Campus for Courage
Area of sustainability (i.e. food waste, single use plastics)
What were the objectives of the Social Responsibility or Environmental initiative?
After the Spring 2020 Lockdown in France, the Campus could still not receive business events (business resumed mid-August). It consequently offered to open and welcome families suffering domestic violence.
From mid-May to mid-July, we received 50 women and children suffering domestic violence. We partnered with associations to offer shelter but also activities during their stay in Les Fontaines. Welcoming these families was a no-brainer for us. 1. They were in danger and in need of a shelter, a safe place to restore and pause before setting up a new course to their life 2. We are professionals in taking care of participants / clients when they come to Les Fontaines – so this was perfectly at the core of what our teams do (#wecare)
Detail of project
After the lockdown, with the GO from Capgemini (Social Response Unit, managed at Group level), the Campus Serge Kampf Les Fontaines re-opened to welcome these families. The process took less than 2 weeks to put in place. Charity association managed the process while we offered a shelter with safe accommodation and F/B. We obviously had to take care of all sanitary measures following the pandemic. Another association and Capgemini-team members gave up some of their time to take care of the children (playing / helping with school…) and their mother. A film was made to capture all these emotions (available on YT : https://youtu.be/SccBMdyKrqI)
