AREVA Foundation was founded in 2007 to underpin the Group’s societal commitment and its policy of community involvement in countries in which it operates. Focused on solidarity and public interest projects, it supports concrete, targeted and sustainable actions benefitting the disadvantaged, with priority given to children, women and students.

Adding to its trailblazing programs in the fields of Health (combating Aids and malaria in particular) and Education (most notably the fight against illiteracy), the Foundation adds the new line of the access to culture for the disadvantaged.

AREVA Foundation endeavors to involve the Group's employees in its programs by inviting them to propose projects, sponsor young scholarship students or go on humanitarian missions abroad.

During the first meeting of the renewed Board of Directors held on May 24, 2012, twenty-three projects were approved: thirteen in Education, six in Health and four in Culture. Most of the projects will be deployed in France, but also in India, Niger or South Africa.

The selected projects include:

• a new partnership with the French national agency for the fight against illiteracy to develop a major program in France;
• an eight-year extension of the partnership with the Curie Institute;
• a new cultural partnership with the Musée du quai Branly on "an extramural project" for widespread access to culture.

In addition, the 2012 program to involve employees, representing 20% of the Foundation’s annual endowment, was approved.

AREVA CEO and Foundation Chairman Luc Oursel, announced: "we are convinced that the growth of our operations must take place in a setting of true social responsibility. Our Foundation’s action contributes to our commitment to sustainable community involvement through programs of support for those who need them most. I thank our partners and our employees, who are turning out in growing numbers to help us implement solidarity projects."

To celebrate this new commitment, Luc Oursel and his guest of honor, Mrs. George Pau-Langevin, Deputy Minister of National Education in charge of Educational Success, will invite partners and Group employees involved in the Foundation’s projects to Paris headquarters at rue La Fayette on Wednesday, June 27, to talk about their experience. Two of them will provide illustrations of the actions supported by AREVA Foundation: Dr. Olivier Schwartz, head of the Virus and Immunity Research Unit at the Pasteur Institute, and Hervé Fernandez, Director of the French national agency for the fight against illiteracy.
