The Human Safety Net program supports families with young children and integrate refugees through work.
To do so, we bring together the strengths of non-profit organizations and the private sector, in Europe, Asia and South America. We are an open net and we welcome working with companies, organizations and foundations who share the same goals.
The Human Safety Net Was Started by Generali, one of the world's largest insurers extending its purpose of 'enabling people to shape a safer future by caring for their lives and dreams' to the most vulnerable ones in the society. Since 2017, Generali is Mobilizing people, their skills, resources and its distribution networks to support the human safety Net's goals.
Supporting parents in the first six years of their children’s life to lay the strongest possible foundations for their future.
Who we are now is shaped in the first six years of our life: one million neural connections form every second at that age. By the time children start school, 90% of their brain is already fully developed.
Day by day, the brain is built through early relationships, experiences and opportunities for learning. These have a proven impact on children’s health, education and livelihoods for the rest of their life. Economists show us that supporting early childhood development is the best investment we can make in our children’s future.
Parents have the greatest impact on their children's development. That is why The Human Safety Net for Families program supports parents in vulnerable circumstances by investing in parenting courses and centers. Over 3 to 12 months, parents learn how they can nurture their children's development every day. They become more confident and cope better with their emotions and stress. Families also connect with each other as well as with relevant services.
The program shows parents how to spend quality time with their children through activities such as reading and play. These are simple practices and behaviours that have a proven impact on children's development. It also offers advice on key topics like health and nutrition.

This way, we empower parents to build a brighter future for their children.
Helping refugees flourish as entrepreneurs to integrate them into their host countries.
Millions of refugees have arrived in Europe in recent years, many of whom have the skills, the passion and the resilience to be successful entrepreneurs. Integrating people through work is vital to welcoming them into wider society and will benefit all of us and our whole economies in the future.
But refugees also face special challenges when they start their journey to launch new businesses. Many find themselves confronted with complex regulations, a new culture and an unfamiliar business environment. Most lack the networks and resources for making their dream a reality. This new generation of entrepreneurs needs dedicated support.
The Human Safety Net for Refugee Start-Ups program works side-by-side with refugees to realize their business ideas through training, coaching, and access to working spaces and financing. Over 6-12 months, we support aspiring entrepreneurs to develop concrete business plans, register their ventures and start serving their first customers. They get the opportunity to learn about the business environment in their host countries and to strengthen their networks by meeting new colleagues, mentors and business partners. And if entrepreneurship is not the right path for participants, the program offers them professional training and hands-on coaching for jobs needed in their communities.
Today, entrepreneurs supported by The Human Safety Net are setting up businesses that range from restaurants to consulting firms, from language schools to IT platforms. They are contributing to making their local economies thrive.
Globally, up to 30 million newborns are at risk of failing to survive and thrive to their full potential, because they are born premature or suffer from birth complications like asphyxia.
To limit these risks and to reduce the number and impact of long-lasting disabilities, newborns and their families should have access to high-quality services before, during and after the time of birth.
The Human Safety Net for Newborns program works with hospitals, researchers, healthcare providers and communities of parents to raise awareness about prematurity and newborn asphyxia, ensure adequate treatments, and strengthen parenting support for the most vulnerable families.
Together, we work to reduce the health gap, to give these newborns and their families the best possible start in life.
