In response to a dire need to support local underprivileged children, our centre - Antonio Bianchi’s House, opened in September 2010. We currently run a pre-school for 3 to 5-year-olds as well as academic classes and activities, we provide the little ones with a nutritious breakfast and lunch. These meals are often the only proper food they receive.
We also offer counselling as the children come from very challenging backgrounds and are in need of emotional support. Educating their parents and families as well, we conduct workshops teaching parenting and life skills. A visiting doctor and a dentist attend to the children for regular health checks and to give the children a break, they are also taken out on special trips and outings.
