ISSA | SOLIDARITY MADE TANGIBLE

100 PROJECTS THAT CREATE EMPLOYMENT

Since 2007, our support program for economic activity – known as Initiatives Sogea-Satom pour l’Afrique or ISSA – has helped nearly 170 projects led by micro-businesses or cooperatives to create employment and generate revenue for local populations. A budget of €500,000 is allocated every year to these initiatives. In addition, Sogea-Satom employees sponsor and support these solidarity-building activities.

ECONOMY AND ECOLOGY

Two examples of recent support initiatives involve a women’s cooperative that produces environmentally friendly shea butter in Burkina Faso and a micro-business dedicated to recycling in Burundi.
