou Lagraa, a patron of the programme.
