CavaRei raises funds for the Casa San Leonardo project

A new crowdfunding campaign was recently launched by CaveRei on Produzioni dal Basso – Italy’s first crowdfunding and social innovation platform. If the project reaches 30% of the target budget – set at $11.400 (€10,000) – it will be co-financed by Itas Mutua. The money will be used to create a socio-occupational laboratory, equipping it with the appropriate agricultural equipment.

The crowdfunding campaign of CavaRei, a social enterprise from Romagna founded in September 2018, has started following the merger of two social cooperatives. They have been offering disability services for over 30 years and take care of 135 disabled people, located in the 5 main offices, two with a residential function, and the other three dedicated to the rehabilitation and job placement. 

Currently, CavaRei is also part of “Casa San Leonardo”, a very special house in San Leonardo in Schiova, near Forlimpopoli, in the province of Forlì-Cesena, purchased in 1996 by some families who shared the same dream: to give a future to their disabled children.

The crowdfunding campaign was launched by Cavarei on Produzioni dal Basso – Italy’s first crowdfunding and social innovation platform

Over time, the house (surrounded by a plot of land of about 1.5 hectares) has become larger, being able to accommodate up to 20 people. Part of the land has been planted and will soon become a small forest, which will produce a large amount of oxygen, while the other part is dedicated to aromatic herbs. And it is precisely there that, thanks to the fundraising campaign launched by Cavarei on Produzioni dal Basso – Italy’s first crowdfunding and social innovation platform – 5 fragile people will be able to work the aromatic herbs, creating a sustainable, 0-km agricultural chain from field to sale.

If the project reaches 30% of the target budget – set at $11.400 (€10,000) – it will be co-financed by Itas Mutua.

Marcello Casamenti, ITAS agent from Forlì, expressed his satisfaction: “It is an honor for the Forlì agency to be alongside CavaRei in this beautiful initiative. Being ITAS Mutua agents, as well as professionals in the insurance sector, also means being close to our communities and seeking, together with our insured members, the best tools to develop the welfare of the territories in which we live.”

The tool of the campaign in favor of CavaRei is crowdfunding, an innovative solution that can also be used in the future, to support the agency network in similar projects.

“In this sense, the newly formed Itasolidale Association (made up of agents, employees, and the company itself) which, as a philanthropic body, will play a fundamental role in supporting initiatives linked to the territories, voluntary associations, and the third sector in general.”

A dream come true via crowdfunding

ITAS Mutua believes a lot in this project: thanks to crowdfunding, in fact, it will be possible not only to realize a real socio-occupational laboratory, equipping it with the appropriate agricultural equipment, but also – and above all – to realize that dream started 24 years ago, offering a real opportunity for work and inclusion to people with disabilities.
