Cooperativa Sociale Giovani in Vita
Calabria - Sinopoli (RC)
owned by Cooperativa Sociale Giovani in Vita
The Social Cooperative Young Life was founded in 2003 by the PON Security and Development in Southern Italy from 2002 to 2006 and aims to:
- create job opportunities for young people at risk of becoming easy prey and laborers of organized crime ( 'Ndrangheta);
- get, right through their work on land confiscated from the mafia, produced at the highest quality giving importance to the seasonality in harmony with nature and workers.
The Cooperative, as well as managing confiscated farmland, work on private properties undergoing Mafia intimidation and fail to find workers on the territory and agricultural vehicles available to work on these lands.
Our choice to offer a job opportunity LEGAL men and women of the place has always encountered opposition from many people, and sometimes even by some who, though far from the 'Ndrangheta, have "suggested" to "let go" because (he quotes verbatim) "against certain realities is a losing battle." Despite this and the various attacks, theft and suffered fires, today, after almost ten years of hard work, the cooperative counts 24 members and is recognized by those working specifically oil sector because it knows how and what to produce and, especially, by those who work in the social commitment and solidarity: product quality, customer satisfaction, and the precision with which they are respected the commitments are our structural axes.
The idea that drives us to continue on our way, to always seek new opportunities for growth and improvement for our area, is the belief that only through the creation of alternative employment opportunities to "easy profit" proposed by criminal organizations succeed to be truly free men and women, as we like to say ..
men and women 'Ndrangheta FREE!
That's why about a year we have undertaken a new effort crafting honey (orange) and the jam produced with citrus (navel oranges, lemons and clemetine Calabria) of confiscated land of Varapodio and bottling (whether or not flavored in 6 variants: basil, lemon, oregano, pepper, rosemary and sage), thus far sold in bulk wholesale, made with olives picked in the land of Sinopoli, Oppido Mamertina and Limbadi.
Synthesizing thought we shared the philosopher Feuerbach LA of the famous statement "we are what we eat" are right to give due attention to what we decide to put in the shopping cart and we appreciate and support the ethical aspect and the principles of equity and solidarity applied to purchases.
If acceptable, we are willing to give a sampling of our products if you would like to test them before deciding whether to proceed or not with an order.
We are pleased to report that at our web site www.giovaninvita.com , where you can find more information about our cooperative, it is already possible to buy online.
For anyone with pleasure you can subscribe to our Facebook group seeking simply Cooperative Young Life we will be happy to welcome you.
