In January 2000 was drafted the memorandum for the Association 2000 Women ACLI (Christian Associations of Italian Workers) of Montesarchio. In 2017 the statutes were revised and the association renamed “Donna” as non-profit association.
It is the hope of Association “Donna” to work with together with other groups in Montesarchio who have the same goals of creating opportunities for cultural encounter and social equality to keep the core values of democratic life.
The association has the main following aims: Promotion of social solidarity, culture of volunteering mainly in the local community, and in relation to the rights stated in the national and international bills of rights. In particular, it pursues the rights of:
