The President’s Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society today marked the first anniversary since it was set up with the launch of its new website pfws.org.mt.
Foundation director general Ruth Farrugia said that throughout this year the foundation made great progress and connected with people from all walks of life and representing various sectors of society.
Some 42 fora sessions had taken place during which people spoke about what was important for their well-being. The foundation was overseeing research projects and there were currently 12 ongoing projects following over 500 hours of research.
President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca said the foundation met over 2,000 people over this first year. She thanked the growing number of volunteers and all those involved for making it possible.
The role of the foundation, she said, was to help facilitate inclusion by bringing about a change in mentality.
