Expenses related to the construction of the orphanage-school meet the standards, rules and procedures in term of international cooperation.

The Foundation Jacqueline Lessard thank the generous support of businesses and organizations of Quebec partners who made possible this project : Groupe Jean Coutu, Pomerleau, Provencher Roy+associates, SM Group International and CIMA+and Couche-Tard, Fasken Martineau, Simplex, Laferté Renovation Centre, Air Transat, lg2, School Board of Montreal, Quebec, the Bombardier Foundation, Scotiabank and the Ministry of International Relations.
