A project of the municipalities of Chiasso and Mendrisio, “Right to grow, let’s build our future” is a programme for the promotion of children’s rights that aims to support parenting skills. Conceived for families with children aged 6-10 years, this project is aimed at families showing fragility, with the aim of preventing social disadvantage. The project has completed the Experimental Phase and is now entering the Pilot Phase, for a duration of 3 years (2022-2025). To date, Medacta for Life Foundation has contributed over Chf 100,000 to the municipalities involved and will continue to support the project with a fund of Chf 150,000 for the next 3 years.
In addition to Medacta for Life Foundation, Educativa territoriale is financed by the Canton and the two municipalities involved, with whom the Foundation is working to ingage new financial sponsors, which are necessary for the project to be able to develop in its entirety. From an economic point of view, in fact, for the pilot phase, coverage of about 55% of the total cost has so far been achieved, a budget that is almost entirely dedicated to the remuneration of operational staff. Fundamental will be the intervention of other organizations or private benefactors who believe in the goodness and profound usefulness of this action.
