With great joy this year we wanted to be close to different social realities that are particularly meaningful for us.

Luigi Giussani primary school, run by the Headmaster Andrea Nembrini, aims to promote and improve access to education in one of the shanty towns of Kampala, in Uganda. Pedrali supports this important reality that, through educational and learning courses, helps children to discover their own dignity, to cultivate their talents to become the leading players of their own lives and active subjects in the development of the whole society.
