The sweater is a symbol, which turns into concrete action in favour of integration and against educational poverty.
On the occasion of the "Christmas Jumper Day 2019" - a day dedicated to Christmas sweaters organised by Save the Children - Juventus took to the field to announce its new commitment in favour of the landmark: where they will redevelop and support the Punto Luce of Save the Children in the coming years, located 800 meters from Allianz Stadium - in the Vallette district of Turin.
Punto Luce is an aggregation center that falls within the "Let's light up the future" campaign launched by Save the Children starting in 2014 where girls, boys and adolescents can carry out free educational activities, that are indispensable for their development and their future (it also includes study support, reading promotion, art and music workshops, access to new technologies, sports and motor activities), thus regaining the opportunity to cultivate one's dreams, talents and aspirations. It's a theme dear to Vallette, a neighborhood with a number of children higher than the city average, and with a significant presence of families in conditions of socio-economic fragility.
"In these years through football and its planning, Juventus has been responsibly committed to its stakeholders. Today, the world asks us for an evolution, a change of pace," declared Juventus President, Andrea Agnelli. "Not only in the field where we built our History, but also in the contexts that surround us, relying on the values of Sport to concretely contribute to the evolution of the Company and of the new generations. Education and the younger generations are the cornerstones of our commitment and the partnership with Save the Children represents an important step on this path.
"With the redevelopment and support of Turin's Punto Luce," adds the Juventus President. "We give a concrete sign and will offer further opportunities to our territory. In addition to supporting children and families in the area, which remains the main objective, this opportunity is also addressed to the people of Juventus and our partners. It is a new possibility to learn and grow together by putting yourself in the game on a new field."
