Last December the Rava Foundation inaugurated the eight school in Central Italy. It's a maternity school located in the village of Pieve Torina, one of the communities most affected by the earthquake, where 90% of the buildings are inagible to this date. The inhabitants of Pieve Torina have lived for two years in temporary small wooden houses provided by the Civil Protection. 

As soon as this project was completed, the Foundation commited to build a sports center dedicated to the students of all levels, and a multiuse center for the families, for a total of 740 sqm.

The new structure will form a conntinuum with the school recently delivered. It will maintain the same construction tipology and will be acccessible directly from the main road and will also be directly connected to the school.

The building will consist of a main volume, occupied by the actual gym and a smaller cue, divided on two floors, which will house the changing rooms, on the ground floor, and a gym on the first floor. The gym will be able to accommodate a volleyball court and will stand in continuity with the outdoor garden. The gym service areas include a deposit for sports equipment, technical rooms, a local infirmary, locker rooms for students and locker rooms for teachers. Through an internal connecting staircase you will reach the first floor which will house a small gym with tools or for activities in small groups.

The choice of the area in which to raise the new school translates the will that this new building be a point of reference for the whole community. The central position and continuity with the communal garden, the very concept of spaces and the multiplicity of routes and accesses will offer the community a great usability and flexibility of use even during extra-school hours. To complete the endowment of spaces realized with the school, the gym, with its bigger dimensions, will offer the possibility to the citizens to meet again to carry out sports activities and aggregations generally useful to strengthen the sense of community. The internal space of the gym will continue to the outside with a partly paved and partly green space to be used for outdoor play or for events, to be completed with the provision of spaces serving the community.

We ask you to support this new project for the families of Pieve Torina.

Final report

The project has been fully funded.

Our medical activity at sea on board of the Italian Navy ships lasted almost 5 years. 250 highly specialized medical volunteers were dedicated to this project: anesthesiologists, gynecologists, pediatricians, infectivologists, internal medicine and emergency doctors, midwives, intensive therapy nurses, for a total of almost 1500 man/days. The current situation in the Mediterranean does not require our medical teams to be deployed, but we continue to assist mothers and children with several projects on the Italian territory.

We are thankful to our GlobalGiving donors for their generous support. Please continue to follow our work in Italy and Central and South America through our website!

Photo story of the works in progress

We would like to share with our donors the photo story of the enormous progress our rebuilding force has been making to assure the buildings, living spaces and infrastuctures of the NPH home are restored or rebuilt. Images serve better than words to show our commitment to giving our pequenos and the NPH community in Miacatlàn a safe and comfortable place to live, study, work.

The efforts of the last months have been directed mainly to the total remaking of the water piping network. With the refurbishing of the dorms underway, the project of brand new homes has been approved: the building foundations for new homes are now a reality in the middle of the main garden.

Thank you very much and Happy New Year from our children at NPH Mexico!
