Project "Piccoli Ospiti"
Where we work > Italy

Microfinance, human rights, dignity and respect.
Since 2008, in Italy, Pangea has offered the opportunity and the means to start a new life to women and their children.
Mission: Help minors who assisted abuse and their mothers through a combined program.
People involved: 13 children and 17 mothers since 2011.
Why we are there:
Because assisted violence is a serious problem for a minor and people don't talk about it enough.
Because this experience originates traumas as bad as the direct abuse ones, that get worse if the abuse keeps lasting in time and if there's a blood relation between the aggressor and the victim.
Because working with both mothers and children is more effective.
