After ten years of patronage, Maisons du Monde pledged its long-term commitment to the protection of forests and biodiversity by creating the Maisons du Monde Foundation in late 2015. As of 2021, it becomes the endowment fund Maisons du Monde Foundation.
The MDM Foundation contributes to the protection of forests and trees all over the world, wherever urgent action is needed.
The MDM Foundation provides financial support and assists associations in implementing conservation programmes on the ground, aimed at and led by local populations. Since the end of 2015, we have supported 37 not-for-profit projects in 14 countries around the world.
When we all play our part, we can continue in our work to protect trees and forests. As such, the MDM Foundation is introducing programmes for the general public to improve environmental awareness and reconnect with nature.
For 60 years, the Institute has been fighting to save chimpanzees and preserve biodiversity in Gombe National Park, Tanzania.
The MDM Foundation launched “Aux Arbres!” in 2018 to contribute to the conservation of forests and trees and rebuild the connection between humankind and nature. The programme aims to raise awareness of forest conservation to children and adults alike, present solutions that are within their reach, and invite them to act both individually and collectively.
