Our projects focus on two fields: education and sustainability.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela

In Italy, we work on projects on education about  global citizenship and and the shift between school and work. In foreign countries, we help with the construction of schools, the support of community schools and donations.

“Give a man a fish, feed [his] home for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed [him] for a lifetime.” – Confucius

In Italy, the project Stand Up promotes work reintegration for people who are having difficulties, whereas in developing countries we create the opportunity for long-term sustenance of families and give them the necessary tools to fight infant malnutrition.
