ATKYE Italy Onlus


Since the Association's activity moved to the coastal region of Kenya around Watamu, traditionally frequented by Italian tourism, contacts with friends from the nearby peninsula have become increasingly frequent.

In fact, thanks to a group of people living in the Verona area, the foundations have been laid for a more coordinated and targeted aid to young people from families in need.

A fortuitous coincidence meant that, while planning to buy land on which to build our school, we met some representatives of the Trentino Alto Adige region and the province of Bolzano, who shared and supported the idea with a substantial contribution, allowing us to build the first block of classrooms and other buildings (dormitory, canteen, warehouse, etc..) of the initial school structure.

Later, thanks to the personal contacts made by the various committee members, the initial cell of the friends of Verona were joined by others in the cities of Palermo, Naples, Milan and Rome. In the latter city, having had the good fortune to be able to rely on the initiative and knowledge of our friend Fabrizio Grazioli, we finally managed in February 2012 to create and enroll in the Registry of Onlus at the Revenue Agency of the Lazio Region a non-profit organization entirely formed by volunteers and dedicated to the exclusive support of the Atkye Project in Kenya.

With this in mind, donations made in favour of Atkye Italia Onlus are deductible from taxes and the Onlus can be mentioned as the recipient of the 5 x 1000 attributed to voluntary associations.

Thanks to the constant support of about forty faithful friends, the Onlus pours a considerable amount of money into the school structure every year, which allows it to cope with the ever-increasing expenses arising from the management of the school structure with its over 300 students and 30 professionally active people.

In Italy

I contatti con il  Comitato di ATKYE Italia Onlus e con gli amici che vi si sono aggiunti si susseguono durante l’anno in Ticino, in Italia e, in occasioni particolari, alla scuola in Kenya. Oltre all’organizzazione di qualche evento, si raccolgono fondi tramite la devoluzione del 5 per mille a favore della nostra Associazione al momento della dichiarazione fiscale. Abbiamo avuto qualche donazione importante. Tutto questo contribuisce significativamente a far quadrare i bilanci di fine anno.
