OUR PROJECTS

SERVICE PROJECT:

Fundraising and Public Awareness for Casa di Kim

Interact Rome International leads and supports fundraising and public awareness initiatives in favor of Casa di Kim. From 1997 l’Associazione Kim Onlus (a.k.a. Casa di Kim) aims at offering shelter, medical treatment and all basic needs to children in Italy and overseas that are seriously ill and suffer from economic hardship and social exclusion. Patients at Casa di Kim frequently come from countries at war or without an appropriate health care system. Minors are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who stays during the time of the treatment together with the child at Casa di Kim. The Association aims at building public awareness about social inclusion, solidarity and service to others.

EDUCATION PROJECTS:

1. Diplomacy Education Embassy Adoption Program

Interact Rome International participates in the Embassy Adoption Program implemented by Global Action in Italy. Students have meetings with the Head of Mission and other members of the diplomatic corps of the Embassy that adopts the Interact Club each year. Interactors study the country in depth and have the support of embassy staff to broaden their knowledge in thematic areas related to the country assigned.

Interact Rome International is honored to have been adopted by the Embassy of Norway in 2018/2019. This is a unique opportunity for our Interactors to learning by doing with the mentoring of international experts in the field.

Time dedicated to activities under the Embassy Adoption Program are approved as “Alternanza Scuola-Lavoro.”

 

2. Netherlands-Italy Model United Nations (NIMUN)

Interact Rome International participates in the Netherlands and Italy Model United Nations Program implemented by Global Action/Diplomacy Education. The program was established in 2017 by the Embassy of the Netherlands and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It aims at offering students a unique opportunity to study the UN Security Council. After taking part in the Embassy Adoption Program, students are invited to participate in the NIMUN simulation at a conference held once a year at a UN Rome-Based-Agency (RBA) and represent the country that they have been studying.

3. Interact Funded Scholarships for NIMUN

Interact Rome International carries out fundraising activities to award two scholarships each year to 2 (two) non-Interactors, not residing in Rome, and with proven financial need so that they can participate in the NIMUM program.
