One story

Collibri Foundation supports young people in difficult situations. We’ll contribute € 1 million to educational projects from 2017 to 2019. In the last ten years, we've already given € 2.1 million to support vulnerable youngsters.

Our projects

Apart from initiatives in the South, we also support projects in Belgium. In addition to this, we want to connect young people from different backgrounds and cultures. This allows us to stimulate their social involvement. Our ambassadors form the bridge between the Collibri Foundation, the young people, and the partners. 

How do we choose our projects?

We make the conscious choice to support a small number of projects. This allows us to work intensively with our partners and ambassadors, and together turn these projects into success stories.

Foreign projects

Fighting inequality remains a great challenge to this day. The millennium goals have not yet been achieved. We use the Human Development Index as a guideline and mainly chose projects with a low score. We also choose regions where Colruyt Group can start a chain project concerning sustainable products. This allows us to reach both the local active adults and the young people. This way, we want to achieve both economic and social development.

Projects in Belgium

Although education in Belgium is democratised, it turns out that young people do not always have the best chances. In our country, too, young people's socio-economic backgrounds play an important role in their chance for success. (For example boost We work with, among others, the King Baudouin Foundation.)

Who do we work with?

For all our projects, we work together with experts such as foundations and universities. They guarantee, among other things, the local follow up and evaluation of the project, its implementation and the consequent follow up and reporting. Together with the partners, we are also looking for ways to contribute to the connection between the North and the South, from our own expertise and network.

Propose a project

We are always interested in new project proposals. We would like all the projects we support to fit within our mission. That is why we created several objectives:

  1. The focus should be on young people between 16 and 25
  2. The focus should be on quality education
  3. The focus should be on social development in the region
