The L'OCCITANE Foundation involves more and more employees in projects of general interest. For example, it supports several subsidiaries around the world who wish to support the visually impaired in their own country.
The L'OCCITANE employees play an important role in the actions of the Foundation. The association "Nord et Sud" created by volunteer employees is supported by the Foundation. It focuses its efforts on Burkina Faso to stimulate local product sales and participate in the economic emancipation of women.
The organization aims to use the experience of L'OCCITANE employees to contribute to improve the local production of cosmetics based on shea butter by the Burkinabe women. These classes allow women to develop an income-generating activity.
The Foundation supports "Nord et Sud" organization since 2008 thanks to annual agreements.
