The Scalabrinian Foundation is a international non-governmental organization, synergetic expression of the social commitment of the congregation of the Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo, Scalabrinian in Italy and in the whole world. The Scalabrinian Foundation’s mission is to protect, to foster and to support human rights of migrants and refugees, with a particular attention to women and children.
We work carefully to protect universal human rights to help those who are forced to leave their homes due to poverty, disease, violence or environmental disasters.
We promote welcoming projects with houses that host migrants in transit and houses that receive migrants and refugees for longer periods of time.
Work and Education
We support migrant empowerment with educational and work orientation programmes. We are involved in the right to work, fighting by the side of workers today under exploitation and caporalato.
We work with the most important international agencies to offer help to migrants and refugees at the border. With humanitarian, health and psychological interventions.
We develop international cooperation and volunteering to ensure the dialogue between countries to protect universal human rights.
Advocacy & Human Rights
We participate in international advocacy networks to raise the voice of the most vulnerable migrants and refugees at the United Nations and other relevant fora.
