The Association Raphaelle Marie is a lay association created by the Handmaids which promotes sports, cultural and leisure activities for the children of the Chènevières neighbourhood. Its main goal is to provide a motivating educational space, in close collaboration with parents, and to create the basis for responsible social relations and civic behaviour. It is open every wednesday afternoon.
School holidays are a great opportunity to visit museums, such as the Cité des Sciences, Orsay Museum, Musée des Arts et Métiers (Arts and Crafts Museum), in order to develop children’s curiosity, as well as their artistic and scientific knowledge. Sports activities are also organized, so that children develop their physical and intellectual skills. Team skills are also strongly encouraged.
