The report on the activities of 2015, which was presented at the recent annual meeting of AMU, illustrates the main projects and activities. After having talked about development projects (see article of the 9th June), we will continue now with the micro-actions of 2015: precise actions that have helped to solve specific problems of families, groups and communities.
“Last year 38 micro-actions have been supported in 6 Latin American countries, 3 in Africa, 4 in Asia, 1 in the Middle East and 9 in Eastern Europe. Of these actions, no less than 23 have been realized in cooperation with the Economy of Communion.” (from the report of the President)
Some micro-actions incurred in 2015 were initiated in previous years, but right now we want focus on those initiated in 2015 in particular: 26 in all, 18 of which achieved thanks to the Economy of Communion. For the majority of micro-actions we deal with the interventions of social and healthcare assistance and scholarships to ensure access to education where family resources do not allow it. However, other interventions for the development of productive activities are not lacking; in addition AMU’s commitment has intensified in the work with partners and counterparts to identify priorities and methodologies appropriate to their respective contexts; such a medium-term-oriented work, pointing to a sustainable future is now more than ever absolutely necessary.
