The Human Safety Net and Fondazione Italiana Accenture team up to promote the digitalisation of the non-profit sector in Italy

The partnership aims to enhance the Mission Bambini portal “Bambini Patapum!” to reach even more vulnerable families and will be implemented as a digital solution that will be replicable by other non-profit organisations

The Human Safety Net and Fondazione Italiana Accenture have joined forces, as part of a broader project shared by other leading Italian foundations, to accelerate the digitalisation process of the non-profit sector in Italy - fostering their growth and structural evolution - in this emergency period caused by the spread of COVID-19.

The lockdown has highlighted the need for non-profit organisations to acquire the necessary capabilities to continue their activities remotely, and digitally, in order to reach the increasing numbers of parents and their children living in vulnerable situations.

The Human Safety Net and Fondazione Italiana Accenture have developed a strategy, in addition to initiatives implemented individually, working together on a project for the Mission Bambini Foundation. It is one of the non-profit organisations supported by The Human Safety Net with Generali Italia through “Ora di Futuro”, an educational project for children, involving teachers, families, primary schools and non-profit networks across Italy.

With this goal, Mission Bambini has benefited from financial and training support, initiated by The Human Safety Net on a global level, and thanks to this, it was able to create the “Bambini Patapum!” project.

Fondazione Italiana Accenture will provide the time and know-how to further develop and strengthen the structure of the portal, aiming to reach an ever-increasing number of parents and children. The portal, which is already connecting over 30 local organizations, will benefit from enhanced accessibility to make it available to other stakeholders.

“Bambini Patapum!” is a digital portal designed for children aged 0 to 6 (divided into 0-3 and 4-6 age groups) and their families. Its aim is to help parents manage their children’s time in the best possible way, at a time when they called on to make an even greater commitment, through a wide range of fun and creative activities, through which they can learn to write, draw, play music, cook and learn the basics of English. In addition, “Bambini Patapum!” allows parents to take advantage of specialist support from educators, psychologists and pedagogists.

Today we are pleased to announce the partnership between The Human Safety Net and Fondazione Italiana Accenture - stated the Chairman of Generali, Gabriele Galateri di Genola – our initiative was established as a network open to partnerships with other organisations that want to join the movement for supporting the most vulnerable people. The choice of Fondazione Italiana Accenture is a good example of how two important organisations can pool their know-how and resources for a common goal.”

“The collaboration with Generali -The Human Safety Net and Mission Bambini fully responds to the Vision of the Italian Accenture Foundation. - commented the President of the Italian Accenture Foundation, Diego Visconti - By sharing assets, the dissemination and the expansion of new skills aimed at accelerating the digital transition of the Third Sector, we intend to facilitate greater effectiveness of the financial resources committed. Transparency and measurement of the real social impact according to the SDGs will be two pillars of this approach.”
