Mondo Donna Onlus

presentation

MondoDonna is a nonprofit reality characterized by the synergetic effort between MondoDonna Association and MondoDonna Cooperative.

The Association, was born in 1995 in Bologna and set the first mother-and-child residential center in the city. Historic mission of the Association is giving support to mothers with weak parental skills in need of a safe place where rising their children. In 2013 MondoDonna becomes Antiviolence Center, widening its services all around the metropolitan territory and in the district of Riccione through local help desks referring to CHIAMA chiAMA permanent project.

MondoDonna Cooperative was born in 2016 with the aim of increasing integration opportunities of people hosted in the Association’s reception centers, by standing next to them and supporting them and by offering customized job placement support and opportunities.

The Association expertise and the Cooperative tools enable MondoDonna’s reality to offer integrated interventions of legal and psychologic support, education and integration services and training opportunities through a unique multidisciplinary approach.

Today, MondoDonna is an excellency in providing services for:

  • supporting women and fighting against gender-based violence
  • hosting migrant women and families
  • supporting people with vulnerabilities

MondoDonna’s teams are made by professionals: educators, anthropologists, psychologists, counsellors, lawyers, all coordinated by a highly skilled internal staff. Our goal is to overcome the subsidy mentality, by supporting people in their path towards autonomy, giving value to personal skills.
