Superaccio ('overcoming' in English) is a non-profit initiative that was born in Barcelona in early 2013 and is made up of professionals from a variety of fields, who are selflessly involved in enabling this project to be carried out. His mission is the improvement and personal development of young people at risk of social exclusion for their subsequent social and labour insertion. Specifically, the work and training of the triathlon serves as a vehicle for collaborating with young people who, for various reasons, have been abused by the 'system' or have not had the opportunity to learn or develop the tools needed to adapt to it. And it's much more than just the Triathlon! Through a broad and constant programme of physical, artistic and expressive activities, we can help to break stereotypes and for these young people to participate in, grow and adapt to different conditions and cultures. Superaccio has the sponsorship and collaboration of both public institutions and private entities. Thanks to their support it is possible to make this project become reality. Currently, Superaccio is extending its scope at a national and international level, with active programs in Tenerife and Tunisia. Look at the success achieved in spreading the Superaccio values to people who are the target of our activity. This is what motivates us to push the project forward every day!

AIFO was founded in 1961, inspired by the thought of the French journalist Raoul Follereau. AIFO has a capillary network of official groups of volunteers all over the Italian country. AIFO's vision and mission stem from the precepts of Raul Follereau: The vision is to develop actions that contribute spreading and building a "civilization of love". The mission is to promote cooperation policies aimed at the self-development of peoples, while implementing specific social and health intervention programs. Our work is endorsed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Commission, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency and UN Agencies, among others. We are an official partner of the WHO, the International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations (ILEP), the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) and the Italian Network Disability and Development (RIDS). AIFO promotes initiatives through the establishment of Country-Programs, each with its strategy and action plans. In Liberia, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau, Mongolia and Brazil we have a National Coordination Office. In Brazil, Mongolia and India, we facilitated the establishment of local "sister organizations" closely linked to AIFO: BRASA (Brasil Saude e Acao) in Brazil, Teghs Niigem in Mongolia and Amici Trust in India. AIFO activities can be divided into two main groups: 1) International Health Co-operation: - Primary health care, with a special focus to leprosy and other Neglected Tropical Diseases - Community-based Inclusive Development (CBID) programmes open to all the different groups of persons with disabilities, including persons with disabilities due to leprosy and persons with mental illness. 2) Global Citizenship Education in Italy, including training courses, refresher courses, meetings, seminars, conferences and workshops. The awareness actions in Italy are carried out by AIFO groups of volunteers, who are very effective for public mobilisation and advocacy actions. In 2021 we have active projects in Brazil, Tunisia, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Mozambique, India, China and Mongolia.
