We have decided to redistribute 5 % of TPF’s earnings after tax to organizations ensuring children welfare (food, education, security, …). The year 2015 is the first year of implementation of this process, based on our results in 2014. We are particularly pleased to have received the agreement of our minority shareholders in TPF’s subsidiaries all around the world. The selection of these organisations resulted in the establishment of committees in various countries involving our staff. In 2017, the Foundation was able to support eleven associations financially.
- Parrain Ami Asbl
Support to foster families providing care for children 0 – 12 years old in difficult family situations on an ad-hoc and regular basis.

Day care center for 21 children and adolescents with serious behavior problems (psychotic and neurotic disorders, autism). In 2016, thanks to the TPF Foundation, the day care center “Les Godillots” has been able to convert a carport into a covered courtyard so that the children can spend their playtime outside, whatever the weather.

Help for Children and Adolescents in the community of Gesteria (Barra Longa locality, Mina Gerais State)
In 2017, we helped children and adolescents in the community of Gesteira, a community particularly affected by the dam catastrophe of the mining company Samarco in 2015. Teenagers were studying or helping their parents on livestock or agricultural farms, but after the accident, a lot of them started taking drugs and children began to experience learning difficulties in school because their families lost everything: their house, livelihoods, social and cultural ties. Given their situation, TPF organized several events helping them to overcome trauma, to find self-esteem and, in the case of young people, to benefit from training leading the way to the labour market.
A first event was organized on the occasion of Children’s Day, celebrated in Brazil on October 12th. On the program: fun activities, workshops and a play, in association with the Osquindô Club and the active participation of local schools, parents and an NGO. A Christmas party was also organized in the same spirit
Junior Achievement Association – Recife
Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs. Our employees are volunteers to help and prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.
The Empowering Children Foundation (formerly Nobody’s Children Foundation)
This Polish NGO has several objectives: the protection of children and adolescents against violence and sexual abuse, the improvement of the situation of children participating in legal procedures as witnesses, or the aid and assistance to children and adolescents as well as their families.
Fandry Foundation (Bombay)
Established in 2014, the Fandry Foundation contributes to the educational success of tribal children and focuses on maximizing local resources within tribal communities of Maharashtra State. Its goals are to collect donations, support educational initiatives and teach organic farming to farmers. IT infrastructure was needed in order to implement e-learning solutions and ensure access to quality education for children in the Nashik, Ratnagiri and Kolhapur tribal areas. TPF decided to help by buying several computers.
Emalaikat Foundation – San José (Muketuri) Maternal and Child Care Center
The San José center aims to combat food and nutrition insecurity in the Shoa region and specifically in the village of Muketuri with 15,100 inhabitants. About 320 children aged 4 to 6 receive the most comprehensive care every day (nutrition, growth and health monitoring, primary school preparation). The San José centre is also a place of food production where their mothers can receive training. Among achievements, we can mention: the creation of an orchard with localized irrigation system (drip) or the construction of a chicken coop with 150 hens and a stable with 12 dairy cows.
This Spanish NGO collects old bicycles in order to repair them and distribute them to schoolchildren who sometimes live more than 7 kilometres away from their school. Since they can not have lunch in school, some of them have to travel four times a day. The objectives of this project are many: to improve the conditions of access to school, to combat fatigue and absenteeism, to motivate schoolchildren to participate in classes, to help schools by providing them with equipment, to contribute to best practices for school governance.
