The Foundation partnered with the Monaco and Burkinabe Red Cross whose aim is to transform and install the Monegasque Pavilion from the 2015 Milan World Expo down in Burkina Faso.

In 2018 this pavilion will become a professional training centre most notably in hospitality. It will also be a first aid and CPR training centre which will focus on countries in the West African region. Additionally, an aquatic rescue centre will train lifeguards and swim instructors and will also raise public awareness in the surrounding schools.
