Partnerships with global charities help us make a world of difference. At the international level, we work with the Naandi Foundation and MicroWorld to help eradicate poverty through girls’ education and microfinance programs.
Every year, the United Nations celebrates volunteerism through its International Volunteer Day (IVD) and pays special tribute to young people serving as agents of change in their communities. We scheduled our Group Community Week to coincide with IVD so we can recognise our employees’ fundraising and volunteer work along with the millions of other volunteers around the world.
Education in India
Capgemini and its employees support the Naandi Foundation’s Nanhi Kali initiative, which funds girls’ education in India. We believe that education is a transformative force that can lift families out of poverty.
Today, we’re the largest corporate sponsor of Nanhi Kali internationally and the second largest Naandi sponsor overall. More than 60% of our employees across 13 countries have a relationship with Naandi, helping sponsor more than 10,000 girls to date. Through the Hamari Libraries initiative, we organised support for 22 libraries in urban, rural and tribal locations.
We work closely with MicroWorld, an organisation dedicated to helping the world’s poorest people fulfill their economic potential through microfinance. Together, we launched Microworld’s first co-branded microcredit website. It enables our employees to invest in small businesses around the world.
We’re committed to the environment and we partnered with Apiterra to show it. Two fully functional beehives are now located on the top of our global headquarters in Paris, France. Apiterra works to enhance biodiversity through urban beehives, and researches disease resistance and mortality in bee populations.
