You are the one at the heart of it

Seneca said: “Those who help others help themselves.” Come and discover with us how true this is.

For Mission Bambini, volunteering is not just about selflessness: the time you decide to devote to children will be time that benefits them, you and the entire community.

There are many different volunteering opportunities at Mission Bambini, but they all allow you to truly help, every day, the most fragile children living abroad or in Italy. Whichever ways you choose, it is important for you to know that:

children

are always been the focus of our help: our task is to support them
and accompany them towards their future, so that they can make their dreams, their wishes come true.

your time

is precious and we are grateful that you choose to donate it: every minute spent helping a child is a minute earned, in the challenge of giving back to that child the dignity to which he or she is entitled.

the 5 values

that guide our Foundation and the work of our volunteers are: Freedom, Justice, Truth, Respect for others, Solidarity. Learn more about who we are and our values

your skills

and enthusiasm are important to us and we want to make the most of them.

together

we can accomplish something important.
