About

Hate is one of the causes for the lack of social and economic development of new generations.
UNHATE projects finance concrete actions in local communities to promote dialogue and acceptance of diversity. The projects are implemented by associations and organisations whose beneficiaries are mainly children and young people.
These actions will be selected for their capacity to bring long lasting and rooted positive effects in the target communities by promoting the social impact of art; in this way, youth will become true agents in the fight against hate, bringing about a positive change.
The Foundation is currently financing projects on issues linked to the fight against hate and the lack of acceptance of diversity, in different geographical areas.
Through the projects, the Foundation has addressed the following issues:

  • •   Violence and discrimination against young girls and women
