THE ASSOCIATIONS IN SCARLINO LIKE TO WORK IN NETWORKS

Very often walking together in a joint training program encourages the creation of long lasting relationships.
We have witnessed these experiences in Scarlino, a charming little village in Tuscany, in the southern province of Grosseto, a scenic territory that stretches from hilly areas up to the coast.
For several years now the non-profit associations of the area have joined in a consortium called V.I.T.A. (Volunteering Together with All the Associations) led by AMU, and they carry out training courses.
This year’s course, which ended on the 10th May focused on communication; it was the 6th meeting and was entitled “Communication as an active participation in social issues”. “Thirty people were present – says Valeria Terreni from AMU Scarlino. The lecture was very engaging, and was carried out in the council hall of the City of Scarlino, which sponsors this initiative each year.” The speaker Gianpaolo Bucci, a filmmaker that actively works in socially engaged projects worldwide, showed us the video made on the AMU project in Peru. Then he proposed to work in separate groups divided by association, to conceive a commercial that would promote the projects of each. The various ideas were then evaluated one by one in their flaws and qualities, with interesting and very appropriate advice! We went away being happy, after a couple of hours flown by so fast …
“A school in the Andes”, in Peru, continues Valeria, was the AMU project for which we worked last year, raising funds through markets and car boot sales selling embroidered linen and various objects. From today we start working for the new project in Egypt “Chance for Tomorrow”… so to work!”
The last stage of the training program was on Sunday 15th May with the traditional solidarity dinner, the proceeds of which were destined to the households of the area in economic difficulty, in collaboration with the competent offices of the Municipality.
