UAF IS MADE OF PEOPLE
A MESSAGE FROM CECILIA AND MATTEO, FOUNDERS OF UAF
Let's face it. Sometimes, being a few years older brings some hassle. There is still a lot of energy to do, learn, discover, but the opportunities to do so are few.
It would take a company, cheerful, stimulating and that makes you regain your energy but, especially in big cities, sometimes having friends or close family is difficult.
Grandchildren are precious for this very reason, but when your grandchildren are away or busy, it is possible to 'adopt' one.
This is what we want to offer to all 'differently young' people: a quality time to spend with the 'really young' to do all those things that are stupid to give up. Find out here.
UAF means U Are Family
We are Matteo Fiammetta and Cecilia Rossi, we are 30 years old and we met in elementary school.
We have many things in common, one of all: the love for our grandparents who unfortunately left us (those of Cecilia) or who live far away (those of Matteo, in Sicily)
Our grandparents were influenced figures who taught us a lot. Today, in our city, we see many 'differently young people' who have distant grandchildren, busy families and some problems
This is why we have joined forces and are committed to this small mission which is to recreate one of the most precious bonds there is: that between grandparents and grandchildren.
A meeting of generations, a profound exchange, an equal relationship that serves both to one and to the other.
