Our mission is to keep the children away from the dangers of the streets. La Banda de Musica helps underprivileged populations in a marginalised neighbourhood of Zaachila Oaxaca, south of Mexico, mainly by providing children with access to cultural activities and in particular to musical education. The goal is to help promote an original form of education, which includes social advancement, strengthening of ties , and a reduction of violence. To achieve this goal, we organize gifts of musical instruments. We raise funds to continue building the music school and pay the salaries of the local music teachers. We dispatch expert musicians or luthiers on site to teach and inspire students.. This exchange of skills will offer projects of lasting autonomy. The association is helping set up repair workshops for musical instruments, and needs tools to assist in the training of young people who can study music and repair their instruments as well. We also offer scholarships to young musicians who demonstrate an ability to study and wish to continue learning music at a university level. A symphony orchestra has been created and is the pride of the neighbourhood THE SANTA CECILIA ORCHESTRA. For the group of children involved, music means cohesion, education and hope.

We are shaping a movement to ensure young people affected by displacement thrive through safe sport Sport has the power to have the most incredible impact on young lives. We are uniting leaders, businesses, coaches and young refugees from across the world to create a team with purpose, a team like no other. We all share one goal - for displaced young people to find belonging through sport, and shape their own futures, their way. Having been through the unimaginable hardship of displacement, on this team they will find somewhere to feel at home again. Somewhere they can develop the skills to succeed in life and truly thrive. Sport can be the springboard for a future that didn't seem possible. Helping young people find their place in the world, find success in their dream career. Or even finding themselves at the Olympic Games. Together we can help them discover a future full of opportunity, fuelled by the Olympic spirit. Our work It is easy to take the feeling of home for granted. That sense of being safe, welcome and respected. For young people uprooted by conflict, persecution or disaster, sport can offer a safe haven. Sport can develop stronger ties in communities, provide opportunities to learn new skills, build networks and improve health. We want to ensure 1 million young people access safe sport by 2024. To do this we're focused on making an impact in three areas: Access - making sure more young people affected by displacement can access and benefit from safe sport, for instance, through our programmes of sport- and play-based activities and upskilling coaches and through the Refugee Olympic Team. Adoption - ensuring that the role of safe sport in supporting young refugees is widely understood and used, for instance, encouraging national governments to include safe sport in their refugee response frameworks. Collective action - mobilising multiple partnerships to create sustained change, and improving the way sport is used to support young people affected by displacement. Together we can achieve more.
Our mission is to close the unjustifiable gap between the refugees and newcomers' potential and their systematic demotion. Our objective is to change the narrative around their professional inclusion thanks to pragmatic and efficient solutions and by interests lining up. We want to show that recruiting refugees can become a norm for companies, as easy as recruiting locals while being an amazing value creation. For five years, we have set the basis to create a simple and scalable solution that is able to tackle massively the refugees' professional inclusion issue while answering companies' recruitment difficulties. We have then validated our proof of concept around two main programmes. Our offer to refugees consists in extensive support throughout the journey to resume a job. Depending on their needs, maturity and aspirations, each One offers to enroll them to a specific program with the dosage of each content (French lessons, live in France lessons, soft-skills workshops, networking events, etc.) that best suits them. To be more specific, here are the two complementary solutions we can offer: - The Society programs operated by each One for Society, hosted in top-notch universities, are the initial training programs for people who are not ready to directly recover a job. They last between one and 8 months and they include French lessons , soft-skills workshops , French cultural discovery trainings, and professional days. They are hosted in top-notch French universities across the country (HEC, Sciences-Po Paris - Bordeaux - Lille, ESCP, ESSEC, INSA Lyon -Toulouse etc.). - The All in One pre-recruitment training programs operated by each One SAS include French for professional use lessons, soft-skills workshops, corporate immersion and specific professional training. They are built thanks to our partnerships with top companies. In order to maximize the effectiveness and relevance of our different trainings, all the pedagogical contents have been created based on the needs expressed by the refugees. And in a logic of continuous improvement, they are regularly reviewed and adapted in light of the refugees' feedback. Through this complete accompanying path we created, we are able to tackle the main causes of refugees' unemployment and demotion while building a scalable system.

Saving the wildlife of our countryside. Volunteer pilots operate in Belgium with drones equipped with a thermal camera to detect fawns, hares and nests in the fields prior to agricultural work and save them from horrific mutilation or death. Once detected, we isolate these animals for the duration of the work and give them back their freedom immediately afterwards. A second mission consists in identifying certain wild species in the fields whose conservation status is at risk (e.g. partridges). Sauvons Bambi was officially created on 13 January 2021. Today, it brings together 24 officially licensed drone pilots trained by the association to detect and save deer fawns and nests. In 2 years the association has already saved more than 700 animals!
