Where We Work

Italy

Based in Italy for more than 50 years with its headquarters in Milan, today COOPI carries out fundraising activities and promotes awareness events through its network of collaborators and volunteers in the cities of Milan, Brescia, Crema, in Trentino and Veneto regions and in the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland.

The contribution given by volunteers and private donors allows to bridge Italy with the world. This can happen in many ways: Italian citizens deducting a small fraction of their taxes (0,5%, "Cinque per mille"); donations made by text message; a testamentary gift; donating time as a volunteer during the "Carta, Nastri, Solidarietà" Christmas campaign.

Also from its headquarters, COOPI partakes in holding the International Master Program in Cooperation and Development in Pavia, besides carrying out food distribution activities for people in need, first started by COOPI founder Father Barbieri and now improved through a partnership with national-level food bank "Banco Alimentare".
