On the ground, the Foundation is involved in activities centred on Education, Healthcare and Social issues, through two categories of action. On one hand, it conducts its own projects, in particular the construction of schools and health facilities to improve the daily lives of communities. On the other hand, it supports initiatives linked to its mission, through material and financial donations for the benefit of the poor populations.
The selection of projects is transparent, in line with the strategic objectives approved by the Foundation Council and should comply with the following principals:
- The relevance of the project must be based on a tangible need
- Optimization of project costs ensures that the majority of funds go to beneficiaries; administrative and logistics costs are limited to the strict minimum
- The impact of the project must be meaningful to the beneficiaries and must be sustainable
- The thematic and geographical diversification ensures balance in the portfolio of each country
