it is doing things together, working together, travelling the path of life together, peer with peer, man with man, regardless of individual ability, because being men is the only condition that gives everyone the same nobility.
CLS – the Work and Solidarity Cooperative, was developed with the main aim of giving dignity to those affected by some form of handicap and favouring their integration into a workplace shared between able-bodied and disabled employees.
The attention of CLS Is focused mainly of psychophysical disability, with the spirit of sensing and satisfying the relative needs from a global viewpoint, from the development of unexpressed potential to the ability to become self-sufficient, inclusion in the professional sector, and progress to “After Us”.
A group of parents with disabled children together with the Councillor for Social Services of the Municipality of Saronno, and the voluntary associations, set up a cooperative to provide job opportunities for people affected by handicap.
The first Fabbrica della Solidarietà was opened in Via Montoli, in Saronno.
Alongside the factory, work began on the development of Community Accommodation for disabled people who no longer had a family.
The Community Accommodation was opened.
Fondazione CLS Lavoro e Solidarietà O.N.L.U.S. was set up in 2010
Man became the centre of the universe because he’s the only creature made in God’s own image. Everything that man knows or doesn’t know how to do neither adds to nor subtracts something from his immense greatness. The different skills that every man has are part of every person’s limits, and these cannot be the measure of human dignity.
