Our Dream

Our dream is that children’s rights as stated in the “UN Convention on the Rights of the Child” (https://www2.ohchr.org/english/law/crc.htm) be fully implemented, enforced, and respected in every country of the world.

We dream that every child be entitled to an education and to health care assistance;
that no child be ever subjected to exploitation, poverty, hunger, deprivation, or suffering from poverty or cruelty;
that every child’s right to innocence be respected;
that every child be entitled to protection and to development of his or her highest potential.

Dear Friends,
despite the ongoing vaccination campaigns in many countries, with more cases once again on the rise in various parts of the world, it seems clear that the end of the pandemic is not yet near. For the schools supported by the Foundation, this means continuing to adapt to the restrictions imposed by COVID-19 emergency measures, while causing the least possible disruption in the course curriculum for our beneficiary students.

Annual Activities Report

Dear Friends,
In 2020 we continued to support our traditional programs, however putting more emphasis on the projects in Italy and Africa.  We believe that the COVID pandemic will be eliminated by the end of 2021 in developed countries thanks to massive vaccinations, although it will continue throughout 2022 in the poorest countries, particularly in Africa.

Current Projects

The Pistorio Foundation aims to improve the living conditions of underprivileged children in developing countries by supporting their long-term education up to Professional School and by building and improving school infrastructure. We also ensure that every child we support has access to adequate nutrition and primary health care.
