Graines de Joie (Brazil)
In 2016, the Saint-Gobain Foundation supported a project sponsored by Marie Bailly and Delphine Patoir, to refurbish a creche in the Arbore Seca favela in northern Rio de Janeiro. One of the spaces had until then been completely useless as it had been taken over by vegetation and was often used as a passage. The aim was to bring it into line with the relevant standards, add insulation and create a play area for children. The nonprofit Graines de Joie, which was running the project, has been providing help and assistance to children suffering hardship (quality of life and access to education) for more than 15 years.
The Saint-Gobain Foundation donated €12,000 to this project.
