Pro Bono Activities

 

  • In the summer, I teach at Trento's State Prison Summer School. We don't have a logo so far...

 

  • I am also part of the association I'll Make it!. We aim at helping ex-prisoners in their transition from prison to society. Our logo is in the making...

 

  • Till last year, I was a project leader and coordinator at Oxford Microfinance Initiative (OMI). OMI offers consultancy pro bono to microfinance institutions that make a significant positive impact. This one does have a logo:

My favourite project at OMI? An impact assessment for the Women Global Empowerment Fund (WGEF), a non-profit organization which adopts a holistic approach to microfinance: rather than only offering micro-loans to women in Northern Uganda, they have combined this type of initiative with free literacy courses, leadership courses, health education and other things. It turns out that these methods are particularly efficacious, and there is reason to adopt them in microfinance more generally. You can donate to WGEF here.
