Principles

Whether in Quebec or elsewhere in the world, the work of the LÉGER FOUNDATION is based on fundamental principles such as:

 

  • sustainable development and citizen and community empowerment: the LÉGER FOUNDATION prioritizes support to local and community interventions that focus on strengthening individual capacities and community mobilization.
  • gender equality: through the implementation of its gender equality policy, the LÉGER FOUNDATION promotes gender equality and the essential role of women as agents of change in all FOUNDATION actions.
  • community engagement: the LÉGER FOUNDATION sees itself as a gateway for volunteers to contribute to local initiatives aimed at the general public and youth in particular, here and elsewhere in the world.
  • a shift towards youth: action for and with young people is instrumental in developing initiatives aimed at breaking the cycle of poverty and developing their capacity to become tomorrow’s leaders in the fight for justice and dignity.
