CIAI 1968-2018
We are restating our guiding principles today to reaffirm our commitment to children and to the community, to make sure no child is left alone

1 Solitude is the biggest problem  We have learned that the worst thing for a child, even more than for another human being, is solitude, not being able to count on anyone..

2 Our solution is caring and bonds Taking effective care of a solitary child essentially means listening and rebuilding bonds. Bonds with the family, with school, with the community, with the world.

3 Love and professionalism are the vital ingredients Rebuilding strong and lasting bonds requires great passion and professionalism, plus a healthy dose of optimism.

4 Welcoming difference is in our DNA We believe that diversity is a source of riches for us all and that tolerance and acceptance is a fundamental value.

5 Respect for human rights is our guiding principleEvery child has basic rights. To defend them is the duty of everyone

6 Ethics and transparency are key to everything we do. We have always taken great care to report our work thoroughly because transparency and honesty are the basis of every relationship.

7 We never stop learning We learn from our successes, and even more from our mistakes, always seeking solutions to new challenges.

8 The happiness of every child is our final goal We have the happiness of every child at heart and in each case we do everything possible to achieve it, just as through the child were our own.
