The awareness that educating a nomadic child means raising the quality of life of her future children and her family, and therefore of the whole of the nomadic community in Tibet, as well as safeguarding a civilisation that threatens to disappear daily, was the defining factor in ENAV’s decision.

With regard to social initiatives aimed at improving community wellbeing, ENAV sponsored two main projects called: “Send them to school” and “Welcome to Onlus”.

“Send them to school” is a project which ENAV joined at the initiative of the Equal Opportunities Committee, aimed at promoting women’s education through the long-distance support of forty Tibetan nomadic girls. With this project ENAV wanted to support the education of the girls who in the Tibetan community would be destined to work at home and in the fields without being able to access to schooling.

The awareness that educating a nomadic child means raising the quality of life of her future children and her family, and therefore of the whole of the nomadic community in Tibet, as well as safeguarding a civilisation that threatens to disappear daily, was the defining factor in ENAV’s decision. The support provided allows these girls to temporarily leave their families to stay far from home in facilities where they can live and study, thus enabling them to obtain primary education and covers room and board, basic health care and the necessary teaching materials. The project ended in 2018 when almost all the girls succeeded in obtaining their diplomas.

The project “Welcome to Onlus” invites some non-profit organisations into ENAV’s own offices to give them the opportunity to raise funds and spread awareness among Group employees, who can demonstrate their solidarity with and provide support for the projects of each organisation.
