Dear friend,

Here’s some updates for you, regarding our social housing project in Fondazione Tuendelee Onlus.


In September, Tuendelee celebrated its first ten years! To make the occasion, the whole centre held an open house event. Kids running around, tasty Italian food, sensory path and workshops, and so many wonderful people!

But the highlight of the day were the testimonials coming from some of the families which took part of the social housing project in the past. How moving was to sense their gratitude and appreciation!


What else? Well… it’s been a period full of goodbyes at Tuendelee. One of our long-time family units has finally taken flight, leaving the nest! In fact, the parents achieved job stability, which gave the family self-sufficiency as well as the chance to find housing in an autonomous way.

Hence, we had to say goodbye to this wonderful family, which has been filling our rooms with joy, happines and warmness, straight from Africa.


Tuendelee is a very dynamic reality, and after this bittersweet farewell, the social housing project is already welcoming two new families. After rough sea and choppy waters, they have landed at Tuendelee, and we all look forward to welcome them and give them a chance for rebirth.


With a donation, you can make the difference and help us welcome and support families which are struggling both economically and socially. You can do it here

Are you already overwhelmed with good news?!

As you may have noticed, our Social Housing project have achieved lots of results and hosted more and more women in hardships.

Let’s so meet your curiosity with a new brand story – on May, a very young Nigerian mum entered the program with her little sweet daughter.

Letting back her past as a victim of human trafficking, she has now the opportunity to guarantee a brightful future to her daughter and she’s not going to throw it away.

For the first two months from her welcoming, our operators have assessed her parenting skills and have come to the conclusion that through Social Housing she’ll finally acquire all the necessary capabilities to become an autonomous and strong mum and woman. The pathway to these achievements may be long and tortuous, but along with her outlook on life changing, she’ll finally be proud of her self!

She’s really grateful of this opportunity and willing to do her best – anything is easier when you’re surrounded by loving and caring educators who are like friends.

She’s not alone! We’re all taking this trip together!

While this young mum has just started her journey, another mother is about to complete it: she’s now ready to independently cope with the outside world and any day-to-day difficulty.

These are only two example of what YOU have contributed to managed so far!

Thank you very much from the bottom of our heart!

First of all, we would like to thank you all for the great support you gave us during the Little by Little campaign. Thanks to your commitment, the result has been even greater than we expected!

Our families have spent an April full of surprises and news: a family in fact greets the Tuendelee structure in order to follow a path in complete autonomy: obviously, the operators and volunteers of Tuendelee have tried, where possible, to give their own small /big contribution by putting a table at your disposal; who some chairs, who thought to check if the washing machine of the new apartment was working, ready to repair it in the case.

New families instead enter the difficult and picturesque world of Social Housing: one of these comes from the CO-HOming project because it has been able to take some steps towards a new parenting dimension, aware that parenting does not only mean giving birth to a child but also knowing how to see them grow and learn interesting things about life every day.

Speaking of learning, the boys of the afterschool learned how our solar system is and how the human body, similar to the planets, gravitates around some concepts like "oxygen" "hydrogen" and other molecules of the chemistry of basis. There is still a way to go for them too!

We have great news from our Social Housing project! Two new families have been welcomed in a renovated apartment, which has now three bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, a laundry room and a space entirely dedicated to play. The apartment is dedicated to lone-parent households living in a difficult economic and social situation, in particular mothers with their little children. The activity started in December, when the first family was welcomed. Today two moms with their two little daughters live in the apartment!

The welcomed families are being monitored by our specialized education staff, together with two volunteers, who are helping mothers to manage their everyday activities.

Through this new activity of co-homing, together with the welcomed families, we are willing to promote the value of cohabitation, which means for us a cooperative lifestyle focused on mutual support. In our opinion, this practice improves the quality of life, but above all it shows that smiling is not an extraordinary fact but an everyday experience!

We would like to take this occasion to thank you all once again, for the huge and fundamental support you give us every day! For this, we couldn’t be more grateful!

We have really good news from the Social Housing project! First of all, a family, which has been in the project for a long time, will have the possibility to move to a new home, at the beginning of next month. This is possible thanks to the commitment and the engagement of the mother, who worked hard and managed to give stability to the whole family.

Another housed family achieved a very important goal: after all the efforts they have done, they are finally  able to undertake the journey to reach another part of their family, so that they will reunite with them and live together.

These experiences are for us the proof that the housed women grow aware of the difficulties they had to deal with in their past; and it is precisely for this reason, that they are eventually able to face their lives with courage, hope and confidence. These important achievements are the ones that encourage us to carry on our actions and to never stop believing.

Meanwhile, days pass by, cheered by our children’s laughs and brightened by every little goal that we manage to achieve.

We want to express once again our gratitude to all of you, for your fundamental support, without which this project would not be possible!
