With its recently established Invest2Develop program the Atos Foundation aims to provide small ICT firms in developing countries with important ingredients for economic growth: knowledge, work and income.
Atos Foundation supports the needs of children in the areas of education and health in developing countries. During the last 30 years, the Foundation provided financial support to various projects of all types of organizations that contribute to the basic needs of the most disadvantaged schools, hospitals, libraries, nurseries and much more.
Since 2002 Atos Foundation offers a helping hand, literally, in the construction of schools and hospitals in developing countries. Meanwhile, several teams of Atos employees contributed to the construction of large surfaces of floors, walls, ceilings and roofs.
After a reassessment of the strategy, Atos Foundation is now focusing on initiatives in which the knowledge and expertise of Atos employees is mainly used.
Revenue comes from the Atos salary donation program and from donations through direct debit or a one-time gift.
Atos Foundation also organizes expeditions. Staff of Atos will go to the construction site for 2 weeks to help the locals with eg. to build a school or a health post or to renovate.
