Charity

Our charity work

Charity is a huge part of Lyreco Goodness, from local to global initiatives and causes.

Lyreco for education

We run and support a multitude of charities financially as well as by committing all employees to give time for charitable endeavours.

As well as our local work, we want to help some of the most vulnerable and most in need. We felt that we could do the most good for some of the world’s poorest communities by helping children access a better education. That’s why we set up Lyreco For Education.

The objective is to increase school enrolment and reduce school dropout rate by improving the quality of education and learning conditions.
