Aware of its social responsibility, Paléo Festival is committed to supporting a number of social and charitable organisations. Every year the Festival provides a space on the site for NGO’s thus permitting them to inform the public of their activities and raise awareness amongst festivalgoers about the causes they are defending. This summer, come and meet Swissaid, the Festival’s charity partner.
Created in 1948, SWISSAID organises aid and development projects in 9 African countries, Latin America and Asia. Their philosophy? Give a helping hand to poverty-stricken families so that they can live a dignified life. Essentially developed in rural areas, their projects put the emphasis on:
- Ecologically sustainable agriculture
- Prevention of hunger
- Secure water supply
- Support for local civil society
- Women’s autonomy
