Access to education for all children is an important challenge for the Air Liquide Foundation. The Foundation's President, Benoît Potier, wanted to observe the Foundation's action in this field, on the ground in Casablanca.

Since 2010, the Air Liquide Foundation has helped six projects to renovate primary and secondary schools in underprivileged neighborhoods in the greater Casablanca area. The projects were coordinated by the development and solidarity associations Initiatives andEnfance Maghreb Avenir.

The Foundation's President, Benoît Potier, visited two of the renovated schools on Wednesday 17 September 2014. This enabled him to meet the associations coordinating these projects on the ground, as well as the beneficiaries, the headmasters, Moroccan education officials, teachers, and pupils.

Benoît Potier : "We are in the region of Casablanca and - as President of the Foundation - I wanted to be on the ground to see and to talk to these projects' stakeholders. I also wanted to meet the sponsors, namely the Air Liquide employees who support these projects and, ultimately, enable them to be realised "

The Foundation's action in Morocco
• Nine projects supported in the fields of Education/Training and Social support
• Projects in Casablanca and Essaouira
• Nearly 4,500 Moroccan pupils helped
