Bonduelle employees get involved in a development aid project

Bonduelle's commitment couldn't exist without its employees. Employees are getting involved in the Aponh development project in Cameroon. The objective of the project is to contribute to a sustainable improvement in living conditions for local populations by helping beneficiaries with their own projects.

“Aponh, a project that reflects what we stand for and brings us together”

We decided to partner with the IECD, an NGO that has been working in Cameroon since 1992. The project involves creating a special cultivation unit to assist farmers and entrepreneurs. This means that Bonduelle's employees can provide practical help by sharing their expertise, skills and experience. We are also supporting an orphanage and a school (“Les Moineaux”) by continuously improving learning conditions for pupils. After intense emotional experiences at the Ecole des Moineaux, we renamed the project “Aponh”, which means “OK, all going well” in Bamileke, a dialect in Cameroon.

Everyone can help with the Aponh project by putting the expertise they have acquired in their work at Bonduelle to good use. 

Since the launch of the project in 2012, approximately 20 employees have volunteered to go to Cameroon to help beneficiaries of the program in agriculture, commerce, marketing, management and information technology.

This year, for example, two employees went to Cameroon to support the development of agronomic activities by working with 66 local producers.

Employees can also help with the project without going all the way to Africa. 

Several times a year, employees can join forces regardless of where they’re based and raise funds for Aponh. Donations have already been used to finance more than 400 back-to-school kits for children at the Ecole des Moineaux (1 uniform, 1 bar of soap, 1 notebook and 1 pen) and to build shelters for producers and a fence for the school.

Aponh brings the company together in a shared project that reflects the Group's values. Everyone can contribute, regardless of their location or industry! “We are all Aponh!”
