PUPI FONDATION

The Fondazione PUPI was created in 2001 with the aim of working in the field of full protection of children and teenagers rights. The Fondazione was established by the will of Javier Zanetti and his wife Paula, who decided to create an environment in which to develop this project.
Since then, the aim has been to create a model of intervention that would promote the growth of the most vulnerable social sectors.
The headquarters are located in Remedios de Escalada, province of Buenos Aires and include the early childhood center and the complementary education center.
The choice of this place is not accidental, since, for the love that binds them to the neighborhood where they met, Javier and Paula wanted the families of this area to benefit from the advantages of this project.
After almost 13 years, the Fondazione PUPI has succeeded in developing a model of intervention, from early childhood through adolescence, acting in the field of promotion, support, organization and collective mobilization.
Today the priority of the Fondazione PUPI is to continue promoting the policy of equal opportunities. The Fondazione believes that guaranteeing all rights to the children and their families is possible and will continue on this path.
At Fondazione PUPI, we can count on a group of professionals including teachers, doctors, sociologists, psychologists, social workers and political scientists working together to ensure the success of every project that is being carried out.

THE MAMA AMOR PROJECT

The Mama Amor Project is designed for kids from 0 to 3 years old, living in families with socio-educational vulnerabilities. The project started in 2007 and is still ongoing. The Fondazione PUPI has set the objective to strengthen the ability of the families to take care of their children, to reinforce their educational function starting from the pregnant mum and to help the “care giving” women to acquire the skills required in the heart of the community.

Strategies

– The interdisciplinary equipe (pediatrician, psychologist, educational psychologist ) will make evolution controls.

Specialists’ laboratories

  • Nutritionist: breastfeeding and adequate nutrition for the mother and the newborn.
  • Pediatrician: prevention of the common disease in early childhood.
  • Psychologists and kindergarten teachers: playgroup for the mothers and the newborns.
  • Social psychology: talking groups of mothers.
  • Sociologist: ome visits and meetings to determine the needs and the areas of greatest weakness of the families.

This project aims to train the women and to strengthen their ability to stimulate and identify the deficit of kids’ maturation, underlining the natural caring instinct of women, without losing the rules of their culture of origin, enhancing the woman and her maternal role.

Beneficiari:

Direct Beneficiaries:

  • – 160 kids from 0 to 3 years old with socio-educational vulnerabilities.
  • – 160 fathers and/or mothers.
  • – 80 pregnant women, with their companions.
  • – 6 care givers.

Indirect Beneficiaries

  • – 200 families and their communities.

RESULTS: the kids are stimulated and grow with a strong bond with their mothers.

The final goal is to give a tangible contribution and to break the iron cage of poverty, preventing maturation deficits, that can affect kids living in families with socio-educational vulnerabilities.

BUILDING A SHARED “US” PROJECT

DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW STRATEGY FOR THE FONDAZIONE P.U.P.I. ONLUS

With “Building A Shared ‘US’”, Fondazione PUPI works in an attempt to create a model of intervention, which, by demonstrating its success in the ongoing interventions, can be replicated by other organizations and the State, so as to reach the necessary and simultaneous dimension for a true transformation of reality in the most vulnerable sectors of society.
By building a real Chain of Charity Value, we place ourselves as facilitators towards multiple organizations working in the field of education and sport through social projects aimed at the underpriviledged. Over the period 2015/2016, the Fondazione PUPI Onlus will support a number of selected organizations. The support includes measures of various kinds: technical advice, education expertise transfer and direct funding of projects. For the Fondazione, this new phase represents a growth in the social-educational area and a development in the management of programs for children and teenagers, and – more generally – social sectors experiencing exclusion.

BUILDING A SHARED “US” PROJECT

PROJECTS IN THE MUNICIPALITY OF MILAN

Part of the funds raised – and in particular all the proceeds of the sale of the Zanetti and Friends Match for Expo Milano 2015 tickets – will be used to support projects that will be developed in the City of Milan. In this regard, an Evaluation Group – identified by the board of directors of the Fondazione PUPI – will aim at identifying organizations acting in the field of childhood, education, qualification, prevention and/or sports/education, which can be helped with concrete institutional support. They all should be united by the attention they pay to spreading healthy and virtuous principles such as the promotion of diversity through the development of minorities, and the cooperation for the growth of a society whose primary goal is building a shared “US”.

For the overall assessment of the project proposed, the requesting organization will be asked to provide all necessary data together with the drafting of the project, following the model form for submission of projects that the Fondazione PUPI will provide, and that will be available shortly on the website of the event www.zanettiandfriends.com.
