Save the Children

The doValue Group together with Save the Children

The doValue Group has entered into a partnership with Save the Children and exclusively supports the "Spazio Mamme" centre located in Rome's Torre Maura district.
Since 2016 the Group has been supporting the centre with the aim of making a contribution towards improving the living conditions of socially disadvantaged mothers and children living in conditions of deprivation in the municipal district of Rome.
The "Spazio Mamme" centre is situated inside the Save the Children's Punto Luce complex and is a meeting place where mothers and children can get tangible help in the form of food aid, psychological assistance and legal aid, as well as educational activities tailored to their individual assistance needs.
The aim is to accompany these mothers through a process of improvement on how to take care of their own children and how to manage their finances in order to facilitate the emancipation of their family unit from their conditions of deprivation. 

The creation of a support network and personalised pathways are fundamental activities in the process of families and parental empowerment. The Mother’s Support Centre is a place where parents can meet and exchange opinions and suggestions, can be supported free of charge in the process of improving the care of children, in the identification and strengthening of their skills, in the management of economic resources and in freeing the family from conditions of deprivation. But it is also the place where children can grow up experiencing sociality. Thanks to the workshops offered by the Association, such as family budget management, sustainable consumption styles, the Italian language or work-oriented workshops, families (adults and minors) are actively involved and accompanied on a path of social inclusion.

Thanks to the support of the doValue Group, in 2019 the Mother’s Support Centre of Torre Maura was able to accommodate 580 beneficiaries.

The collaboration between Save the Children and the doValue Group during 2020 led to the following results:
  • 119 new adults were received in the centre for the first time and 373 adults participated in the activities;
  • 133 children were received for the first time and 207 children participated in the activities;
  • 38 households covered;
  • 66 disbursements of material support.
In 2020 Save the Children supported families in distress during the Covid-19 health emergency and thanks also to the support of doValue, has carried out the following interventions:
  • 194 households covered;
  • 17 disbursements of material support;
  • 45 food packages distributed in collaboration with other companies in the territory;
  • 5 units taken over from other associations and supported via the provision of goods for children;
  • 7 tablets distributed for distance learning;
  • 28 legal consultancy sessions to 23 people;
  • 32 psychosocial counselling sessions for 6 people at the “Germogli Desk”;
  • 117 CAF counselling, social and health counselling sessions for 100 people.

As part of its CSR policy, the support for Save the Children represents for doValue a constant commitment to combat the phenomenon of educational poverty and prevent child poverty.
Also thanks to the important work that the Association does every day, the funds collected go towards improving the living conditions of of mothers and children.

In 2016 the Mother’s Support Centre of Torre Maura was able to accommodate 849 beneficiaries, including 347 minors, data confirmed also in 2017.
Instead in 2018 managed to:
  • accommodate 282 adults, mainly mothers
  • accommodate 238 children, who participated in the various activities proposed
  • help 17 families in looking for employment
Lastly in 2019 the CCentre has accomodated 905 beneficiaries, including 409 minors and 496 adults.

Together we can still do much more.
