Il Cartiere is an artisanal workshop of collaborative creativity, which has been successfully run since the winter of 2013 by the Cantiere della Provvidenza.The main objective is the development of an innovative micro-business which directly involves young people with disabilities, of school leaving age, in the production of objects and manufactured items made with recycled paper.
By means of a comprehensive course on socio-professional inclusion and integration Il Cartiere aims to ensure long term employment to its beneficiaries, offering them the opportunity to express and develop their individual skills and potential.
Il Cartiere represents a first step towards a new model for social welfare with which to further a business culture with a social impact, even while it is equally characterized by a strong market orientation in order to to guarantee economic sustainability.
The main aim is to use our own profits in order to allow our beneficiaries to reach maximum levels of self sufficiency. In fact in relation to the individual projects, developed in collaboration with regional families and services, specific activities are scheduled for monitoring, planning, and guidance in three areas: production quality, equal opportunity employment and self sufficiency.
These activities come under the umbrella of the New Horizons in Employment for People with Disabilities project run by the Belluno ULSS (Local Health and Services body). Il Cartiere enjoys the support of the Belluno ANFFAS (Association of Families of People with Learning and Emotional Disabilities).
In order to further enhance creativity and the possibilities offered by paper and its recycling an educational workshop has been designed for kindergarten and elementary schools, for summer camps or any organized group interested in learning about our organization.
