which cares for the job placement of people with intellectual disabilities in the hospitality sector.
Porta del Cielo Onlus, represented by testimonials Ilaria Spada and Andrea Roncato, was born in Rome in 2008 as a result of the experience of Faith related to the Medjugorje apparitions and the subsequent conversions of millions of people that led the founders to a commitment to the field of assistance to families, often destitute, of children and young people in need of specialized medical care in Italy, collaborating with facilities such as the Bambino Gesù Children’s Hospital in Rome, the Gaslini Children’s Hospital in Genoa and the Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute in Bologna.
Valueable, represented by Paola Vulterini, is a European project co-financed by the European Commission and promoted by the Associazione Italiana Persone Down Onlus that involves a multiplicity of commercial and noncommercial actors located in six different countries (Italy, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Hungary and Turkey).
The network promotes the labor market inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities through the dissemination of targeted placements (internships and/or employment) in the hospitality sector.
