Quatorze, the Compagnons Bâtisseurs, students from HEC and ENSA Paris-Belleville, as well as Ecodrom met for a weekend to install a sanitary unit (showers + toilets) for the 37 Roma inhabitants of the Saint-Antoine Street shantytown. The structures appealed to the crowdfunding platform Les Petites Pierres to finance the purchase of building materials. Mobilizing, gathering, helping, building, sharing: this was the programme of around thirty young student volunteers who helped to improve the living conditions of the people present.
