Awareness Campaign, Paris Area

 

Awareness Campaign in school, mid-February to April

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.

 

 

Some facts

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.

 

« Taking part to this initiative was a really great experience and I am glad Dataiku supports its employees in doing so. Dedicating only one day in the year is a very small effort but can definitely make a difference and you feel it when you see the amount of food and products collected at the end of the day. I am looking forward to doing much more with Les restos du coeur in order to support people who need it »

« 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! »

« 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. »
