The Human Safety Net, a global movement of people helping people
Whatever happens in life, no one should be held back from reaching their potential.
The Human Safety Net is a global movement of people helping people. Its mission is to unlock the potential of people living in vulnerable circumstances, so that they can transform the lives of their families and communities. The Human Safety Net programs support families with young children and integrate refugees through work. To do so, it brings together the strengths of non-profit organizations and the private sector, in Europe, Asia and South America.
The engine of The Human Safety Net is a foundation initiated by Generali. It extends Generali’s purpose of ‘enabling people to shape a safer future by caring for their lives and dreams’ to the most vulnerable in our society. Generali is mobilizing their people and resources – financial support, time, skills, networks, assets, products - to reach more people and amplify our impact.
“In creating The Human Safety Net, we decided to move beyond a charity approach and to build genuine partnerships between the social and the private sector in order to make the most of our strengths. We applied the rigour of an investor and the attention to data of an insurer. We identified other assets and capabilities to create shared value alongside our partners. By embedding The Human Safety Net into our core business, we can make its impact more meaningful and long-lasting.”
