A PARTNERSHIP FOR A BETTER FUTURE

After 20 years of collaboration, Lavazza is Save the Children's longest-standing partner company.

For 20 years the Lavazza Foundation has been working with Save the Children, the humanitarian aid organization, to improve the lives of young boys and girls through better education, health care, and economic opportunities. 

This nonprofit organization, with a staff of 25,000 dedicated workers across 122 countries, has been fighting for over 100 years to save children at risk and guarantee them a future. 

Since 2001, Lavazza and Save the Children have collaborated on various initiatives in nine different countries: Italy, Yemen, Indonesia, Nepal, India, Ivory Coast, China, Vietnam, and Myanmar. These initiatives primarily focus on mitigating emergencies, promoting the health of mothers and their children, supporting young people, and welcoming underage migrants.  

In the early years, this partnership initially focused on providing support to girls, children, young people, and families who have experienced conflict, humanitarian emergencies, or hardship, such as the earthquakes in Central Italy and Nepal and the tsunami in Indonesia. Then it began supporting the development of health and nutrition programs in developing countries, such as India, Ethiopia, and Myanmar.  

Over time, this partnership has been strengthened through its support of programs to protect children's rights and their endorsement of the Children's Rights and Business Principles, the first comprehensive set of principles to guide companies on the full range of actions they can take in the workplace, in the marketplace, and in the community to respect and support children's rights.

A LIFELONG PARTNERSHIP: OUR CURRENT PROJECTS

Currently, an important part of this long-standing partnership is its contribution to international programs, such as New Horizons, aimed at providing young people with vocational training that will help them find skilled employment in the future.  

A Cup of Learning, an international program implemented by Lavazza, is also part of this initiative through the direct participation of our experts, who have made their know-how and energy available by providing 120 young people with the theoretical and practical elements they need to become professional baristas, first-hand in the field. These 120 people have now earned a professional certification. 

At Lavazza, we strongly believe that every child has the right to grow up healthy and in safe conditions, and our long-standing partnership with Save the Children attests to this. More importantly, this partnership has been key to the transformation of the lives of thousands of children who, thanks to the possibility of having an education, now have a different outlook on life.
