Antonio VirgiliA Report by Prof.Dr. Antonio Virgili, Vice President of the Lazarus Union


It was held, from February to March 2016, at the Institute of Higher Education “M. Pagano-Bernini” of Naples the project of the United Nations Foundation “Girl Up”, aimed to increase the social and cultural participation of girls and to inform about the problems and discrimination that many women still face in the world today.

The CSLI Italia for some years is spreading and supporting locally the project.  In the project dozens of girls are involved and they will attend short seminars and interactive lessons, held by members of the CSLI Italia, and then develop forms of cultural exchange and information with girls in developing countries.

The implementation relies on the collaboration of LIDU (Italian League of Human Rights), which has an agreement on cooperation and friendship with the CSLI Italia.
