ViaEtica is a non-profit organization based in Brescia, born in 2014 thanks to the idea of dr. Marco Capretti, president of the association, and of professor Fabrizio Arici, vice-president of the same.
ViaEtica operates in developing countries such as Kenya, Togo and Madagascar without ever forgetting its town of origin, Brescia.
The ViaEtica guidelines are:
- the value of a job, and having the opportunity to learn and get a job, always in relation to the possibilities offered by the place where the worker lives; as an association we would like to support the agricultural, construction, health or craft sectors. The remuneration of the work has to be in relation to the value that it creates and therefore must be recognized, always starting by the context in which the worker lives and from which he comes. The profits of our local projects are redistributed in services such as home, education and health, predilecting the needs of children.
- the value of knowledge, and the possibility of being able to increase every cultural level by promoting the protection of culture and art, raising awareness on issues such as health, childhood and the environment, trying to protect them as much as possible.
- from a social point of view we are committed to supporting the weaker parts of the society: individuals with psychological disorders or addictions; elderly in conditions of psychological or psychiatric economic distress; abandoned minors, orphans or in situations of maladjustment or deviance.
Briefly ViaEtica wants to create more opportunities through the work to guarantee and develop culture, health, independence and ethical life seen as life that creates value.
We believe in values â€‹â€‹such as peace, life, family, dialogue, culture, justice, honesty and respect for women.
