We are an independent and non-profit Italian association. We do what we can to make the world a better place, helping the last of the last and working to bring dignity and hope to places where pain and decay seem to prevail. As our name suggests, Support and Sustain Children, we are above all interested in the present and future of girls and boys, of pre-adolescents and adolescents who have been denied the opportunity to grow in a dignified way.
We like to think we’re fixing the world one child at a time. We like to finish what we start. We like to build deep relationships with people and make them protagonists of their rebirth. Our main mission is to bring concrete support to Syrian refugees and displaced persons in Turkey. We first cut our teeth in Jordan, Iraq, Greece, the Balkans, Romania and elsewhere. We are not professional cooperators, we act for free in our free time by networking enthusiasm and skills.
We personally and scrupulously follow each of our projects. Arianna Martini, president and project manager, leaves every month to reach the beneficiaries of the aid, check the network of local collaborators and check that the resources are well invested. Our activities are fully funded from below or through private and spontaneous donations or through tenders: for this we need everyone’s help, both financially and in terms of contacts and skills. Each invested asset is meticulously tracked and accounted for.
We see the world as a home to take care of. And men and women, children and the elderly, wherever they are, whatever culture they belong to, a community to belong to.
