The sponsorship support project in Kenya was born after a personal trip by Valter Baldaccini. Anchored to Christian values and firmly convinced of the importance of the dignity of the person, he promoted an initiative aimed at giving concrete help to the poorest people in Nairobi.
After visiting the slums and getting in touch with some of the local families who lived in absolute misery, he thought of giving children the opportunity to attend a basic school, seeing in education the only breakthrough for a better future.
There are about 50 children who can now take advantage of this training course. Among the supporters, besides the employees and friends of Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A., are also various stakeholders of the Foligno-based company.
Since 2016, the project, which was followed up with La Gòmena Onlus, has been under the direct management of the Valter Baldaccini Foundation.
