Who We Are

We are a group of women, established professionals and mothers, who acknowledge the pleasure of giving and making happy the poorest children, helping them build their own future.

We are not numerous but work to our maximum to give you the joy and feeling of donating to those in need.

We are Skychildren Onlus: with an extremely concrete and efficient approach, we work towards helping the most unprivileged children from the poorest regions of the world, with particular attention given to India.

We represent the urgency of improving the living conditions of these disadvantaged children, through tuition, psychological assistance, health assistance and the support of the entire community.

Thanks to the slender and flexible structure of Skychildren Onlus, we guarantee that all donations arrive, within 6 months, directly and untouched to the children. All administrative and management-related dealings are not funded by donations.

We personally engage with the selection, supervision and coordination of each project funded.

We collaborate with some of the biggest international NGOs, whilst also working hand to hand with well-rooted and efficient local organisations in order to ensure the success of the financed projects.

Born in 2011 as “Vital Italy”, nowadays “Skychildren Onlus” works directly with 3750 children, reaches 42.000 people with initiatives centered around supporting local communities and manages 10 school centers which also work as shelters for the children.
