Les P’tits Doudous

Decrease the anxiety of children undergoing surgery
Les P'tits Doudous is a network of associations of healthcare professionals working to improve the experience of children, parents and caregivers in the hospital.The national public interest charity, Les P'tits Doudous, was created in 2017 to lead the network of local Les P'tits Doudous associations and pool actions. We create innovative actions de-dramatizing the passage to the operating room and offer gifts to children operated on to reduce their anxiety.The objective of the network is to group together to lighten the workload of each charity and share good practices. It is also about imagining and developing together, new digital projects to allow patients to better live their hospitalization and their disease.Our ambition is to change the practices of care in the hospital thanks to the listening of the needs of patients by the caregivers. By giving caregivers the opportunity to propose themselves, ideas and projects for improvement, relying on digital technology and sustainable development, we lead them to change their practices. The social impact of our project is therefore important. A social innovation project financed by the circular economy:We finance our actions through the recycling of single-use materials in operating theatres containing copper and stainless steel.

Association Siel Bleu

Health through adapted physical activity!
1 in 10 deaths worldwide is due to a sedentary lifestyle.  Just as the number of elderly people is growing, chronic diseases -which affect us all- are exploding and creating situations of social breakdown and dependence. Physical activity is an incredible prevention tool, good for well-being and self-confidence, it prevents illnesses, reduces symptoms and relapses, allows people to maintain their autonomy at all ages and preserves social isolation.Siel Bleu develops physical activity programs adapted to fragile people. Its 700 professionals accompany in retirement homes, hospitals, prisons, at work, at home, ..., the elderly, people with disabilities (physical or mental), the chronically ill and people in social insecurity. The objective is to create a more inclusive society for all these people and to limit the impacts of the loss of autonomy by allowing each person to feel like an actor in his or her body and life.It promotes a new therapeutic pathway centered on prevention and the complementarity of drug and non-drug treatments. This allows the health system to cope with aging and chronic diseases: creating jobs and considerable health savings, without compromising health and quality of life but improving them in the long term.For Siel Bleu, health is a precious asset that allows us to move forward on a daily basis. It should never become a luxury! This is why donations are essential to make it accessible to all beyond financial and geographical barriers.

Fédération Simon de Cyrène

Let us build together fraternity with the most fragile
Every year in France, with the progress of medicine, more than 40,000 people survive a cerebral accident at birth or during life (serious road accident, sports accident, stroke...). A societal issue since nearly one French person out of two is confronted with a stage of life that can make him/her fragile, "untouchable" (illness, disability, separation, youth and old age, unemployment...).Severe forms of head trauma constitute a new problem, because with survival, the question of life after the accident arises. These people wake up after several months of coma and must relearn to live with severe disabilities (physical, psychological, cognitive) with often dramatic consequences (inability to work, loss of autonomy, risk of de-socialization). People affected by a stroke face the same difficulty.Simon de Cyrène was born from the initiative of a group of friends who decided to create together places of life and sharing allowing everyone (disabled people, friends, families) to meet for informal times of "Living Together" at the mercy of prepared and shared meals, parties, socialization activities (cultural, playful, sports...). In 2010, they opened the first shared house in Vanves at the gates of Paris. On the strength of this successful experience, groups of "Companions" have formed Simon de Cyrène associations in a dozen major cities in France.The Simon de Cyrène Federation helps them structure their project and provides technical and financial support to create their own shared houses. The Simon de Cyrène Shared Houses experience is part of a social project based on an "art of living together" between disabled and able-bodied people... It bears witness to the fact that fragility invites fraternity and trust.

PLAY International

Using sport to address societal issues
Since 1999, PLAY International has been roaming the grounds of the world using sport as a lever for education and inclusion. This action on the ground demonstrates that it is possible to positively impact life paths by inventing new ways of using physical activity and sport: to promote learning and develop life skills; to facilitate dialogue between communities scarred by war; etc. The development of Playdagogy, for example, illustrates this reality: we can learn actively and effectively through play. This is the case in Créteil on the scourge of a sedentary lifestyle, the fourth leading cause of death in the world. It is also the case in Burundi on the major issue of staying in school, in a country where more than one child in four does not finish primary school. Playdagogy is an active and participatory teaching method designed and developed by PLAY International. It uses sports games as an educational medium. In the extracurricular sector, it transmits prevention messages to facilitate the acquisition of new knowledge. In the school environment, its ambition is to raise awareness among children and to contribute to their change of mentality. Products of a collective work, the educational contents ( thematic sheets, sessions, appendices) are co-created with PLAY International's operational (education and animation professionals), institutional and scientific partners.In France, PLAY International and the Ministry of National Education have signed a framework agreement and an approval as a charity complementary to public education. The usefulness of Playdagogy is recognized there in academic success, the well-being of children and the training of future citizens. This commitment aims to deploy the Playdagogy method, particularly within the Priority Education Networks (REP and REP+). Together we have created new ways to use sport and play to build a better future for everyone!

