23 November, 2021

The Vasco Vieira de Almeida Foundation, through Fernando Resina da Silva (Partner), subscribes the "Pact for Childhood", promoted by ProChild CoLAB -  ProChild Against Poverty and Social Exclusion, a Collaborative Laboratory (CoLAB) aimed at developing a national strategy to combat poverty and social exclusion in childhood.  This project is supported both by the Vasco Vieira de Almeida Foundation, which is a founding member of ProChild and a member of its Board, and by VdA.

"On the occasion of the commemoration of the 32nd anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 20 November 1989 and ratified by Portugal on 21 September 1990, the men and women citizens who sign the Pact for Children call upon all (. .) citizens to assume, within their sphere of action and influence, the priority of childhood, which may be expressed in active public policy measures and concrete actions capable of ensuring in the present, without further delay, a happy childhood in a more cohesive and harmonious society."
