Our identity

Notre identité

Since the creation of our Foundation, we have dedicated our commitment to the most disadvantaged, through social and societal actions, particularly in the rural world.

This approach was crowned by our recognition as a public utility association in 2016. In order to strengthen the impact of our commitments, we chose in 2018 to orient our approach towards social innovation.

Through this new positioning, we aim to create a strong network with actors in our ecosystem, in order to develop more effective and sustainable solutions that have a tangible impact on the beneficiaries for whom they are intended.

With #WeChange, Abdelkader Bensalah Foundation mobilises the collective intelligence of social and societal development actors around a space for thinking and co-construction. Through this program, the Foundation aims to provide tools and educational materials to raise awareness, develop a common vision and strengthen synergies between the various components of the ecosystem.