Association La Cloche

Resonate in solidarity for a more inclusive society
We come across homeless people every day... How can we not feel helpless when faced with issues as complex as housing or social exclusion? To these questions are sometimes added preconceived ideas, rooted in the collective imagination, which dehumanize and contribute to increasing the exclusion of these women and men with uneven paths. However, changing the way we look at things and recreating links can help homeless people emerge from isolation, recover their dignity and confidence in themselves.This is within the reach of every citizen, complementing the action of professionals, in order for everyone to find a place in society. At La Cloche, all of our actions are born and developed, thanks to the collaboration of the various actors in a neighborhood:- Excluded publics- Citizens- Professionals in the field- Schools- Companies- Public authorities. - ...Our approach, positive and accessible, allows everyone to act, at their own level, for the good of all.Does this sound familiar? Then, together let us resonate in solidarity to build a more inclusive society!La Cloche is an association, law 1901, apolitical and aconfessional. Its mandate is to raise awareness, train and mobilize citizens in the fight against extreme exclusion through the change of perspective and the creation of social ties. Early in 2015, it launched its 1st program, Le Carillon. It is a network of solidarity merchants that promotes benevolent and proximity links between homeless people, merchants and residents. Le Carillon allows the exchange of simple services that change the life of each person, and are a pretext for social ties and ultimately participates in changing the way people look at each other (and at themselves). Today, Carillon can be found all over France and in particular in 8 major French cities: Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Lille, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Nantes, Strasbourg and Rennes. In 2017, it is the program Les Clochettes that was born with its inclusive urban initiatives: shared gardens, murals ... all to be carried out between neighbors with and without homes to always recreate the link and change the look. Finally, in 2018, it's the Cloche à Biscuits, an inclusion cookie factory, which opens its doors in Paris. Thanks to the Premières Heures scheme of the city of Paris, people in great precariousness have the opportunity to resume a supported professional activity that takes into account their situation. Already 3 recipes of organic and fair trade cookies to devour on demand thanks to our super cookie makers!And the Bell doesn't stop there to break clichés and create opportunities for encounters and sharing: a gazette, a radio and podcasts to give voice to street people, but also a choir, theater workshops or even unpopular soups and even citizen trainings!

Association Lazare

Simply living together
Since 2011, LAZARE has been developing and running apartments shared by 6 to 10 people between people who have lived on the streets and young active volunteers.An internal regulation sets rules for the good of all and the actions of daily life are assumed by the residents: cleaning, shopping ...The beneficiaries are, on the one hand, young active people who wish to invest themselves concretely in society and, on the other hand, people in situations of exclusion. The latter are referred by specialized associations that are committed to continuing their social support.If homeless people need a roof over their heads, they need human relations just as much. From the cohabitation of young working people and homeless people are born relationships of friendship and gratuity; this social mix is a factor of insertion.

Entourage

Human warmth network
Entourage fights against the loneliness of homeless people by encouraging local residents to "dare to meet" their street neighbors. Entourage is a social network dedicated to solidarity, which allows local residents, along with associations, to act together to make their neighborhoods more humane.The Entourage team combines social action professionals, homeless people and digital experts. The project was founded by Jean-Marc Potdevin, a former successful web entrepreneur, who is now committed to putting his expertise and energy at the service of the social link.Our action is innovative:because it allows local residents, who often do not know how to act in the face of extreme poverty, to each become actors of change;because it takes advantage of technologies to bring together populations who do not speak to each other and who are on the same territory;because it aims above all at the relationship, the meeting; beyond material aid. Join local caring initiatives around homeless people;Access tutorials to better understand the world of the street and help you take the plunge;Inform you about the associations and social services available nearby.The application also allows associations to better monitor and coordinate their field actions.

Cartooning for Peace

For a better understanding of different cultures and religions, through editorial cartoons as a universal language.
What we are:Cartooning for Peace is an international network of committed press cartoonists who fight, with humor, for the respect of cultures and freedoms.Our history:Cartooning for Peace is an association born from an event and an encounter. The bloody reactions to the publication of the cartoons of Mohammed in the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, on September 30, 2005 led to a founding meeting: on October 16, 2006, Kofi Annan, Nobel Peace Prize winner and Secretary General of the United Nations, and Plantu, journalist and cartoonist at the French newspapers Le Monde and L'Express, brought together  twelve international cartoonists around a conference "Unlearning intolerance - drawing for peace". - Our commitment -Cartooning for Peace promotes fundamental freedoms and democracy.The association is particularly committed to exercising freedom of expression as defined in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media." - Our values -Cartooning for Peace is committed to the respect of pluralism of cultures and opinions. In the exhibitions, publications and meetings we organize, we are careful to show the diversity of cartoonists' points of view on the same subject.Cartooning for Peace fights prejudice and intellectual conformism. In the face of extremism, we denounce outrages, mock false certainties, counter anathemas and strive to dismantle impostures.Cartooning for Peace is respectful in disrespect. We do not seek to humiliate  beliefs and opinions. We skirt around the forbidden with humor.Cartooning for Peace takes into account the risk that a drawing published on the Internet may appear out of context, in a few seconds, in the four corners of the globe. The association is careful not to make press cartoons a factor in aggravating conflicts.Convinced that the cartoonist often expresses before anyone else and with acuity the shudders of society that will make tomorrow's news, Cartooning for Peace strives to bring out debates of which our societies are not necessarily aware yet. - Our actions -Cartooning for Peace allows cartoonists to dialogue with each other and to confront their different ideological nuances. Its network gives visibility and support to those who are prevented from freely exercising their profession or whose freedom is threatened.Cartooning for Peace uses the educational value of press cartoons to denounce intolerance. The association gives a voice to young people and makes them aware of the major problems facing society.Cartooning for Peace brings press cartoons closer to their audience. We encourage meetings between cartoonists and a wide audience, and publish thematic exhibitions offering a critical and ironic look at society. Finally, we publish press cartoons in paper and digital form.As a tool for freedom of expression, Cartooning for Peace is a forum, a meeting place, for all those who reject intolerance and all forms of dogmatism.

