Lyreco For Education

When a child goes to school, a nation grows
LYRECO FOR EDUCATION RESIZED

10,000 employees encouraging equal access to schooling in the poorest countries  

At Lyreco we have it made it part of our company culture to encourage all of our employees to make time for charity operations.

Therefore we have developed the Lyreco for Education program which enables our employees to start fund raising actions with the goal of providing children living in poor conditions better access to schooling.

With this new program we aim to increase school intake and decrease school dropout rate by optimizing the quality of education and learning conditions, thereby focusing on ethnical minorities.
