Vignobles Bonfils has entered into a partnership with the Saint-Pierre Foundation by donating part of the buildings and land belonging to Château Millegrand in Trèbes, so that they can benefit children with behavioural difficulties from the Saint-Pierre Millegrand institute.
The partnership will enable the Saint-Pierre Foundation to extend the institute’s initial project by providing children with support as they learn pre-vocational skills, with a particular focus on nature-related occupations. Passing on a love for the land resonates perfectly with Bonfils family values.
The Bonfils family is strongly committed to values involving sharing expertise, along with the family and children. It is perpetuating the legacy of Château Millegrand which historically has welcomed people requiring help for social integration.
The Saint-Pierre Foundation, which has been declared of public utility, plays a major part in health and child protection issues. Building on one hundred years of experience and constant innovation of the Saint-Pierre Institute, France’s leading paediatrics hospital for follow-through care and rehabilitation for nearly 10,000 children a year, the foundation provides help for all children who need increased innovation in areas of care relevant to them.
Our mission requires us to provide unwavering support for children – every aspect and every one of them.
The foundation’s objective is to execute projects revolving around four major themes:
Saint-Pierre Millegrand Institute
The Saint-Pierre Millegrand Therapeutic, Educational and Teaching Institute (ITEP) welcomes 54 children and teenagers from 6 to 18 years old with behavioural and conduct disorders. Its mission is to promote children’s personal development by taking an active part in supporting their independence and social and educational integration so that they can return to an ordinary living environment.
