Who we are

Fondazione De la Salle Solidarietà Internazionale is the principal development and fundraising department of the De La Salle Christian Brothers and provides capacity building, technical assistance, and financial support to Lasallian educational initiatives. It is a nonprofit organization which coordinates the network of Lasallian development organizations around the world. Our mission is to support Lasallians engaged in the promotion of the rights of children and youth at risk of socio-educational exclusion, in 5 continents, through schools, learning centers, orphanages, youth facilities, social-health services and other programs which respond to specific needs, according to the local environment. De La Salle Schools and initiatives are present in 79 countries, involving nearly 1 million students. 

Children and youth at risk

We promote a child-centered pedagogical approach that includes three dimensions of education: personal, social and environmental dimensions. Through this approach we aim to protect rights and ensure the well-being of children and young people participating in our programs.

Gender Equality

We work every day to ensure that all our beneficiaries can exercise their rights and abilities to live in conditions that allow their full personal development. For this reason, we support actions that contribute to reducing levels of isolation, discrimination and vulnerability of women and girls.

Sustainability

We are committed to create sustainable educational communities that become socially, economically and ecologically healthy and resilient in order to transform their societies.
