- Careers & Placement
Since 1997, Progetto Sorriso nel Mondo Onlus is an international association engaged in the treatment and care of infantile craniofacial malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, in low-resource countries, such as Bangladesh and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The Association is made up of volunteer surgeons, anesthesiologists, and nurses who, every year, return to the same structures and at the same time, to bring help and hope to children and their families without economic means. Facial malformations affect, on average, one child in a thousand, but if in rich countries they are treated when they are only a few months old, in countries with low resources, in fact, they are not treated adequately and constitute a reason for marginalization and, at times, of abandonment for the little ones and for their mothers.
In addition to the surgical activity, Progetto Sorriso nel Mondo has carried out training projects, health projects and social initiatives.
Also, this year Accademia Costume & Moda actively participated in the charity evening held at our campus in Milan, in Via Fogazzaro 23, on December 15th. Thanks to the proceeds from the secret bags we have helped Progetto Sorriso nel Mondo to support projects in Congo and Bangladesh.Discover the Master in Fashion Sustainability
