The Human Safety Net’s For Families program works together with parents to help children from disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds. It focuses on the first six years of childhood, when learning abilities are fundamental and can prove crucial for a child’s future social evolution.
Activity of the For Families program in France began with a call for projects launched in spring 2018 with the association GPMA (Groupement Prévoyance Maladie Accident), a Generali partner. The goal was to identify associations that offer parents equal-opportunity initiatives and support, and build long-term partnerships with them.
70 associations responded. Ultimately five were chosen based on their commitment to family themes, the quality of their support programs, the strength of their local roots and their ability to collaborate with companies and associations both in France and abroad. In December 2019, a sixth association joined this initiative.
