ASSOCIATION COOPÉRATION HUMANITAIRE (ACH)
The Association Coopération Humanitaire (Humanitarian Cooperation Association, ACH), was founded in 1992 by five women seeking to combat extreme poverty, first in Senegal, then in Madagascar and finally in the French department of Réunion Island. The association comes to the aid of the most disadvantaged (homeless, sick, excluded, children, disabled, etc.) by committing itself to the fight against the social isolation of the most destitute.
In Réunion Island, the Maison du Bonheur was created for that purpose in 2016.
Workshops help beneficiaries:
|•||by giving them greater autonomy through the acquisition of practical knowledge and new techniques;|
|•||by creating social ties and facilitating their reintegration into the world of work;|
|•||by promoting Réunion’s culture and traditional craftsmanship through the creation of handmade objects that are sold during open days.|
The Rubis Group, through its local subsidiary SRPP, has been supporting this association since 2017.
