The social rehabilitation cooperative is a totally autonomous body run by ex-drug users and has a central role in Villa Maraini rehabilitation activities. It gives hope to users who are still in trouble and are not able to see beyond their own pain.
Information Technology, gardening, printing works and masonry are the major activities run by the cooperative. The Cooperative has a computer centre for courses on software that are widely used in the labour market, such as DOS, Windows, Works for Windows, DBIII, Clipper, Excel, and Word.Workers are employed with regular wages, national insurance and social security coverage. Other rehabilitation activities include the park and building maintenance.
The Cooperative is an important channel towards reintegration into society, a delicate and difficult moment, being the last phase of contact with the structure.
