President of the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation
When I took over as the President of the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation, I wanted to give it more resources to allow it to pursue its activities more widely.
I see it as an essential task of mine, and of Paris Saint-Germain through its Foundation, to help children embrace the wonderful values of sport, play a full part in sporting and educational activities and experience magical moments.
More than 180,000 children have taken part in the Foundation’s programmes since it was created, in September 2000.
The Foundation is at the heart of the Paris Saint-Germain family. It must also be at the heart of its local community and bring together those who, across the world, identify with its achievements and values. The Paris Saint-Germain Endowment Fund has been set up with this idea in mind, to allow our partners and friends to support and assist the Foundation in its new initiatives and projects.
The Foundation has taken on a new dimension with the opening of its first RED & BLUE School, in the 19th district of Paris. This afterschool program offers a wide range of sporting and educational activities to children aged 7 to 11, to guide them along the path to success. Initiatives such as this reflect the values of a responsible and socially engaged club that gives youngsters the chance to dream bigger dreams.
