CHILDREN'S EDUCATION IS THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD
Since 2006, the 120w association has supported educational projects around the world for children with access to fewer resources.
Raising children is the future of the world
We want to make a contribution, however small, to the construction of the world to come. To do this, our action is solely focused on setting up and participating in educational projects for children who have access to fewer resources.
How did the idea of the association come about?
It was the desire to combine two passions, the beauty of the desert and cycling, that gave rise to the idea of the association.
The beauty of the Dead Sea site, the Negev desert, mythical places such as Masada, the idea of cycling from the lowest point on earth (-396 meters) to climb 1000 meters through extraordinary curves ... But how to combine this project with an objective worthy of the site?
It was then that, in 2005, the idea of helping underprivileged children appeared by sponsoring the kilometers climbed and run. Since 2006, we have been collecting all kinds of donations.
Where does our name come from?
120W is the eponym of the place of meetings, exchanges and brainstorming for ideas, historically located at 120 avenue de Wagram in Paris;
A strong point: financial ethics
Everything is done to ensure that 100% of donations are invested in projects and that 100% of the money donated to projects is used wisely.
The association must be able to demonstrate that every penny of the donation received has been spent as intended.
For 12 years, we have been supporting various projects, around the world, which use education to allow children to access qualitative learning which will open new windows and doors to the world. Traditional school, music, entrepreneurship, volunteering... education for us is multidisciplinary.
To date, 120W has directly affected more than 3,000 children and an environment of more than 12,000 people. Each euro used has a really important impact.
