Child protection

We protect children from every type of abuse and violence that is found on the streets, in the house or through economic and sexual exploitation. We protect children with our safe centers called “Le Case del Sole” and through our programs of intervention for children on the streets, working children, children who are victim of prostitution and the for the children in conditions of semi-domestic slavery.

Education

Education is the key to building peaceful and stable societies and breaking the poverty cycle.  All our interventions begin by guaranteeing the right to quality education, from pre-school care to technical courses for young adults. We offer scholarships, school materials, tutoring courses and afterschool activities.

 

Gender equality

Empowering women and giving them a voice reduces poverty and promotes sustainable development in their communities and in their countries. We place the protection of girls’ rights at the core of our interventions. We are committed to defending their right to life, freedom, education, equality, and protection with concrete field interventions and raising awareness campaigns.

“To help even just one child
is always a beautiful love story”
