Social Integration & Equality

We must focus on the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations in order to promote their social, economic and political inclusion

The onward march of modern societies leaves too many people by the wayside. Dianova commits to vulnerable or excluded individuals, with initiatives designed to meet their needs and foster their independence

Many countries have established social safety nets and assistance schemes that play a critical role in protecting their citizens. In spite of these, inequalities are on the rise, adding to the weight of problems that the poorest people face: housing, employment and training, education, health, illiteracy, access to leisure and culture, etc. These problems create the potential that they can become even more socially vulnerable.
