Volunteering projects

project description

The association was founded in 1963. L'ESAT (Etablissement et Service d'Aide par le Travail) and the centre "Les Genêts d'Or" welcome 126 adults (age 20 to 60 years old) with mental or physical disabilities. Some of them come for the daytime, others are living in shared appartments or in their own appartments, which are looked after by the 65 staff members. The adults are working in professional workshops (like metalwork, floricultural work, gardening, woodwork..) or they are participating in other activities like artistic workshops, swimming, gardening, looking after the animals of the farm, cooking, ect.
