FAMILY AND WORK

The Family and Work project is aimed at men and women, to whom the economic crisis has taken away the job and who struggle to find a relocation in the work context. The program wants to give the possibility of finding a job that is synonymous with social redemption and newfound dignity .

Over the past two years, the Foundation project has helped 20 families in the area by providing 20 work grants, that is, a two-month work experience offered to one of the members of the family unit. Thanks to work grants, families in difficulty have found hope.

The birth of the project in collaboration with the Caritas of Foligno

The Family and Work project was born in 2017 and was developed together with the Diocesan Caritas of Foligno. Caritas represents a solid reality for the Foligno area, a point of reference for a deeper knowledge of the local context and a reliable point of listening to and monitoring of the needs of families. On 5 September 2017, on the International Day of Charity and the anniversary of the death of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, the Project was officially presented. Together with Caritas and the Listening Center we identified the first ten people who could most likely take advantage of the work grants and make this a work experience.

An evolving inclusion project

From its inception, the Family and Work project has evolved over time and it has been possible to offer new work grants and new supporters have joined in:

Two stories

The work grants have been activated in the agri-food and logistics services at the facilities of the Caritas Diocesana and there are plans to restore public spaces in the city of Foligno.

Antonio tells us his incredible story: “Today, I can count on this work grant, it has given me so much. I learned about the value of money and I no longer dwell on the past. My life has changed. Now I taste things that I didn't care about before".

Leonardo, was unemployed with two teenage children. His work grant was activated for the first time with the private company, UMBRAGROUP. After the first two months of the work grant, UMBRAGROUP offered Leonardo a fixed-term contract. A beautiful story, which we hope can be an example to other private companies in the area.
