#RewriteTheFuture - Save the Children - € 50,000
The UniCredit Foundation renews its support for Save the Children's initiatives for education, fighting poverty and child protection
For over 100 years, Save the Children has been fighting to save children at risk and guarantee them a future. In 2019, it worked in 54 countries impacting the lives of 3.8 million children and implemented 291 projects. Save the Children has been present in Italy since 1999 and last year it supported almost 81,611 children with 98 projects focused on education, fighting poverty and child protection. Covid 19 was not only a health emergency, but also a socio-economic emergency, affecting the lives of millions of children and reducing the supply of childcare services across Italian regions.
In light of this, Save the Children has launched an intervention - within the national Rewrite the Future campaign - to support families in poverty and children in educational poverty. In the Punti Luce (Light Spots - centers located in the suburbs to support regional education) in Marghera, Prato, Potenza and Scalea, study support activities will be offered, and economic support will be provided to families.
Through its contribution, the Foundation is taking part in this project enabling it to reach more than 600 beneficiaries in four Punti Luce throughout the country, covering the north, center and south, while material support will be provided to 32 families.More specifically, study support activities are planned to take place 5 days a week in the
afternoon, in close cooperation with schools and teachers that will help children to improve their performance at school.
The program involves close cooperation between schools and the Punti Luce. In addition, support is provided for families in vulnerable socio-economic conditions: During the emergency phase, assistance is provided for basic needs, to relieve the pressure on families.
