Why CELIM? Because your donation counts

From 1954 to date, CELIM has been gaining specific experience, which today can be used to manage activities with professionalism and transparency (our funds are guaranteed by audited financial statements and a company report).
The second NGO ever created in Italy, CELIM is now recognised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and by the European Union. Choosing to support CELIM means embracing a family dimension operating at international level: this is how we manage to control management costs, we enable donators to actually see the outcome of their contribution and we avoid wasting resources.
Choosing to support CELIM does not mean giving to charity but, rather, taking part in bringing real change to local communities and in their practical training.
