    What people say

    “Why this project? Because regaining self esteem leads to self confidence, because mobility causes encounters, exchanges and alterity. Because inclusion must take into account a necessary preparation to the job market and social integration. From becoming oneself to becoming free, for everyone to find a rightful place in society, in Europe, in the world.”
    Frédéric Weber, president of Association FenêtreS
