Body, mind, heart need to be fed and at the same time they feed our being and our actions in the world. Human potential concept is tied to the three aspects (body, mind, heart) that recognizes the importance of the development of those aspects in equal measure to achieve a personal and community balance. Starting from the work on the field, particularly in action projects conducted in Haiti, access to food and supplies, up to the scientific and technological research as a tool and inspiration to improve the daily lives of people and make them independent: in all of this the essence of the theme.
Andrea Bocelli Foundation
The Andrea Bocelli Foundation was created to help people in difficulty due to illness, poverty and social exclusion by promoting and supporting projects in Italy and in developing countries, especially Haiti, which favour the overcoming of barriers and the full expression of their potential.
The Foundation works with two programs:
The program "BREAK THE BARRIERS" aims to support and promote projects that help the weaker sections of the population in Italy and in the developing countries where poverty, disease, malnutrition and complex social situations invalidate or reduce life expectancy.
The program "CHALLENGES" aims to bring together the best minds to find innovative solutions to help people to cope with and overcome the limits imposed by their disability / discomfort. This program acts by supporting projects in the field of scientific / technological and social innovation.
