The human

The mission of the Benoît Huot Foundation in a few words :

  • Provide financial support for student athletes with disabilities in sports so they continue their pursuit of academic and athletic excellence.
  • Provide bursaries for studies to young Paralympians.
  • Provide student athletes with disabilities, tools and training programs that allow young swimmers to practice their sport focused on the value of equity, inclusion, excellence and enjoyment.
  • Conduct awareness campaigns and preventive education in schools, particularly among young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, to educate them on the benefits associated with daily physical activity.
  • Receive donations, legacies and other similar contributions in cash, securities or real estate; administer such gifts, bequests and organize fundraising campaigns in order to raise funds for charitable purposes pursued by the Foundation.
