Our Organization

The Albatross Foundation was created in April 2011 in China and in 2017 in France by Ghislaine Bouillet-Cordonnier, who then passed on the Presidency to Lucille Deville.

Dr Ghislaine Bouillet-Cordonnier, founder

Ghislaine holds a Ph.D. in Financial Law from the University of Lyon III with a thesis on a US-France comparison of Venture Capital, a Master of Laws from Harvard University as well as masters degrees in European Law and Business Law from the University of Lyon III. She is a member of the New York and Paris Bars.

She has worked as a lawyer in international law firms in the United States and France and as legal counsel for the World Bank’s privatization programs in Africa based in Cameroon. Based in Cambodia, she then participated in the press freedom program and the UNESCO World Heritage listing of Lake Tonle Sape. Following this experience in international organizations, she joined major industrial groups based in Singapore and Shanghai as Senior Vice President Asia Pacific in charge of legal affairs and coordination of sustainable development programs.

Ghislaine is the founder of Albatross Foundation,(www.albatrossglobal.org), a non-profit organization created in China, Singapore and France, which aims to provide free education for sustainable development by training more than 12,000 children and distributing more than 72,000 books. Ghislaine is also the founder of the “e-commerce” website and publishing house create2donate (www.create2donate.org) which aims to promote authors, artists and other creators of intellectual values with a philanthropic profit distribution (1/3 to the value creator, 1/3 to Albatross Foundation, 1/3 to an NGO chosen by the buyer or by default Albatross). She edited the first collection of Albatross children’s books, published in three languages, Chinese, English and French, and launched at the Shanghai World Expo 2010.

Co-author of the International Treaty on Environmental Laws and articles on OHADHA and debt-for-nature swaps, Ghislaine is also the author of a book entitled “Shareholder Agreements and Statutory Privileges” published in January 2019 with the contribution of Law Professors and a Legalteck and of which 2/3 of the profits will fund Albatross.

She is currently practicing as a lawyer in a solidarity and Pro Bono framework with a selection for the Pro Bono Trophies of the Paris Bar. She won the Paris 2020 Pro Bono Trophy – Special Prize for Quebec, for her book “Pactes d’actionnaires et privilèges statutaires.
