Impact : Integration through work
The association La Varappe, a research and development laboratory, is creating new activities for the integration of people who are very far from employment. Since 2012, the Phitrust endowment fund has been supporting its project to transform end-of-life maritime containers into offices and housing. The integration company Homeblok, created in 2015, has become a reference in the transformation of containers into emergency housing.
Another project supported: the “Growing up” programme, created in 2021, designed and implemented with more than 15 field actors in the South East, is changing the situation in two territories: Aix-Marseille and Mayotte. The idea is to create unprecedented encounters between 700 “invisible” people, far from employment, and companies looking for talent, thanks to a team of ten talent coaches in the field, in the heart of the housing estates.
