The Air Liquide Foundation is supporting La Fondation des Maisons Familiales Rurales, whose mission is to provide vocational, apprenticeship-based training for young people from underprivileged rural areas.
In order to ensure that the students of the training center of Campo Verde in the north of Porto receive good quality training in the best conditions, the association is buying new equipments thanks to the Air Liquide Foundation support:
- Installation of a drip irrigation system for greenhouses,
- Buying a second-hand minibus and repairing an existing minibus. The repairs will allow students to do practical work as part of the mechanics course. Public transportation being very underdeveloped in rural areas, the two minibuses will help the students travel between their place of work and the centre.
