Water is life The school is future Health is a human right

In Ethiopia, access to clean drinking water is extremely problematic. Diseases linked to intestinal infections are strongly related to this and tend to affect the most vulnerable such as children, old men and women. With the development of a well in Tigray, 500/700 people have been given the opportunity to resolve a major problem.

Today we are convinced that our attention should be focused on children and young people who represent the future of humanity. Therefore, we would like to gather the economic resources necessary to design and build schools in the developing world, where children are often treated as an underpaid workforce and are therefore exploited.

Sanitary conditions in Ethiopia are very poor because of the extreme poverty of the country which, as a direct consequence, sees severe problems with hygiene. We intend to intervene, therefore, not only to make healthcare available to treat these diseases, but also to ensure adequate training about minimum standards of hygiene.

Solar workshop in Kafna

Most rural schools in the region of Tigray, in Ethiopia, don’t have access to electric power, water, lavatories, furniture and school supplies such as pens, exercise books and texts, the fundamental and necessary tools in the educational process. It’s not uncommon to see teachers giving lessons open-air or among stone walls with children sitting on the floor.

Think about a Bequest

A charitable bequest can change the life of many children and give them the opportunity of a better life.

Filippo Leandro Benvenuti, before passing away, decided to donate his fortune to Butterfly charity foundation, to become an instrument for giving water and education to people in need; our responsibility has been the one to honour his generosity and memory trying to make the best possible use of the funds he did not need anymore!

Your help is a great value!

“There are many opportunities to help others, even at home! We believe that every human being should follow their heart and be aware of being part of the world. It is said that ‘when butterflies flap their wings in Asia, they stir up a breeze in America’. Love has no boundaries. We have decided to take care of the future of children who have no opportunity to go to school, and people who find it difficult to survive due to a lack of water in poorer countries. If you want to follow the flight of this butterfly, know that is supported by love and great determination.”
