Structis has donated 100 computers to the Restos du Cœur in Yvelines. Julie Adiceam is the sponsor of this project supported by the Terre Plurielle foundation. Testimonials.
You are the one who instigated this computer donation project for the Restos du Cœur in Yvelines. Can you tell us more about it?
The Yvelines Restos du Cœur branch employs people in the process of joining the active labour pool who take apart and recondition almost 800 computers each year. In times like these, when budgets are limited and charities are greatly affected, Structis and Terre Plurielle’s donation was very much appreciated. The 100 computers will be distributed among all the Restos du Cœur charities in France.
Why did you decide to sponsor the Yvelines branch of the Restos du Cœur?
I wanted to organize labour and social actions benefiting a charity in the Yvelines department of France. It all began in Spring 2014 with Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France, Délégations & Partenariats Publics, where we organised a collection during Sustainable Development week. I then wanted to further my commitment by submitting an application to the Terre Plurielle foundation to finance the purchase of a cold compartment—as their refrigerated truck had been stolen—and 8 refrigerated displays for the distribution centres in Yvelines. The project received €14,354 in funding.
You have also encouraged Bouygues Energies & Services to embark upon this adventure with you. On which project?
We have worked on accompanying people in their efforts to enter the active workforce. Two people were welcomed on work placements in Challenger and in Australia to help them with their transition to the work world. I am proud of the extent of participation from all entities in this project. I wasn’t expecting the project to be completed so quickly after filing the application. This experience is very enriching and I would encourage staff to take part in the adventure!
