The root of our actions is the parental matrix founded on the direct experience of vulnerable children. For us, giving yourself as a parent means looking at each child as one would look at their own sons or daughters, and putting at the center their most pressing needs.

This vision is comprehensive of the children’s needs. It translates to targeted actions directed at them, but also towards three strategic actors: family, community and institution. Dynamics of change can only be brought forwards when all these groups come together. With this gaze we move towards a future rooted in our core pillars.

Every day since 1968 we have been committed to building a more just and inclusive world in which no child feels alone and everyone may grow happily. All our actions arise from the combination of 3 objectives: to ensure protection, to guarantee inclusion, to achieve psycho-emotional well-being of all boys and girls. Solely in this manner can we bring about profound and lasting change in their lives.


We take care of every lonely child
with professionalism and love
as if they were our own.

Our  Theory of Change

The working model we use and the Theory of Change it follows, derives from the parental gaze we have always directed towards children.

One model,  three directions

To generate profound and lasting change in their lives, we develop our actions along three paths:

Prevent, reduce and respond to cases of abuse, human trafficking, exploitation (economic and sexual), harmful customary practices and neglect.

Tackle child poverty, inequalities and barriers to social mobility that prevent children from accessing education, health services, water, hygiene, food and the full realization of their rights.

Ensure adequate psychological and emotional development, within a welcoming familial and social context, attentive to the needs of the child; support children who have lived traumatic experiences and abuse, or find themselves in situations of cultural and educational poverty, to rediscover serenity and self-awareness.

A tangible  impact

We measure the impact of our projects through measurable indicators capable of highlighting the change we are making in the lives of many children.

The 4 signs of change  

Reduce their state of vulnerability. Advance education, health, psycho-emotional well-being, awareness of their rights and put into action tools to fulfill these.

Ability to recognize the state of vulnerability of one’s children, present greater awareness and aptitude in their role of parent. Increased resilience.

Ability to recognize the vulnerability of children. Willingness to actualize protection and inclusion systems.

Improve the ability to provide protection for children. Show commitment towards providing appropriate services.
