Because each company has a role to play in society and can make a contribution through its know-how, its culture and, above all, its values, we have decided to create our own foundation: ORAPI HYGIENE FOUNDATION.
As the leader in France’s professional hygiene industry, our desire is to help children by joining the fight against contagious diseases and epidemics by teaching them the rules of hygiene.
Both within France and abroad, we hope to help as many children as possible to avoid contracting these diseases, simply by helping them to acquire good habits and learn the fundamental rules of hygiene.
Our ORAPI HYGIENE Foundation’s mission is to “Help children to acquire good hygiene habits to protect them against public health risks and thereby contribute to a future of good health for all of humanity.” .
Our Foundation participates in the fight against serious, often lethal, epidemics. Firstly, it participates in the fight against the Ebola virus.
Indeed, in Liberia, only immediate education in hygiene rules can allow children to avoid or, at least, to impede the development of the Ebola virus, if it returns.
With the cooperation of UNESCO, our ORAPI HYGIENE Foundation supports the training programme in Liberian schools, training teachers in the 300 schools in 3 counties in Liberia, and has thereby enabled more than 80,000 people—schoolchildren and teachers—to be taught in 3 years.
