On March 22, the Board of Directors of the FM Group Corporate Foundation approved 3 new projects and a renewed partnership.

RENEWAL OF PARTNERSHIP WITH SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES IN UKRAINE

The partnership between SOS Children’s Villages Ukraine, FM Logistic and FM Foundation began in 2019. It involves providing psychological support to vulnerable children at risk of social orphanages, as well as to their parents or guardians.
94 children and 28 parents/guardians have already benefited from professional psychosocial support during the first year of the partnership, in the form of individual psychotherapy consultations, individual development courses and personalized follow-up.
FM Logistic also participated in the partnership in the form of in-kind donations, transport sponsorship or skills sponsorship (Christmas gifts, logistical support for the delivery of humanitarian aid, replacement of the boilers of the SOS children’s village of Brovary, repair of the houses and autumn cleaning of the village, …).
For this new year of partnership, 50 children and 65 adults in family recovery and care programs are affected by the scheme.

Involvement of FM Group employees:
As in the previous year, FM employees will be able to get involved in the form of logistic sponsorship to deliver humanitarian aid or skills sponsorship to improve living conditions in the SOS children’s village of Brovary.
This year, there is also the possibility to give courses (online depending on the situation), to help with homework and to facilitate vocational guidance activities for young people (presentation seminar, excursion, professional meetings, mentoring, job interview simulation).

Impacts of the project:
The psychological support provided by this programme aims to improve the psychosocial status of children and parents or guardians, by stabilizing a positive psycho-emotional state, by improving self-esteem and self-control, while eliminating psychosomatic disorders, thus allowing the reconnection with social ties.

All courses offered as part of the program will be held at the FM Logistic site in Canoas.
FM volunteers will be able to teach, depending on their skills and knowledge.

EQUIPPING A REHABILITATION CENTRE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, WITH SEMYA IN RUSSIA

Semya is a social services institution established in 2010 and located in the Moscow region, Domodedovo district. Its mission is to help the homeless and children in socially dangerous situations,
Due to the global COVID-19 situation, the institution needs to rebuild part of the space into medical isolation rooms for the reception of newcomers, in order to exclude uncontrolled ill children from contact with healthy children.
As the reconstruction project can only be carried out in the warm seasons of the year, it is planned to be carried out in the period from April to October 2021.
25 children aged 4 to 17, placed in the centre by social authorities for different reasons (alcohol or drug-addicted parents, poor family financial situation, lost parent-child relationships) will be protected through this project supported by the FM group and its foundation.

Involvement of FM group employees:

Approximately 15 FM employees will participate in the project as follows:

  • organization and planning of the project
  • project validation with the centre’s management (reconstruction, plans, materials, furniture)
  • contractor research and validation
  • organization of transport for delivery of materials
  • loading and unloading of materials
  • wall paint
  • furniture assembly
  • dismantling of old materials

5 employees of NG Concept, a company within the FM Group that designs and manufactures logistics platforms, will contribute their expertise and guide the process of carrying out the work.

Impact of the project:

The planned work will reduce the rate of sick children by excluding contact between sick and healthy children.

SCHOOL EDUCATION SUPPORT WITH ONYVA IN INDIA

TARA is the name of the projects led by the Indian NGO ONYVA and the association CHAYA France, created in 2009.
TARA welcomes, in four houses in New Delhi, children who live with or without their parents in situations of danger. These children are placed at TARA by order of the Indian Children’s Judge. Most of them are in great danger in their home environment: they have been attacked, maimed, abandoned, trafficked or survivors in conditions that threatened their lives.
Through the funding of scholarships and the implementation of a skills donation program from April 2021 to February 2022, FM Logistic and FM Foundation will provide support to 20 boys, aged 6 to 18, living in one of the TARA houses.

Involvement of FM Logistic employees:

FM employees will engage in the project by donating skills, mentoring, interviews and exploring employment opportunities for older youth. They will also be able to visit children and spend time with them by celebrating various festivals, children’s day, or by organizing competitions for children.

Impact of the project:

This partnership will support the education of disadvantaged children and improve their educational outcomes, as well as improve their health, social skills and sense of security.

These 4 projects illustrate the commitment of FM Group employees to act with FM Foundation, all together for a more inclusive society.
