Description of the partner

Since it was founded, Imagine le Monde has been committed to helping people in vulnerable situations to integrate and become independent. It offers children and young people (some of whom are disabled) access to education, cultural and sporting activities to help them develop and prepare them for integration into society. It works to improve the living conditions of families in difficulty, in particular by encouraging the empowerment of women (literacy, sewing training, etc.).
