The Italian Minister of Education, Stefania Giannini, stated that 15 schools have been damaged by the 24 August earthquake in Central Italy, affecting a total of 750 students. The Minister also added that for the moment the transfer of students in other schools is out of the question.
Mission Bambini Foundation launched its campaign for the people affected by the 24 August earthquake in Central Italy. "We want to make our contribution - said Goffredo Modena, president of Mission Bambini Foundation - to let children start the new school year in September in the best possible way, given in this tragic incident".
The aim of our fundraising campaign is to buy the schools materials - such as information technology and scientific equipment, interactive multimedia boards, computers, books for school libraries, and everything that is vital for the running of the schools in this moment of crisis. The Foundation has already started an assessment with the Regional School office of Lazio and the national association of Head teachers to understand the essential needs of the schools.
