This Christmas we want you!


“Much more than a gift!” is the Mani Tese awareness and fundraising campaign carried out in partnership with laFeltrinelli. From 1st to 24th December we package gifts from customers to support our development projects in the south of the world.

Join us and the more than 4000 volunteers who for 13 years have been making gifts for the customers of over 80 bookshops throughout the country: you will support Mani Tese’s projects in favor of children and women victims of violence and exploitation in Guinea-Bissau.

Last among the last

In a world affected by the COVID-19 emergency, those living in a context of extreme poverty such as that of Guinea-Bissau, the poorest country in West Africa, experience the emergency every day. The most vulnerable people, such as children and women who are victims of violence, trafficking and exploitation, live in constant danger.

With the widespread impoverishment caused by the effects of the coronavirus, the condition of these people will only get worse.

We need your support to carry out our projects for the protection of victims of exploitation and for the prevention of violence through the fight against poverty and education and awareness campaigns to combat the phenomenon. (Find out more).
