Naturex Educates, Assists Those In Need

January 30, 2013

FRANCE: The Naturex Foundation is an independent entity with its own resources, which supports in particular education, medicine, and basic necessities in communities from which Naturex derives plant materials, outside of any economic interest.

The Naturex Foundation aims to improve the living conditions of communities where Naturex sources its raw materials. The projects currently being undertaken are generating good results.

In Morocco, the Foundation supports the E.M.A. (Enfance Magreb Avenir) association, which works to provide educational support for young disadvantaged people. The next stage of the partnership is to renovate the sport facilities of a school that educates 1500 junior students.

In India, the inhabitants of Dehra Dun live below the poverty threshold. Conducted with Agrisud, a Naturex project allowed the installation of new farms and strengthened the local resources for people.
More than one hundred growers benefit from the strengthening of their farmers’ co-op (material dotation and training courses). Lemon grass growers are supported by advisers and benefit from demonstrations that help to promote good farming practices. The success of this operation has led to a similar project in the neighboring area of Panchayat de Masraspatti. This operation targets four villages and the aim is to establish new farms by the end of the year.

Other Naturex projects in Morocco and Peru started in 2008.
