Lyreco For Education

When a child goes to school, a nation grows!

Started in 2008, the Lyreco For Education programme raises funds from the 26 Lyreco countries to give children living in poor conditions a better access to education.

Key figures:

  • 5 countries supported
  • 103.500 children enrolled in schools*
  • 161 schools built*
  • 2.105.000 € collected & delivered to NGOs

* some actions were led with the "Agence Française de Développement" (French Development Agency)

Together to raise funds

Spend time & collect money for a good cause belongs to the company culture and all employees are involved in collecting money in 3 ways:
  • Marketing operations with our customers & suppliers participation, such as: X products bought = 1€ collected for LFE!
  • Internal events: selling hot dogs, books or cakes, second hand market, karaoke, Christmas market..., the employees from every subsidiary organise and take part in local LFE actions
  • Donations: ad hoc or monthly cash donations from employees. The sums donated are then doubled by Lyreco
For each project, we select an international NGO focusing on children's education, and a specific action plan is defined based on objectives depending on the local context. The final goal of each project is to maintain our actions on a lifelong perspective. For that, a local steering committee, with teachers, heads of the village and parents, is set up in each village and thus they are responsible of their own education project.
