We have been operating in Cambodia since 2006, working on projects in 40 villages in the provinces of Sihanoukville, Kampot and Kandal. In all our projects, we focus on young children as the starting point to encourage the country’s socioeconomic development.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo has been afflicted by conflicts and political instability for many years, and the authorities there are struggling to meet the basic needs of the population. Over the last few years, the country has been subjected to several complex and drawn-out periods of violence that have primarily affected the civilian population. Young girls and boys bear the brunt of this situation.
The severe humanitarian crisis that Iraq has now been enduring for several years has driven us to intervene in this context, with emergency projects aimed at improving the living conditions of girls and boys, guaranteeing them assistance and support in particular in the field of education and child protection.
Our work in Italy aims to improve the living conditions of girls and boys, because through them we can bring about concrete change in the communities in which they will grow up. We promote initiatives to support their education, wellbeing and development.
In 2017, we decided to intervene in Libya. The devastating humanitarian situation drove us to begin operating in a country where the civilian population is suffering the terrible consequences of the protracted political crisis.
We have been operating in Mozambique since 1988. It was the first country where we intervened to defend the right of boys and girls to be children. Today, we work in around 144 communities in the provinces of Maputo, Sofala and Inhambane.
We have been working in Nepal since 2003; we operate in 42 villages in the districts of Chitwan, Makwanpur, Kathmandu and Lalitpur. Our projects aim to improve the living conditions of boys and girls in the country’s most remote areas. We also work to guarantee that the fundamental rights of women affected by the civil war are respected, and to support victims of the devastating 2015 earthquake.
