about us

Welcome to the AMU website. AMU — Azione per un Mondo Unito (action for a united world) — is an NGO established in 1986 with the goal of building a united world through projects of cooperation in many parts of the world and education to global citizenship. It operates globally with special attention to particularly vulnerable places.

AMU is inspired by the spirituality of the Focolare Movement and has the goal of developing universal friendship and brotherhood using communion and sharing as a strategy. AMU aims at creating sustainable activities in cooperation with local communities; such activities are the first step to generate real growth in full respect of social, cultural and economic local realities.

As an NGO, AMU is officially recognised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation; it is formally considered a nonprofit organisation according to DM 113/2015, and is accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research for the training of school personnel on issues of global education and human rights (D.M.170/2016).

AMU is associated with CIPSI — Coordinamento di Iniziative Popolari di Solidarietà Internazionale (coordination of popular initiatives of international solidarity).
