Over the years we have supported several CESVI projects protecting children in Italy and the world. We firmly believe that children are the future of our societies and must be a key concern as we consider what lies ahead.
Cesvi is an Italian charity operating all over the world to sustain the most vulnerable and weakest members of society, promoting human rights to allow the less fortunate to achieve their aspirations within a sustainable development system.
In Manguinhos, children and young adults face danger on a daily basis. School dropout rates are very high, with the result that many uneducated youngsters roam the streets, becoming easy prey to recruitment by organized crime and so at great risk of getting involved in gang warfare and armed conflict.
Thanks to Héra, Cesvi has now bought and restructured another building, called the “House of Smiles”, at the edge of the favela. Our support has given children aged 3 to 18 a place where they can receive an education, food, psychological support, have fun, and be part of community.
Following the violent earthquake in 2016 that brought central Italy to its knees, causing 298 casualties and enormous structural and economic damage, Cesvi took action to provide psychological and education support to schools and families in the province of Ascoli Piceno, one of the hardest hit areas. As part of this project, Héra supported the “Resilient School”, a program geared to providing parents and teachers with tools to help prevent the psychological trauma suffered by young children becoming chronic.
Each year we try not to miss doing our bit to make Christmas a happy time by supporting Cesvi’s programs in Italy and the rest of the world to safeguard and help severely disadvantaged children or the victims of ill treatment, by providing food, medical care, education, vocational training, psychological support and any other assistance that will give them a better future.

Christmas 2019 saw all the Héra team enjoying a splendid day on Monte Bianco.

Reaching for (and touching) the sky!
