These initiatives will be carried out respectively in the three educational spaces of Agrigento, Marsala, and Mazara del Vallo, as part of the “MICROPOLIS: A new community welfare model” project, selected by Con i Bambini as part of the Fund for combating juvenile educational poverty. The three projects were conceived and will be managed by Micropolis’ partners: Consorzio Solidalia, the Istituto Comprensivo Mario Nuccio, and the Eduverso Association in Marsala; Associazione Casa della Comunità Speranza in Mazara del Vallo; and Familia Società Cooperativa Sociale in Agrigento.
To support these three projects, the Community Foundation of Agrigento and Trapani has launched a community crowdfunding program. The initiatives have been published on Intesa Sanpaolo’s crowdfunding platform ‘For Funding,’ with which the Community Foundation collaborates. Once the amount raised through community crowdfunding reaches 50% of the total amount needed to realize the projects, the Community Foundation will contribute the remaining 50%.
Through this program, the Foundation aims to promote a culture of giving within the community and provide direct support through co-financing initiatives for children in fragile contexts, with the aim of equalizing opportunities and capabilities for children and families facing severe deprivation).
