80,000 young people leave the French school system without qualifications. 50% of 3rd graders don't pass the written brevet exam in priority education networks. Heritage attendance is increasingly linked to social background, and fewer than one in two 15-year-olds have visited a cultural venue. More than 40% of young people in these 1,500 priority neighborhoods are unemployed.

This unfair situation generates tension and conflict. For this reason, Espérance banlieues pays particular attention to each child so that they can discover their talents and then develop them within French society.


A complementary player to the French national education system, Espérance banlieues responds to a challenge of educational and cultural equity. The association works to prevent school dropout from an early age. It passes on to children in the suburbs quality teaching and education, to which only the most privileged have access today.

Espérance banlieues acts to encourage the successful integration of young people and their families into French society. The schools in the network are convinced that getting to know and love a country is a prerequisite for building its future together. They help young people to grow up to become free and responsible citizens, able to commit themselves with pride to building their future and that of their country. By financing a new class, you are helping Espérance banlieues to perpetuate its action.

Recent result

Espérance banlieues demonstrates that, on a local scale, it reduces these educational and cultural inequalities. By the end of CP, 98% of pupils in the network's schools have a satisfactory command of reading words aloud. In priority education networks (REP), this average is 60%, and on a national scale, taking all educational sectors together, it is 68%. What's more, 97% of parents recommend their child's school.

The money will be used for

Espérance banlieues calls for a collective mobilization to combat these disparities, and is particularly aimed at companies wishing to respond to the educational challenge of these neighborhoods. 17 schools have already been created, in or near priority urban policy neighborhoods.


Financing a class means giving 15 students the tools they need to fully integrate into society as free, responsible citizens, able to commit themselves with pride to building their future.
