For the past two years, the setec Foundation has been working for the ecological and societal transition. Initially based in France, it has extended its action internationally and is now active on three continents: Europe, Africa and America.
Annual campaigns in Africa and Latin America
The annual thematic campaigns are an opportunity for the setec Foundation to focus its efforts on a region of the world where the group’s subsidiaries are located.
In 2021, the African continent was honoured through the FAMAE Challenge competition, of which the setec Foundation was a partner. 6 French-speaking African countries (Senegal, Cameroon, Benin, Ivory Coast, Gabon and Madagascar) were able to propose a sustainable construction/infrastructure project. 112,000 euros were donated to 3 associations in Senegal and Cameroon. Staff members act as the setec Foundation’s intermediary on site and monitor the projects.
The setec Foundation has decided to focus its 2022 campaign on the South American continent and to launch a call for projects in Colombia, Brazil, Peru, and Haiti on the theme of sustainable construction. It is relying on the help of its local employees to identify projects.
The Transition and Emergency Fund in Asia
In 2022, the setec Foundation supported a solar panel installation project for a secondary school in Beirut, Lebanon. But 2022 was not all good news… War broke out in Ukraine in March 2022, and the Foundation committed itself to funding 3 associations on the spot, as well as making a donation to the Fondation de France’s appeal for support. This was followed in 2023 by the tragic earthquakes in Syria and Turkey, and Morocco. Following this, the setec Foundation made a donation to the Fondation de France’s appeal for support.
Projects coopted by employees in France and internationally
Thanks to its other grant scheme, the Transition Fund, the Foundation has also been able to support associations in Madagascar, Haiti.
