TECNOCASA GROUP AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Tecnocasa Group have always undertaken a sustainable growth and paid attention to the needs of the stakeholder, integrating the implications of an ethical nature within a corporate strategical vision (according to the logic of corporate social responsibility).

The continued willingness to guide all the members of the Group to respect the rules of a correct behavior, with regard to the collaboration and satisfaction of the client, is the result of an awareness of a significant social impact developed by the Companies and by the franchising Network of the Group in the territory in which they work.

SOLIDARITY

Tecnocasa Group has created its humanitarian project thanks to the setting up of Fondazione MilleSoli Onlus which, on 26th May 2005, was formally recorded in the NGO register and on 21st November 2005 was legally acknowledged.
Fondazione MilleSoli operates in India, a land where many people live in extreme poverty. In particular, the Fondazione mission is engaged in protecting and supporting children coming from terrible hardship, taking care of their daily needs, offering them shelter and basic schooling.

The Fondazione activities have the following objectives:
  • Re-establish human dignity by restoring self respect to the children in care;
  • Where possible, resettle the children with their families;
  • Provide concrete help towards their growth, play, health assistance and schooling.

Morever, the Fondazione has given financial support for the construction and renovation of various buildings for houses , schools and dispensaries for these children.

These activities, initially concentrated in the area of Mumbai (in the State of Marahastra), have gradually expanded with the help of the Salesian Nuns.
Tecnocasa Group have already contributed towards the realization of 13 buildings (construction/renovation) in 9 different states of India, where more than 1.200 children are housed.

The undertaking of the Fondazione is not confined to the various projects (construction of the buildings, payment of medical and teaching personnel, food and lodging for the children), but aims to create conditions whereby in time these projects may become self supported and financed through work on the land and keeping animals.

With this objective in mind, in the vicinity of the housing for the children, stables and wells have been built which will contribute also towards the economical development of these buildings and in time make them self supporting.

Alessadro Caglieris
President of the Fondazione
relates his experience and how the Fondazione was started

"

It all started in 2000, after several experiences of voluntary work in Africa.

In August, through Don Colussi, I became acquainted with sister Aruna and sister Johanna who, in the month of July, had taken the first 5 children from the street to give them shelter in the basement of the school where I was teaching. The basement, of about 30 sq.mtrs, became the first house for Johanna and 30 children.

At the end of August, I came back to Italy with the intention of continuing my undertaking in India. I took with me the photos and the stories of those children and in this way received the first contributions from all the colleagues of Tecnocasa. From 2000 to 2004, I am working on a small projects (in monetary terms) with sister Aruna, but large projects from a moral point of view, such as keeping the children of the streets, away from child labour and prostitution.

In August 2004, we studied the possibility of creating something permanent, thanks to the concrete support of colleagues from the Tecnocasa Group: in 2005, Fondazione MilleSoli was foundered.

The name “MilleSoli” was chosen because an Indian proverb says “there are always a thousand suns beyond the clouds”. Our interpretation was to donate a future of a thousand suns to every child in our care.

The Fondazione is non party, non political and non religious, with unlimited duration and is not profit making.
