CNP Assurances is supporting the Culturespaces Foundation and the association Eva pour la vie, which develop innovative projects to improve the lives of children with disabilities or cancer.

Since 2009, the Culturespaces Foundation, under the aegis of Fondation Agir Contre l’Exclusion, has been developing educational and cultural programmes for children aged 5 to 12 who are vulnerable due to illness, disability or social insecurity. It offers fun and educational experiences through programmes and tours of exceptional cultural sites. CNP Assurances has chosen to support a programme that combines solidarity and creativity. Its objective is to familiarise and introduce disabled children to architecture through physical expression. Since dance and architecture both involve working with space and 3D, the children are taken on a “dancing” tour, where they can discover a historic architectural site such as the Jacquemart-André Museum in an original and inclusive way. By allowing them to unleash their creativity and imagination, the project aims to improve their daily lives and well-being. Initially intended for young people at the Michel Arthuis Institute for Motor Skills in the Paris region, this programme will eventually benefit 200 disabled children in the Île-de-France area.

Founded in 2012, the association Eva pour la vie provides financial support for research into paediatric cancers and for families of sick children. It regularly lobbies institutions (MPs, senators, ministries & the president) to obtain legal and budgetary improvements on these issues. In addition, it develops programs to improve the lives of hospitalised children in France. CNP Assurances has decided to make a financial contribution to one of its projects, which helps families of sick children find lodging near the hospital and improves the comfort of young hospitalised patients by supporting the development of athletic and art therapy sessions.

Agathe Sanson, Strategic marketing, communication and charity manager for CNP Assurances : “This support lends a helping hand to two innovative aid projects. CNP Assurances is committed to providing sick or disabled children with better chances for inclusion and supporting their families.
