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,
as the year unfolds with increasingly worrying news on climate change and its devastating consequences, Coronavirus outbreak, forced migrations due to natural disasters and armed conflicts, to name a few, it is ever more apparent that all men and women must work together to face our pressing challenges and build a more just, equitable, peaceful, and sustainable world, fit for children as well as for ourselves.

Annual Activities Report

In 2018, 1128 extremely poor children in Burkina Faso, Morocco, Thailand and Cambodia, have successfully continued their schooling supported by the Pistorio Foundation. At the close of our thirteenth year of existence, I’m proud of the achievements of the thousands of children we have had on scholarship that have taken the opportunities offered them to study to improve their chances of a brighter future.

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.
