On 10 October, the award ceremony of the ‘Building the Future’ Foundation, which Safety21 is a partner and supporter of, was held at the Marriot Hotel in Milan.
The ‘Building the Future’ Award was launched in 2003, and supports small and medium-sized third sector organisations operating in the social and sports sectors in Lombardy, with separate tenders for each Lombardy province.
Helping those who help: in recent years, 500 associations have been awarded prizes, with more than €1 million distributed to set up community projects in the region. Even during the Covid emergency this year, the Foundation presented awards to 27 organisations that have been working with the most vulnerable, distributing €60,000 to associations operating within the Metropolitan City of Milan.
These associations have distinguished themselves through their ongoing commitment to the disabled and the very young, and financial support for their educational work will greatly benefit the whole community, especially during these times of pandemic.
