In the context of its corporate social responsibility, Winoa has made a long-term commitment to engage in actions centred on the improvement of the condition of disadvantaged youngsters.

HUMANITARIAN COMMITMENT

Our aim is to contribute to the development efforts in the emerging countries where we are active. For this purpose, the Group has decided to pool its means, in the Delhi region of India, by conducting two actions in partnership with the humanitarian association Plan International.

In 75 countries, Plan International works with children and youth to empower them to build their future and become independent adults.

Its international network, founded more than 80 years ago, currently runs nearly 2,000 development and emergency projects on site.

DHABAS KIDS : 2008-2011

The purpose of the "Dhabas kids" programme is the social reintegration of street children by providing access to education, health and leisure activities. Hundreds of street children and their families have already benefited from the program.

SAKSHAM PROJECTS : SINCE 2011

Thanks to the loyalty and the contribution of WINOA, Plan International leads in India the Saksham program which means "educated" in Hindi.

It aims to provide decent employment opportunities for young people from disadvantaged urban and rural communities through vocational training and self-entrepreneurship.

Saksham has trained nearly 6,000 young people with unfavorable employment perspectives.

During the first 2 phases of the program (2010 - 2016), 3,500 young men and women found a job or started a small business!

The third phase of the current program is aimed at enabling 3,250 young Indian women and men to obtain a decent job. This phase includes a big ICT component, facilitating the monitoring of training through e-learning.

In the long term, the Saksham program aims to enable the inclusion of the most disadvantaged youth in the new Indian economy while contributing to the social and economic empowerment of young women.

Saksham's innovative approach lies, on the one hand, in the careful study of market needs in order to identify promising business lines and develop adapted training offering. On the other hand, strategic partnerships are being set up with key local parties: local associations, training centers, large and small companies and local institutes and administrations.
