Two employees of the French building construction insurance company EISL, who are based in Tunbridge Wells, have raised around £700 for Second Chance – a charity whose mission it is to integrate children of the French-speaking republic of Togo in Africa who have been left out back into society.
Stephanie Mossion started the Humanitarian Project within EISL in 2016 raising money for underprivileged children abroad, she has now joined forces with Boris Tchedre who is a Togolese national and brought Second Chance into the Humanitarian Project, to raise money for the children.
Together, they organise a themed quiz and raffle night once every two months at Saint John’s Yard pub in Tunbridge Wells in their Vintage Room. With the support of their colleagues, they have so far raised enough money to support the children for the academic year. At the time of publishing, there are over 40 children benefitting from the money raised.
Speaking exclusively to theknow, Ms Mossion and Mr Tchedre said, ‘We work in construction insurance for buildings and we think it’s our due to also build a better future. We are having fun while doing something good, and this is just the beginning of our journey, until we have fulfilled our task of helping these kids add something extra to their lives, on top of academic knowledge, we will not rest.’
