The first annual prize of the Chiara Badano Foundation is underway

Do you like helping others? Do you have an idea about a solidarity project and can’t wait to get going? Well, there’s an initiative in which you might be interested.

On 29th October, 2022, during the anniversary of the birth of Blessed Chiara Luce Badano, the Foundation that keeps her memory alive established the Solidarity Prize. It is an annual event to promote solidarity projects around the world.

Since childhood, Chiara Luce demonstrated her passion for the most needy, the weakest, the marginalized of society, the elderly and in particular children. This is why the Chiara Badano Foundation decided to establish this award.

The objective is to support and encourage projects to promote positive actions aimed at the weakest sections of the population (the elderly, people with disabilities, immigrants…) and actions aimed at combating exploitation and violence against women and children, new poverty and for the protection of the planet.

Each year the prize will identify an innovative project of social importance, with the aim of disseminating its contents to make it available to everyone. The idea is to support the project with a financial contribution of 2,000 euro, to promote it through effective communication on social media and open it up to new forms of support.

Organizations and groups, even informal ones, can apply for the prize. They should be composed mostly of young people under 30 years of age, who have a project that promotes and furthers the culture and practice of solidarity. The deadline for submission of projects (20th January 2023) has been extended to 20th February.

The Chiara Badano Foundation also promotes the Art Prize, an initiative to give young people the opportunity to express through artistic talents, how much Chiara Luce’s lifestyle has fascinated and inspired them. The call for tenders for the sixth edition will be launched in March 2023.
