The FOQUS foundation and the independent agency Dalla Parte dei Bambini provided jobs for over 100 people, when they started the remodeling project of the Montecalvario Institute at their own expense. The alterations and modifications were made after considering and analysing the possible guests and organizations that the Institute would house.

Among these are:

  • A nursery school daycare: not only is it the first in the Spanish Quarter, but it is also managed only by women from a women-only cooperative. As of last year we admitted 48 kids aged 1-3 years who attend on a daily basis, of which 10 attend the school for free.
  • A primary school: managed by  Dalla Parte Dei Bambini, the project offers primary school education to kids aged 6 to 10 years old.  As of last year we have 180 kids attending, 28 of which were accepted into the day-school thanks to the Banco Di Napoli donation.
  • Università delle Libertà: Managed by the Università delle Liberetà cooperative, it offers informal courses for adults under the model of lifelong learning, providing alumni with new skills and opportunities. (250 people sign up on a yearly basis).
  • Academy of Fine Arts in Naples: Although completely detached from FOQUS and our programs, the Academy located in our building provides fashion, graphic-design, and art courses to approximately 500 students in their 5-year program at the FOQUS campus.
  • Gym: Provided for the activities of the dance school, and sports for Università Della Liberetà.
  • Bar Bouvette Mocambo: A coffee shop owned by members of the Quartieri Spagnoli, which also serves as a meeting place for all the members of FOQUS and its organizations.
  • Symphony orchestra of the boys of Spanish Quarters: Managed and run by the European Academy of Entertainment and Music, the school teaches youth between the ages of 6 and 16 with the J.A. Abreu method, which foments music as the primary avenue for social and intellectual improvement.
  • Agenzia Controluce a Associazione Kontrolab: Photo-journalistic agency that works for nationally renowned  newspapers.
  • The Napolista: Office for the online newspaper dedicated to the analysis of football and politics.
  • The company’s headquarters of Mem/Art (design and graphic communication workshop).
  • Istituto di Formazione Musicoterapia (ISFOM): Offers music therapy classes, and treatments for both adults and kids.
  • Associazione Internazionale di Volontariato: Run by the International Napoli Network, it provides international volunteers with housing and projects which they can work with in poverty-stricken areas of Naples. Among these projects are After school Care, Teaching English, NGO Support, and Environmental Work.
  • Project Ahead: head office of our project that now helps 6 startups.
