For the second time our favourite rider Nicolas Brabeck-Letmathe (co-fondator of Association Léon) is taking over the amazing challenge of Dakar Rally.
He rides a KTM bike #114 and we'll be following him on www.facebook.com/associationleon with pictures and live info!
As you will see he's competing under our dear association's colors, raising awarness for our dedication to education since 2007. You can support him by sponsoring Dakar's days. The race runs from 2nd until 15th of January 2016. We propose you a donation pattern that you can follow if you wish to, but any support is highly welcome. Remember all donations go 100% to educational projets we follow around the world (Peru, Vietnam, Cameroun), there is no administrative costs being deduced from your support!
5 US/day = 70 US for the entire rally
10 US/day = 140 US for the entire rally
30 US/day = 450 US for the entire rally
100 US/day = 1400 US for the entire rally
Go Nicolas! Good luck on your Dakar.

At this time of the year every SME boss is figuring out what present to offer to their clients/providers.
We suggest them to join Association Léon's Santas team by donating for an educational project instead of giving the traditional holiday presents. You could send a simple Christmas Card with the following note:
This year Our Company chose to donate to Association Léon who support educational projects around the world, making dreams of better future come true.
All companies doing so will be part of our "Be a Santa for Association Léon" facebook campaign running from 1st of december until ... Santa's arrival!

We are glad to support Sinfonia por el Peru in their amazing project in El Augustino, Lima. A very challenging "barrio" of Peru biggest city.
Sinfonia por el Peru changes lives of disadvantage children through music, teaching them self esteem, discipline, greater tenacity and increasing their creativity; they had lately very persuasive results at an impact assessment conducted by the Bureau of Studies for Development - GRADE .
The association was created by world famous tenor Juan Diego Flores.
They have already developped 10 centers in and around Lima and are just creating the number 11 (september 2015). Association Léon provides for drumming instruments for this amazing orchestra.
Fanny Brabeck-Letmathe visited them for a rehersal in october 2015.

We got to know Bin Trieu center in Vietnam, close to Ho Chi Minh. It's a center that welcomes kids coming from provinces outside the capital city. They arrive in Ho Chi Minh as "immigrant" and are not entitled to attend schools; therefore they are very often turning into "street children".
The Bin Trieu welcomes as many of these children as they can and they provide for:
- in some cases they even find accomodation for them
Association Léon could fund the extra teacher that school needed: her name is Hoang Thi Thu Hang. She will teach to 33 young students.
