Il Nostro Team
Nella vita professionale sono ricercatore dal 1998 presso il Dipartimento Ambiente e Salute dell’Istituto Superiore di Sanità di Roma e mi occupo di inquinamento atmosferico.
I was born in 1964, current president and among the founders of Energy for human rights I deal with coordinating activities in Italy, Senegal, Gambia and India. They are among the promoters of the Stop Malaria campaign in Senegal and Gambia www.stopmalaria.it (2004/2010 and 2018/2020), of the campaign Support a child and his village (2003-2020) and of the First and Second March World Cup for Peace and Nonviolence (2009 - 2019).
In my professional life I have been a researcher since 1998 at the Environment and Health Department of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità in Rome and I deal with air pollution.
Ancora adolescente, mi sono iscritto al “Laboratorio Cinema” a Roma e poi alla “DocIT”, scuola di documentario sociale a Napoli.
Con la curiosità di un reporter e lo sguardo affamato, ho girato documentari a Cuba, in Africa e in India, alcuni dei quali sono andati in onda su Rainews24. Ho corso su e giù per l’Europa filmando rally, e navigato un po’ per il mondo con l’MSC, compagnia per la quale ho girato spot e promo.
Ho viaggiato nel cuore della gente filmando il memorabile giorno del “Sì”, regalando agli sposi l’eternità di un’emozione unica. Infine, l’amore per il cibo, e per l’arte culinaria, mi ha portato a realizzare video per i migliori ristoranti d’Italia, perché un buon piatto, così come un bel film, è preparato con cura e passione, semplicità e creatività.
Così, parlare attraverso le immagini è diventata la mia professione, il mio linguaggio, la mia missione, la mia passione sconfinata.
Dal 2010 viaggio in Senegal con Energia per i diritti umani realizzando video e reportage sulla vita in Africa e sui progetti della associazione.
Born in the land of mermaids, land of light and perfumes, of music and colors, I have always thought that the beauty of my land should be narrated, diffused, shared.
While still a teenager, I enrolled in the "Laboratorio Cinema" in Rome and then at the "DocIT", a social documentary school in Naples.
With a reporter's curiosity and hungry gaze, I shot documentaries in Cuba, Africa and India, some of which aired on Rainews24. I ran up and down Europe filming rallies, and sailed around the world with MSC, the company for which I shot commercials and promos.
I traveled to people's hearts filming the memorable day of "Yes", giving the newlyweds the eternity of a unique emotion. Finally, the love for food, and for the culinary art, led me to make videos for the best restaurants in Italy, because a good dish, as well as a good film, is prepared with care and passion, simplicity and creativity.
Thus, speaking through images has become my profession, my language, my mission, my boundless passion.
Since 2010 I travel to Senegal with Energy for human rights making videos and reports on life in Africa and on the association's projects.
Torinese, mamma lavoratrice, felicemente nonna, formazione antropologica,sono partita dall’esperienza scout in gioventù per passare all’impegno nel mondo della cooperazione internazionale che mi ha portata a lavorare 2 anni in Burundi in gioventù, poi a lavorare in una ong seguendo progetti di educazione allo sviluppo e successivamente aprendo progetti di cooperazione in Senegal ed Egitto.
Attualmente membro del consiglio direttivo e tesoriere di una ong torinese e socia di Energia per i diritti umani con cui ho la fortuna di trascorrere alcuni momenti di volontariato in Senegal. Nella vita titolare di una piccola società di servizi nell’ambito del marketing: non crediate non sia utile anche per la cooperazione!
I am too diverse to condense my life into a few lines!

Currently a member of the board of directors and treasurer of a Turin NGO and member of Energy for Human Rights with whom I am fortunate to spend some volunteering moments in Senegal. In the life of a small marketing services company: don't think it's not useful also for cooperation!

Dal 2016 è volontario presso Energia per i Diritti Umani onlus sostenendo i progetti di educazione, architettura e ambiente. Si è occupato principalmente del progetto per la nuova scuola dell’infanzia nel villaggio di Bandoulou in Senegal, seguendo tutte le fasi di progetto e di cantiere dalla fine del 2016 all’inizio del 2018.

