AGN ENERGIA FOR SOCIETY
For AGN ENERGIA the young, children and their families are the future.
Here are some examples which illustrate the group’s commitment to promoting an association which supports and creates leisure spaces for sick children and their families.
IL PORTO DEI PICCOLI: SEA, PLAY AND CULTURE FOR CHILDREN IN HOSPITAL
Alongside Porto dei piccoli, an association founded in 2005 as the brainchild of Gloria Camurati, AGN ENERGIA supports its mission to take the sea to sick children to set sail together every day on fantastic adventures far from their sickbeds.
Starting from Istituto G. Gaslini in Genoa, since 2005 Onlus has reached a great many children in many parts of Italy and further afield, establishing partnerships with the main paediatric centres in Italy.
The sea is a constant feature of the fun-educational activities which those working at the association - trained internally via ongoing professional education - take to the hospital wards and homes of children being cured at home.
FOR CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES
Porto dei Piccoli targets all sick children, whatever their illness, devoting special attention to the family dimension.
To seek to bring back the serenity which illness has to some extent undermined and which is so important at times of illness, staff go every day into homes on tiptoe offering a friendly presence and a listening ear.
With the Il Mare a Casa Tua - The Sea at your Home - project children are offered fun-educational activitiesdesigned to better respond to their needs.
WE ARE A ‘SAFE HARBOUR’ EVEN WHERE THERE IS NO SEA!
For all children able to go out, fun and educational Explorations are organised every weekend to take children to discover the beauties of the area and the wonders of the world of the sea and its ports. Excursions are thus transformed into magical adventures in which children are true centre-stage players and all differences between ‘healthy’ and ‘sick’ children melt away because play is something which all children share in a serene and carefree way.
To raise awareness on the hospital care and cure themes, specific projects are offered to school pupils in order to keep them informed and aware of what their schoolmates are going through in hospital and also to increase their trust in doctors, white coats and injections.
RESEARCH AND INNOVATION
Over the years Porto dei Piccoli has always pursued its vocation for research and innovation in partnerships with medical staff which promote important projects linked, for example, to assisted pet activities or a search for non-invasive procedures to monitor and assess elements capable of reducing pre and post operative stress for children.
Porto dei Piccoli’s goal is to act as one great family making bonds with the sea to offer support in children’s fight against illness and that of their families and to be able to act as a safe harbour in which anyone will find understanding and support... even where there is no sea!
