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:
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)
Un Raggio di Luce Onlus cooperates with various partners who work for the defense of human rights and for the support of global human development . Our partners share the reasons that inspired us, our vision, our values and the projects we guarantee. These people, associations, societies, and entities consider the ethical dimension of their activities a necessary condition for the global development of man.

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.
