Fondazione Sinderesi is a non-profit organization that works exclusively with youth. Ai.Bi. Associazione Amici dei Bambini is a volunteer association authorized to manage international adoptions that has fought for childrens’ rights to a family for over 30 years.
The volunteer project begins with an initial training period on the community’s projects and organization, with a special focus on managing immigrants and asylum seekers. Volunteers will divide their time between two locations: Family House, that hosts mothers and small children, and La Tenda di Abramo that hosts up to twenty asylum seekers.
At Family House volunteers will teach Italian and develop recreational activities for children while providing day-to-day care of the associations facilities. At La Tenda di Abramo, volunteers will support staff in managing asylum requests, providing linguistic instruction, managing facilities and planning activities for adults and children.
