Gosselin Group employees are always happy to do their part for a good cause. We recently donated 20 computers to Ateliere Fara Frontiere, a Romanian organization that creates jobs for underprivileged people to help them with their integration in society.
Three workshops for social integration
Ateliere Fara Frontiere, or “Workshops without Borders” is a non-profit organization that gives people who are vulnerable and locked out of society the chance to integrate. They work with these underprivileged people to help them with their social, professional and civic integration. In their work, they fight poverty, unemployment, exclusion and discrimination.
Ateliere Fara Frontiere offers three integration workshops. Through their REMESH project, they collect advertising banners for recycling, making ethically responsible bags from these banners that hang along the side of the road. They are also active in organic gardening in their Bio & Co Farm, and offer vegetable packages each week to the participants in this workshop. Finally, the RECONNECT workshop helps give used IT equipment a second life. They collect computers that are donated via a national digital educational program to resource-deprived schools.
Gosselin Group was able to lend a hand when it comes to this last project. Our IT team in Belgium collected 20 used computers from the main office to send to the organization in Bucharest. After testing and reinstalling these computers, Olivier Ravon, Sales Director for Europe, presented them to Ateliere Fara Frontiere. We hope that the schools will be able to use these computers for many years to come.
