The Fondation d’Entreprise Casino will this evening (28 June) present its newest programme from its project ‘Artistes à l’Ecole’, which benefits 1,500 school students from disadvantaged areas.
Students from the Aliénor d’Aquitaine de Salles will stage a performance entitled Babelkoké, based around the Biblical story of Babel. It is part of Casino’s action plan, running since 2009, to help children from deprived backgrounds develop culturally and personally.
The performance will take place in Paris’s Odéon – Théâtre de l’Europe.
“The impact of this programme, created by the Casino Foundation and designed to aid the personal development of pupils, is evidenced by their improved behaviour and school grades,” said Yves Desjacques, Groupe Casino’s director of human resources.
“We are encouraged by the strong results we have seen, and are reassured of our conviction that the theatre can act as catalyst for disadvantaged children to succeed.”
