We are delighted to announce that one of our many beloved clients, Fondation RAJA, have recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary!

Since 2006, the Fondation RAJA-Danièle Marcovici has developed its solidarity and sponsorship activities, which are entirely, ‘dedicated to women’. In 2016, the foundation celebrated its 10th anniversary with a large ceremony organised on the 6th of December at the Trianon Theatre in Paris.


The historic mission of the Foundation: to support projects that favour the empowerment of women worldwide.

The Foundation’s actions are centred around three main intervention axes:

  • Supporting women in the defence of their rights and in their struggle against violence.
  • Promoting education and social integration of women.
  • Boosting professional integration and financial independence of women.

In 10 years, the Foundation has supported 345 projects led by 219 associations in 48 countries, helping around 80,000 women. The budget of the Foundation was close to 1.3 million euros in 2016, representing 10 times more than the initial budget.
