WHO WE ARE
1. For what we cannot achieve on our own, we need to unite with others. The Vinschgau Social Cooperative (VISO) was founded on 11th July 2013, based on the principle of solidarity and reciprocity. Our aim is to support the introduction of socially disadvantaged persons into the labour market and assist in their welfare. With over 30 male and female staff members, the Vinschgau Social cooperative (Viso) works to open the doors to a significant number of jobs to handicapped and other socially disadvantaged persons.
We create socially equitable job opportunities with our various partners, institutions and organizations in the Vinschgau Valley. The kinds of jobs selected depend on the needs and capabilities of our partners. We defend equal opportunities, the rights of the individual and social inclusion, with work as the basis for achieving these goals. Work promotes self-awareness, self-esteem and social integration, allowing us to independently decide how we live our lives.
We work throughout the Vinschgau Valley in South Tyrol, together with public services and local partners, to further our objectives and reach our goals. To us, regional economic activity isn’t just a theoretical construct. Working together with our local partners we are always on the lookout for new ideas and creative solutions in response to local and regional problems. In so doing, we try to improve the region in which we live.
Our ambitious social values are underpinned by accountability and consistent financial commitment. This is a fundamental requirement for achieving an inclusive society, capable of accommodating everyone.
