What happened to those students or the ones who are here, in France, trapped because they do not know anyone, don’t speak the language or simply because there is no flight to go back home? It was there when we decided to react and help. One first idea came: let’s collect some funds and help 20 families during a month. We created some google forms for the registration of families and we promoted our idea to receive some funds. It worked! In less than 24 hours we collected all the money we needed to help 20 families.[/vc_column_text][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”15″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/12″ css=”.vc_custom_1467207298589{margin-top: 10px !important;margin-bottom: 10px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;}”][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”15″][vc_column_text el_class=”nd_options_text_align_center_responsive”]However, we received the information of much more people that needed help, almost 100 families registered in a couple of days. There, we realized that we needed to accept the support of all the people who wanted to help and we created an additional strategy: parrainage (mentoring, sponsorship). This strategy allows the “godfathers” (padrinos in spanish) to keep in touch with the families they help. Later, another mechanism took place. Relationships with two companies allow us to distribute food door-to-door to families who urgently need food. With these three strategies; By raising funds to buy food vouchers, parrainization of families ,and food delivery, we have helped around 300 Latin American families in one month.[/vc_column_text][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”15″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1492510780167{margin-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/3″][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”10″][nd_options_team nd_options_layout=”layout-5″ nd_options_image=”1277″ nd_options_title=”Claudia’s groceries” nd_options_role=”She and her family live in Champigny-sur-Marne”][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”10″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”10″][nd_options_team nd_options_layout=”layout-5″ nd_options_image=”1253″ nd_options_title=”Silvia’s house” nd_options_role=”15 people living in this house in Auvers-sur-Oise”][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”10″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”10″][nd_options_team nd_options_layout=”layout-5″ nd_options_image=”1251″ nd_options_title=”Volunteers on road” nd_options_role=”1216 menus delivered in one day!”][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”10″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” parallax=”content-moving” parallax_image=”924″ css=”.vc_custom_1493392077333{margin-top: 60px !important;padding-top: 100px !important;padding-bottom: 100px !important;}” el_class=”nd_options_vc_parallax_filter_2_2″][vc_column width=”8/12″][nd_options_services nd_options_layout=”layout-5″ nd_options_title_color=”#ffffff” nd_options_image=”310″ nd_options_title=”Doing the right thing,
