A Helping Hand For Employees

October 1, 2016

Thanks to the BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation, more than 150 organisations have been sponsored since 2004 and more than CHF 600,000 have been attributed to associations in Switzerland and abroad.

Mindful of the commitment of its employees to the community, BNP Paribas in Switzerland actively supports their initiatives through the Foundation.

As such, its “Helping Hand” programme aims to encourage initiatives of general interest and support for the most destitute, in which bank employees are personally involved, outside of their professional lives. Since 2004, the BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation has sponsored more than 150 solidarity projects involving bank personnel.

In 2015, Rémi Caroffs application was chosen. With the support of the BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation, he was able to accomplish his project of participating in the 4L Trophy and thus cover 6,000 kilometres between Biarritz and Marrakech. The principal goal of his project was to distribute, once he reached Morocco, food, school supplies and sports equipment to deprived children. Four schools were also built.