La Source des Sources

Art at the service of the social
Created in 1991 on the initiative of the painter Gérard Garouste, La Source is an association of general interest with a social and educational vocation through artistic expression, aimed at children and young people in difficulty, as well as their families.It was born from the conviction that artistic creation can come to support social action, in order to fight against exclusion in all its forms. Now established in ten mainly rural departments, it carries the idea that art is a fundamental actor in the construction of society and contributes to the valorization of the individual from his youngest age.The source proposes workshops for young people and occasionally for families. Developed in all artistic fields (painting, engraving, sculpture in clay, wood, forging, photography, video, installation, performing arts, street art, land art, writing, animated film, etc.) and conducted by professional artists sensitive to the objectives of the association, these workshops are made up of small groups of 10 to 12 participants, in a concern for individual quality accompaniment.Each workshop is built in pairs by an artist and a person from the educational team of The Source. Both of them work in close collaboration with the social workers of the area where they are located (educators, social workers, but also teachers). They ensure the proper integration of the children and follow up throughout the year on those who are in the most difficulty.These workshops allow the young people to build themselves by developing their creativity, by making them responsible on a personal and collective level and by working with them on self-confidence and initiative.It favors the social mix of children from 3 to 18 years old, often confronted with social and/or academic difficulties. It is a great tool for working in conjunction with social partners and the teaching profession, and is also a beneficial place for strengthening the family fabric. It is open to local communities and schools, with which it develops specific workshops.The Source accompanies children over the long term, sometimes more than ten years. It allows an effective recognition of the talent of these young people through public events promoting their work and shows.The role of the association is also to make the world of art and culture accessible to the entire local population, through exhibitions and by supporting young artists through residencies.

Fondation Le Refuge

Protecting LGBT+ youths
Recognized as a Public Utility, Le Refuge Foundation shelters and accompanies young LGBT+ people, aged 14 to 25, rejected by their parents, driven out of the family home, because they are homosexual or trans and/or questioning their identity. Accompanying and housing young gay, lesbian and transgender people in a wandering situationBecause it's not always easy to make the right decisions when you're in a broken situation... Raison d'êtreIn France, the lack of response to these distress calls is glaring, especially when we know that the majority of suicide attempts occur during adolescence when these young people find themselves isolated, without a social group to belong to and struggling with real or anticipated rejection from the family environment. The beneficiariesThese are young people, aged 14 to 25, mostly facing social difficulties and in a situation of family breakdown. Many of them show uneasiness about their homosexuality/transidentity or are in total denial.It is certain that young people who are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation or their questioning gender identity need specific care and a reassuring, guilt-relieving listening ear... Moreover, we must not forget the prejudices and discrimination they are victims of within the marginalized populations themselves. They do not find their place naturally within the structures of common law accommodation such as the CHRS, as Dimitri testifies: "This environment has destroyed me more than anything else. I wonder if the staff is homophobic, poorly trained in this issue or simply incapable of hearing and understanding it. (Le Monde, September 15, 2005)The objectivesWe offer a multidisciplinary follow-up during which our volunteers accompany the young person welcomed on a daily basis by helping him or her build a life project.It is a month of withdrawal, of pause, of reflection on the life project that we help him or her build. The young person is sheltered from need. He is surrounded by people who care about him and who do not judge him. They can free their minds and say, "I'm here. What do I do now? What do I decide to do?" If his decision is to reconnect with his parents to try to get back into the home environment, we make contact with the family mediator and with the family. We try to re-establish the relationship, taking into account the wishes of each person. Nothing is imposed. If the young person decides to make a total break with his family and his region of origin, we help him look for a job and housing.

Finance innovative projects with high social impact.

Charitips has chosen to help charities or foundations that respond to the great social needs or problems of our time. We pay particular attention to ensuring that the projects demonstrate their effectiveness, their social impact and are totally financially transparent.

These charities are the image of today's citizen commitment: creative, connected, in action, listening, at the service of the most underprivileged and of all those who are struggling to keep up with the societal changes of this early 21st century.

A large number of the charities present on Charitips are also labeled "La France s'engage", an additional recognition, if any were needed, of their exemplarity.
