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.
