Eleven years ago, during the Volunteers Fest of 2006, the “Fraternity with Africa” Program was launched, which sees the collaboration between Volunteers of the Focolari Movement and AMU – Action for a United World, with the awareness that for the development of the Africa, it was essential to support training, especially in sub-Saharan countries. From this item, was born the idea of a program for the provision of scholarships for African young people and adults in need.

Fraternity with Africa becomes Living Fraternity!

Today, looking at the international changes, the need was felt to relaunch and expand the Volunteers’ commitment to new areas and countries and Fraternity with Africa becomes “Living Fraternity”, consolidating three important pillars:
• the commitment to respond to the needs of persons and territories in a non-assistance form;
• the commitment and experience of AMU in the management of cooperation projects;
• the Universal Fraternity, which today is extended and embraces different parts of the world not just Africa.

There are four projects that become part of the Living Fraternity Program:
– “Water, Source of Life in Burundi” for access to basic common goods, water in first place;
– “Chance for tomorrow“, which in Egypt deals with peace education, interreligious dialogue and emancipation of women
– “Profor“, the project for the strengthening of inclusive communion businesses and for decent work in Brazil;
– “Building Brigdes” for the construction of a network between associations, families and companies for the social and working inclusion of Unaccompanied Foreign Minors, young and adults, immigrants and Italians, in a state of vulnerability.
