Initiated by the LDLC Group, the leader in computer and high-tech e-commerce in France, the LDLC Group Foundation, which was formed in 2021, takes stock of its first steps. Sheltered in the Foundation de France, it works in two areas of common interest, namely “environment” and “education and family”. To date, the Groupe LDLC Foundation has already supported 7 projects, all related to youth.
Autonabi – Two days of family testing to explore the cognitive abilities of children with disabilities
A fun training on the brain, for families with neurotypical children
For two days, the young researchers, invited as facilitators, will animate workshops with 3 families, thanks to the brain wave sensors purchased for this purpose, inviting neurotypical children to interact with their cognitive abilities.
Through visual games and visualization of brain waves, they will discover other aspects of themselves and others. The project aims to test the model in the summer of 2022, with the aim of developing a long-term service for the association in regular 1 to 2 sessions per month from the beginning of the 2022 school year.

Right to go to school – welcoming and educating unaccompanied minors while waiting for their education at a school in the Republic
Exiled and isolated minors in France cannot be supported by childhood social assistance until they are able to prove their minority. And the process is sometimes lengthy.
In this context, Droit à l’École has created the descole des Sans École, which allows 60 young people to enter classes by level to prepare for “real education”.
For these teens, the chances of finding a structure, both reassuring and demanding, are learning or re-learning how to get up in the morning, do homework and regain self-esteem.
Ecole des Sans cole provides breakfast and hot lunch for students who read all day. In addition, it organizes extracurricular activities and works to build their future integration with adaptation workshops.
The Foundation’s participation made it possible to care for 40 adolescents for 4 months, excluding structural costs, a normal average time for them to be able to integrate into a school in the Republic.
