Cecilia Di Francescomarino
Graduated in "International Cooperation and Development Policies" and with a MASTERS from MAE in "Local Human Development and Cooperation", Cecilia worked at the UN agency dedicated to development, UNDP.
She has gained direct experience in participatory work with communities and has collaborated with various organizations and associations in Africa and Central America, in community health projects, child protection, respect for human rights, reduction of environmental vulnerability and promotion of small income-generating activities.
It is precisely because of the growing interest in social entrepreneurship applied to contexts of extreme poverty, and the meeting of the needs of Interlife's beneficiary communities, that it has designed and is developing the Toolkit model in close collaboration with all Interlife Onlus staff in Italy and abroad. She is currently engaged in Italy in activities of social planning, fight against poverty, intercultural mediation and social communication.
After eight years as f2f coordinator for Southern Italy, with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, in 2015 Francesca decided to move to Interlife; a smaller but extremely cohesive and innovative company; where there is an air of transparency and the work characterized by great sinergy and mutual cooperation.
Her gut feeling proves to be right; many and different are the goals achieved so far and the lives of children, women and men, saved! For Interlife, she is in charge of Corporate, Foundations and Major Donors.

She graduated in humanities because of her interest in social sciences. After years of experience in f2f as Crew Manager, she decided to work in interlife for her mission, but above all for the transparency and seriousness of her staff and projects. The toolkit model gave her hope in the future for its multiplier effect. It continues to form the scope to be able to increase the fundraising that Interlife lives so that it can get to be known and expand its areas of intervention. Today, she serves as co-leader of Interlife's F2F Fundraising Team.
After 3 years of experience in Face To Face as Team Leader, coordinating teams and training fundraising resources, he decided to work for Interlife for its mission and innovation of its projects. He decided to make this choice and take this path for the opportunities that Interlife can give and for the validity of the Interlife Toolkit model, an innovative project that distorts the vision of help in the field, from welfare to independence generator. In the meantime, Marcello continues to train in marketing and communication to try to give new keys to the work of the communicator and to find new methodologies to address a topic of such depth. Today he is the co-leader of the Interlife F2F Fundraising Team.
