The economic impact is clear, in terms of family budgets and commercial and productive activities. The social costs in the medium-long term will be dramatic: the virus will cause more distrust towards foreigners, disadvantged part of communities, unemployed people.

We must act following three pillars: education (both devices and digital contents), protection and psychological support


To guarantee remote accompaniment for children we'll implement the IT equipment that will be available to families with fewer financial opportunities and with limited IT equipment at home and we'll implement digital platform with educational contents. Once the isolation and emergency phase will be overcome, we'll be able to focus on listening and supporting action towards families. We are committed to give individual protection devices as medical face masks and hand sanitizer for our partners
