Association Léon is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 by 6 friends.
- Fanny & Nicolas Brabeck-Letmathe
- Adriani & Lionel Constantin-Danos
- Maria & Vincent Rapin-Saiz
The goal of the association is to support education related projects they believe in.
That's for the official part.
Actually, it all started over glasses of wine and a good dinner! We were discussing that during everyday life you seldom think about helping people in need. Nicolas shared the story of his family who had funded the constructions of schools in Venezuela with donation collected from friends during various birthday parties instead of receiving gifts. And luckily, that particuliar year, 2007, there was a big 30 years birthday party being planned! That night, the idea started of having Association Leon, initially funded by the generosity of people flying from around the world to celebrate Nicolas's birthday!
2007 was also a very special year for all of us, as we were to become parents that same year! Parents tend to quickly understand that the most powerful tool to improve life is Education! The objective of Association Leon was set to fund projects supporting Education behind the motto: ''Give a man a fish, he will eat for a day! Teach him how to fish and he will eat forever''.
One of the main barrier of giving for charity is not trusting that 100% of the money is used efficiently; therefore we agreed that Association Leon would only invest in projects we could personally relate and track.
Now, enough talking.
