Committed with our charity: l’école à l’hôpital
Au large stands up for the children who are facing adversity to keep learning and growing despite illness.
Since 1929, our charity, l’école à l’hôpital, provides young people from 5 to 25 with the opportunity to pursue their education despite illness and medical treatment, at home or at the hospital.
480 trained teachers are volunteering to offers a customized and free schooling in more than 40 hospitals in the Paris region.
4.400 young people are taking more than 22.000 lessons every year.
We joined forces with l’école à l’hôpital, with a double ambition:
To collect 100 000 € of donations for the charity
To share our optimism and our thirst to learn with the students and the teachers through meetups and exercises.
