The programme

ON THE ROAD TO SCHOOL


6 countries, 6 aid projects for education, 6 humanitarian associations, 6 local Colas teams, 6 children of Colas employees, hundreds of children who will receive easier access to education, hundreds of adventures.
As one part of its charity work, Colas and its employees support the On the road to School programme, in partnership with GoodPlanet, a foundation set up by Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

Designed to deliver access to education, this programme will be run in 6 countries where Colas operates. The programme will vary in each country and be developed in partnership with a local humanitarian association. GoodPlanet will identify and assess these projects.

A Colas volunteer and their child will be assigned to each project. Their role will be both to report on local education conditions and to represent Colas. They will meet children, teachers, humanitarian workers, local communities, etc as well as the men and women who work for Colas in these countries.

This site is so that they can share their personal stories with Group employees and other internet users.
