In 2008, the Saint-Gobain Foundation was born. Over the past 10 years, it has supported 148 projects led by 115 non-profit organizations, of which 4 are in sub-Saharan Africa.
In 2008, the Group General Management and its CEO Pierre-André de Chalendar created a structure to support local communities and inclusive social development in fields related to Saint-Gobain’s areas of expertise:
And so, the Saint-Gobain Foundation was born.
Many of the projects we support have a common goal of living together (day centers, intergenerational solidarity, etc.).
As a link between the non-profit sector and the company, the Saint-Gobain Foundation is also committed to the local communities in the regions where the Group operates.
In sub-Saharan Africa, the Saint-Gobain Foundation has already supported four projects in three different countries:
- Sonwabo Primary School in Gugulethu (Western Cape)
- Inyonemhlophe Secondary School in Isipingo (KwaZulu-Natal)
- Mvelaphanda Primary School in Tembisa (Gauteng)
