This year EDP Sciences wished to give financial support the team of 2 students from ECP, Hubert MAHIU and Pierrick MASSIOT and give materials to children for the humanitarian association « Enfants du désert ».
The Raid 4L Trophy is a true humanitarian and sporting adventure for students between 18 and 28 years old. The competition is based on orientation not speed. In this competition success is making it to the finish line. In getting there participants discover the real meaning of helping one another.
In addition to their lust for wide open spaces, the teams transport classroom materials in their 4Ls to be given to the poorest children in Morocco. Solidarity is deeply ingrained in the DNA of the 4L Trophy, this is shown by the emotion experienced each year by participants during the ceremony to handover donations organised in partnership with "Enfants du désert", this is one of the high points of the adventure.
