Philosophy

Raoul VecchioSince 2013 I have been engaged in an activity as a humanitarian worker, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, through the design and management of charity projects of the Balouo Salo Association, the organization of awareness and fundraising events at international scale, the training and awareness of the local beneficiary communities.
At the basis of the work there is the idea of ​​creating knowledge, awareness and self-sufficiency, to do so it is not enough to "donate" something, such as a project, but an integrated system of activities and involvement is needed to create sustainability, both from a social, economic and environmental vision.
Each project is an opportunity to create self-sufficiency and improve the living conditions of communities in need, be it in the health, economic or cultural fields. The development and implementation of each project are based on principles of solidarity and cooperation, and based on methodologies and approaches that take into account all the social, cultural, environmental, religious and political dynamics of a territory, including every part of society and creating systems that are adaptable and consistent with the fundamental charters of international human rights, children's rights and gender equality, as well as the Sustainable Developments Goals.
