14 new projects for the Nexans Foundation in 2016
The Selection Committee and the Board of Directors of the Nexans Foundation met on May 2016 to choose the 2016 projets to be supported by the Foundation. Of the 89 projects submitted 14 were selected.
These electrification projects are mainly located in sub-Saharan Africa but also in Cambodia, Nepal, Indonesia, Morocco and France. And we have 2 projects in Brazil: new country that joined the call for projects!
Among the selected associations, some have already been supported by our Foundation such as ''Electricians without borders'' (ESF), ''Un Enfant par la Main'' or ''Geres''.
With these new partnerships, more than 30,000 people will benefit from access to electricity, one of the projects in Brazil will provide energy to five communities in an extremely isolated part of the tropical rainforest!
We will soon give you more detailled information on these 14 projects after we meet with our new partners...
