"I have learnt that sometimes you lose and sometimes you win. I have also learnt to get up early and to have more self-confidence ." Mnikelo Dladla, 11, South Africa ( Valued Citizens Initiative ).
Some 98 children from 12 countries and four continents met in Paris from 17 and 26 July 2011 for the second Fraternity Cup gathering organised by the federative charity La Voix de l’Enfant and its member associations. Renault also partnered the event. “ Beyond a sporting event, the Fraternity Cup intends to be a rich exchange full of surprises between the young people on issues such as social and cultural diversity, integration through sport, the refusal of discrimination and the fight against violence ”, Martine Brousse, representative of the charity La Voix de l’Enfant , explained.
On the agenda were ten days of shared activities: including sport, art and culture and fun. The event ended with the presentation of the sports awards at the Emile Anthoine Stadium in Paris. Renault has been involved in this adventure since Valued Citizens Initiative ( VCI ) joined La Voix de l’Enfant . " This is a very special partnership, because as well as financial help, Renault is involved in an ongoing humanitarian project ", Ms Brousse said. Renault has supported Valued Citizens Initiative since it was launched ten years ago.
