The intervention is part of the health cooperation promoted by the Tuscany Region (Decree n. 1101 of 15 March 2016).

The project is in line with the previous steps taken in the same region. The commitment that local partners have for many years addressed to the care and assistance of the most vulnerable population groups, particularly disabled children and adolescents, has been supported over time by various co-operation interventions by various public and private actors: this has allowed the establishment of a network of partners that work in synergy by making better use of the resources allocated to local reference partners. Indeed, starting from 2009, the partnership has taken action to coordinate and implement activities promoting social and health services, with a view to long-term sustainability. Beneficiaries of the Project will be over 150 children and adolescents with disabilities assisted by the Viviene Foundation, in addition to the paramedical and technical personnel to which the training courses will address.

 Project leader is the USL Toscana Nord Ovest: involvement in previous experiences has led the USL to realize the validity of the activities carried out by the Viviane Foundation and the willingness to structure and strengthen its interventions in favour of the partner in DRC, through actions involving the implementation of local structures and vocational training beyond the mere sending of healthcare equipment.

D.I.C.A. Onlus is partner for the technical and administrative management of the Project: in this regard, it is responsible for preparing the forms for reporting the expenses to be sent to the local partners, as well as for the preparation of financial reporting.

Starting from 2014, a collaboration agreement between the Association and the Viviane Foundation has contributed to extending and strengthening the collaboration between the local partnership and the Tuscan partnership.

The Viviane Foundation is a local partner, responsible for the implementation of actions in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Foundation is involved in the restoration and improvement of hygienical and sanitary conditions of the physiotherapy and kinesitherapy outpatients of the Viviane Foundation Rehabilitation Center. In addition, through the implementation of a training course for 10 socio-sanitary operators on the subject "Physiotherapy and Kinesitherapy, the project will be able to have effects in the medium and long term. There will be also 10 meetings to raise awareness on "Information on Health Education". Meetings are designed to create the conditions to help the population gain their health through their own behaviors and their own efforts. The goal is to empower the population in choices that have an impact on the psychic and physical health of individuals and the community.
