What did we do ?
Each year (and it may remind you of memories of students), ACF educates students through a Race Against Hunger for primary, secondary and high schools.
This race collects between 3 and 5 million benefits each year. In Paris Aera, it represents 350 establishments, or 1/3 of the national collection. To help students understand why the race is important, ACF volunteers intervene a few months before to help students understand their missions and the impact of the money raised.
14 of our Dataikers volunteered and dedicated at least half a day in order to inform & mobilize students directly in their classes around a theme for which they have been previously trained by ACF team.
« If my colleague Alexandre de B. never had told me that it was the collection days of the « Restos du Coeur » I would have skipped it completely! Me and a few colleagues spent half a day in a supermarket to motivate people to donate first necessity items for people in need. Socially eye-opening and very useful for this charitable organisation, I will do it again! »Hugo S.
« Helping collecting food for « Les Restos du Coeur » association was a great experience! It’s a very nice opportunity to have fun and connect with people while selflessly helping others. »Jakub C.
