Our commitment to our community

In addition to its artistic vocation, the COGE and its young members express their interest in social causes by giving engagement and implication inside our community. The COGE is involved since its creation in many charity associations to support their efforts and development.

Association l'Envol

First year of its creation, the COGE Vocal Ensemble chooses to support the Envol's cause. All the benefits from the 14th of April 2005 concert in St Severin church (a musical journey called "Europa cantat") have been donated to the ENVOL organisation.

ENVOL, a non-profitable organisation ("Loi de 1901") created in 1994, aims to give hope and joy to children suffering from severe sickness, and encourage them to fight. In a secure and stimulating environment, children are taking charge in lots of leisure activities. He can participate to anything he wants.

Project "Choeur à coeur" to benefit to the non-profitable organisation "L'Arche des Enfants"


The benefits from the 24th of June 2004 in St Pierre de Montrouge church were entirely donated to the association "Arche des Enfants". The project, named "Choeur à Coeur", was born from the operational marketing DESS students' concern.

"Arche des Enfants", a non-profitable organisation ("Loi de 1901"), was created in 1998 by areligious nun sent in mission in Vietnam. Its concern is to fight children's poverty in this country. School being expensive and facultative, children have a scholar education only when their families can afford it. Parents beginning their work most of the time very early in the morning, children can't attend school and stay on their own the entire day.

In order to fight this concerning situation, "Arche des Enfants" today greets 150 M street children aged between 16 months and 6 years, in a centre created in Ho-Chi-Minh. From 7AM to 7PM, they are taken care of, fed and discover the joy of reading. Our donation permitted the centre to run during three months.
