<![CDATA[Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles at the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles]]>48702015-02-23T16:15:00-05:00http://www.rallyeaichadesgazelles.com/uploads/images/size1/nouvelle_a_la_une/VWNF_3D_fr_4CMV2.jpg
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has been a part of the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc for the past 5 years because the Rallye’s values are in line with the values of Volkswagen France: respect, commitment, friendliness, simplicity, creativity.

The automotive industry is a male-dominated environment. The company is seeking to change this by making the domain more accessible to women by promoting work-family balance, encouraging employee diversity at all levels and in all fields, and fostering a culture of gender equality within the company.

Sending 4 female employees to compete in the Rallye is a company-wide project
that builds loyalty and teamwork at every stage of the process, from the call for candidates through candidate selection, testing, navigation and driving training and, of course, the actual competition. Putting women behind the wheel of 2 Amaroks in this high-profile event is also an opportunity to show that it is possible to reduce fuel consumption, limit CO2 emissions and drive intelligently in all kinds of situations.

The commitment of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles
to the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc also extends to supporting Cœur de Gazelles through the Caravan of Smiles, created to provide free dental care to the children in the schools visited by the medical caravan during the Rallye.

In 2015, the entire Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles network is getting behind this initiative by donating 154 new wheelchairs to be given to people in need in the remote reaches of southern Morocco.

Transavia, the low-cost Air France-KLM airline, is proud to announce its partnership for the 25th edition of the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles. For the first time, the airline will be the event’s official airline, providing the use of 2 of its aircraft.

Transavia is also committing on a personal level by entering 2 teams in this year’s edition.  Four budding adventurers will have the opportunity to live a unique experience while bringing the company’s employees together to support them in this competition based on social commitment and pushing one’s limits, two values that are shared by Transavia.


<![CDATA[Tsarine Champagne, Partner of the 25th edition]]>48662015-02-19T10:48:00-05:00http://www.rallyeaichadesgazelles.com/uploads/images/size1/nouvelle_a_la_une/logo_tsarine.JPG
Introduced to the court of the Empress Anna Ivanovna, champagne quickly became the guest of honour at all banquets, especially at the table of Catherine the Great and the highest nobility in the Empire.

To pay tribute to this period in Russian history, Maison Chanoine, founded in 1730, created Tsarine Champagne.

Its exclusively designed, long, curved bottle bears certain similarities to the architecture of the great Russian monuments. Its emblematic colours, its rounded label and its evocative name are all redolent of the period of the great Russian dynasties.

 Tsarine Champagne will be the perfect accompaniment for the Gazelles for this 25th edition!
