Man often becomes what he believes to be. If I keep telling myself that I will never do such a thing, you may end up being really incapable. On the contrary, if I have the conviction to do it, will buy certainly the ability to do it, even if not possessed at the beginning.

Mission

Un Raggio di Luce strives to improve the quality of life of underprivileged communities, with direct actions and targeted aid tailored to the real needs of individual people, families and communities. 

The values which inspire us are:

  • Responsibility, because we feel involved in what happens to others
  • Solidarity, because it is important to get involved and to help out in concrete ways by putting ourselves in other's people shoes;
  • Trust, because we truly believe in individual potential and want to bring out the innate abilities of all human beings.

Un Raggio di Luce  avoids the use of images and messages that can create a stereotype, discriminate people, situations or places and / or create sensationalism and uses images, messages, and case studies with the full understanding, participation and authorization of the subjects involved (or parents of the subjects)

Love is the light of the spirit When we need the light? Not during the day, but when the night reigns. So we need a lamp, a flame, the moon. Do your best to bring light and love in the lives of those you meet.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

2015

Questo rapporto racconta il nostro 2015, un anno di progetti, attività, sorrisi, emozioni ma anche di sofferenze, ingiustizie, violenze e morti. Un anno in cui nei principali Paesi esteri in cui operiamo si sono verificati eventi naturali o politico-militari in alcuni casi molto gravi, in altri addirittura drammatici.
