HBG Holding, along with its shareholders, plays a great role in the Tunisian economy and in society in general. Thus, because of values shared within the Group and with its partners, HBG Holding had to crystallize its hopes and its high ambition of developing the company into the Hédi Bouchamaoui Foundation.
The Hédi Bouchamaoui Foundation, just like the founder of the Group, is highly focused on two major axes: education and culture, the two major key-elements of the economic and social development of our society.
Thus, the Foundation, created in 2016, started its activities with the renovation and of 12 primary schools in the region of Gabes. This effort has enabled hundreds of young pupils to return to school in better conditions and in a way to decrease the rate of school drop-out of the region.
In June 2016, the Hédi Bouchamaoui Foundation signed an agreement with the Ministry of Education establishing partnership for the implementation of an educational and cultural project which aims to upgrade the quality level of education.
The project aims to minimize the drop-out rates through maintenance and enhancement of some schools. It also works on providing other various schools with equipment and materials, as well as supporting clubs activities.
The HEDI BOUCHAMAOUI Foundation chose to focus on the renovation of primary schools in Gabes governorate. The signing of the convention was preceded by the selection of the 12 priority schools, with close collaboration with the Regional Delegation of Education in Gabes. Classrooms, health infrastructure and the general environment of the school were the priority, to ensure the optimal climate for education.