My name is Marta Venturella, I am 23 years old and I graduated in Political Science in the three-year degree course of International Cooperation and Development of the University of Rome "Sapienza". I have been working for two years as an Energy for Human Rights volunteer with whom I shared two trips to Senegal, one of the three countries in which the Association works together with Gambia and India. Specifically, I am part of the "Education and Children's Rights" working team.
Born in 1983, member of the Humanist Movement and volunteer of Energy for Human Rights onlus since 2004, I currently hold the position of Vice President of the latter. In the association I coordinate the team that deals with education and children's rights and I am responsible, together with others, for the training of new volunteers. By profession biologist, I am a researcher in Eco-biology at Sapienza University of Rome, where I deal with the study of the effects of human disturbance and climate change on aquatic ecosystems. My research finds application in biodiversity conservation, sustainable resource management and environmental monitoring
I was born in 1983, a molecular biologist and researcher, in the member association of the Distance Support Team (SAD). For work I study the role of small regulatory molecules, called microRNAs, in the pathophysiology of the nervous system and, in particular, of multiple sclerosis. In the association I have been responsible since 2006 for the project "Support a child and his village remotely",thanks to which we help hundreds of girls from Senegal, Gambia and India to go to school and be healthy, while in parallel we promote the development of their communities. What do these two areas of my life that seem so far apart have in common? The vocation. In both I can best express my thirst for good knowledge and my aspiration, for myself and for all humanity, to go beyond what seems established, predetermined, to overcome pain and suffering. Because, as someone very wise once said, "There are no ways to happiness, happiness is the way".
Dal 2008 sono parte attiva dell’associazione: mi sono occupata della Campagna Stop malaria con i volontari e le volontarie dei villaggi in Senegal e attualmente mi occupo del progetto della Casa delle donne di Keur Marietou in Italia e Senegal.
Mi interessa la storia del pensiero economico perché ritengo che sia importante guardare la realtà da diverse prospettive e tentare una comprensione dei contesti e delle motivazioni che influenzano le teorie e i valori alla base dei sistemi sociali e politici..al pari ritengo che la crisi economica, ecologica e sociale che stiamo vivendo possa essere un’occasione per intraprendere nuovi sentieri di ricerca di senso..
Economista fallita, capoeirista di basso livello, scrittrice e esploratrice compulsiva in costante “ricerca-azione”, nutro una grande passione e curiosità per l’umanità. Mi piace immaginare insieme nuove possibilità e intrecciare percorsi diversi, metterli in comunicazione.
Per il resto tento di dare una direzione coerente alla mia vita.
Energia è senza dubbio uno spazio di ispirazione, perché offre spunti per guardare al proprio cambiamento mentre si tenta di trasformare ciò che ci sta attorno.
I am a PhD student at the Faculty of Political Sciences of the Roma Tre University with a project on common goods and the economic crisis, in particular on urban common goods and the governance of urban resources in Rome.
Since 2008 I have been an active part of the association: I have dealt with the Malaria Stop Campaign with the volunteers of the villages in Senegal and currently I am in charge of the project of Keur Marietou's House of Women in Italy and Senegal.
I am interested in the history of economic thought because I believe it is important to look at reality from different perspectives and to try to understand the contexts and motivations that influence the theories and values underlying social and political systems..I also believe that the economic crisis, ecological and social that we are experiencing may be an opportunity to embark on new paths of search for meaning.
Failed economist, low-level capoeirist, compulsive writer and explorer in constant "action-research", I have a great passion and curiosity for humanity. I like to imagine new possibilities together and weave different paths, to put them in communication.
For the rest I try to give a coherent direction to my life.
Energy is undoubtedly an inspirational space, because it offers ideas for looking at your own change while trying to transform what is around us.
Born in 1992 and I study Food Science and Human Nutrition. My plan is to become a researcher in the nutritional field. I got to know Energy for Human Rights through the 2014 Volunteer Course and a few months later I left for Senegal for a work camp and it was a wonderful experience. Within the association I participate in the "creative finance" team and help implement a garden project in the schools of Senegal and Gambia
“Traveling teaches disorientation, to always feel foreigners in life, even at home, but being foreigners among foreigners is perhaps the only way to be truly brothers. This is why people are the destination of the trip. " To try to reach this goal I decided to study to become a good "doctor, to attend the scout group of my country for 15 years, to learn how to become an active and aware citizen and to venture with Energy For Human Rights in the chaotic and wonderful world of International Cooperation. In association, I mainly deal with the project "Support a child and his village remotely", the relationship with our supporters and with our leaders in Senegal, Gambia and India. As for the rest of the activities, just ask me for a hand for anything.
Born in 1983 Alessandro Calizza graduated from DAMS but then decided to change direction and devote himself full time to art as a painter and sculptor. Since 2004 he has been one of the Energy Volunteers for Human Rights. Over the years he has collaborated on various projects of the Association and made numerous trips to Senegal and Gambia, where he has mainly dealt with the project Support a child and his village remotely. The same project that has involved him for many years also in Italy, as well as the preparation of voluntary training courses, the organization of events for the Association and various awareness initiatives aimed at students of elementary, middle and high schools in the capital.
I graduated in Sociology and I started dealing with international cooperation in 2000 with Unaltromondo ONLUS. For eight years I traveled to Senegal to carry out some projects: a nursery and primary school in Pikine (Dakar), a first aid center in the village of Ndour-Ndour in the Thies region, the Stop Malaria campaign and microcredit projects with women in different neighborhoods of Dakar. I have been working with Energy for Human Rights since 2015, taking care of the organizational secretariat, the administrative management of distance school support (SAD) and the reception and integration activities promoted by the Migrants group. I have adhered to the ideas and sensitivity of New Humanism since 1989 and I recognize myself more and more in the principle that says: "Treat others as you want to be treated".
