“Solidarietà Provagliese” is a social non-profit organization born in 1985 thanks to the idea of Curate Danilo Vezzoli, working in Provaglio d’Iseo at that time, and a small group of volunteers wishing to help local disadvantaged young people to find a job.
Originally work resettlement was only for drug-addicted people. Then, as time goes by, the social and economic unease has changed, so that the Cooperative had to develope a new kind of service, in order to adapt itself to new demands. Nowadays it gives employment to several physically and mentally disabled, long-time unemployed people and workers near to retirement too.
Since the beginning the aim of all initiatives and activities of "Solidarietà Provagliese" has been that of helping people in need: the first partners were provided services mostly by volunteers, like the management of canteen for elderly persons, the transport of disabled people and the tiding of some school buildings; afterwards they opened a small laboratory for the assemblage of electrical pieces and then they even took over a whole engineering workshop, where finally job creation for the disadvantaged has become possible.

Over the years the founders’ project has changed into a 'entrepreneurial' one, so that the Cooperative found a new financial strenght and has now specialized with excellent results in the following areas:
We feel spurred on by these data not to stop, in order to achieve always better results.
