Win the light sculpture by Diego Tomasoni

Light sculpture. The dimensions are 35x21x195 cm. Year 2016. Wood, white Carrara marble and hand-engraved methacrylate.

The Cause

Mani Tese is an Italian development NGO operating at the national and international levels to further justice, solidarity, promotion of human rights and respect among people. Since its foundation in 1964, Mani Tese has pursued this aim by raising public awareness of the causes of poverty in the South, lobbying policy makers and institutions and implementing development projects which, beside responding to the needs of the poor, may initiate a process of self-determination and self-reliance.

Up to now, Mani Tese has implemented—together with local partners—more than 2,300 development projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America in the areas of education, agriculture, infrastructures, support to cooperatives, human rights (particularly child rights, women rights, ethnic minority rights) governance, micro-credit, health, humanitarian aid, and integrated programs.

I EXIST—Say No to Modern Slavery is a program to make visible a modern phenomenon too often ignored. Slavery is the result of poverty, and it generates poverty. Mani Tese wants to contribute to a global mobilization, and to raise awareness of the manifestations of modern slavery through projects of international development cooperation, actions of awareness-raising, education to global citizenship, and engagement of civil society.
