Eiffage Foundation: educational farm near Cergy-Pontoise mobilising people in difficulty

The Ferme d'Ecancourt in the Val d'Oise welcomes a wide range of people, helping in particular to remobilise young people in difficulty, on specialised prevention schemes or disengaged from school. It has been renovating its infrastructure with the support of the Eiffage Foundation.
 

Located in Jouy-le-Moutier (Val d'Oise), the Ferme d’Ecancourt has a teaching farm complete with 100 animals, a cottage and a teaching garden. 18,000 people enjoy free access to the farm every year. In 2017, the association developed its social initiatives focusing on helping people in difficulty: for instance 44 young people on specialised prevention schemes have attended residential field trips or training at the farm. Initiatives have also been launched to help fight against disengagement from school.

The association has been renovating its aging infrastructure located in an 18th century farmhouse, with funding from the Eiffage Foundation.

No less than three employee supporters have been involved in the project: Brice Richard, site manager, Florent Bonnet, operations manager, both at Eiffage Construction, and Dorothée Morel, works engineer (civil engineering works) at the Infrastructures division.
