LYRECO FOR EDUCATION
SUPPORTING EQUAL ACCESS TO EDUCATION IN THE POOREST COUNTRIES
Committing all our employees to devote time to charitable operations is part of Lyreco company culture. Through the Lyreco For Education programme, Lyreco employees develop fund raising actions to give children living in poor conditions better access to education.
The objective is to increase school enrolment and reduce school drop out rate by improving the quality of education and learning conditions.
Funds are mainly raised through various activities and initiatives across our global subsidiaries.
