GenerazioneAltruista is MilanoAltruista section for the youngsters. Many organizations don’t accept young volunteers, especially minors, for bureaucratic reasons and insurance problems. We believe that the young generation is the beating heart of our future, so it is necessary to give them the chance to help out and volunteer.

In this extremely difficult period for everyone, communities for the youngest have to work even harder to get what they need to entertain their guests during the day or handle didactic activities, which now take place only online. As a result, we have decided to open a section dedicated to the donations of electronic devices, such as internet sticks (with a monthly subscriptions or topped up) and tablets, for the poorest children in Milan, who are struggling to participate to the online lectures.
MilanoAltruista has decided to start a partnership with Ascolto Spazio Emozioni to support the people who are suffering the most in this emergency. We know that interpersonal relationships are fundamental in everyday life for the well-being and the personal growth of everyone. In this particular moment the mandatory self-isolation is challenging our habits and even doing the simplest things can seem hard to do. It’s exactly in this kind of situations that speaking with someone, as a point of contact between ourselves and the others, even with a phone call, can make a real difference.
