AMU - Fraternity with Africa Project 2014

  1. 1. “The Earth is but one country. We are all waves of the same sea, leaves of the same three, flowers of the same garden” FRATERNITY WITH AFRICA
  2. 2. The Fraternity with Africa project was launched in 2006 at Budapest, during the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the birth of the Volunteers of the Focolare Movement. On that occasion a proposal was made to start activities to gather funds for SCHOLARSHIPS that would go to the professional specialization of young Africans.
  3. 3. According to the International Organization of Migrations, each year Africa loses 20 thousand qualified labourers. It is the greatest form of impoverishment of the continent that is compromising the future of the new generations and is blocking the development of African countries. Paradoxically, Africa spends 4 billion dollars a year to employ expert foreigners in order to solve the lack of qualified personnel.
  4. 4. The Fraternity with Africa project sustains scholarships for university courses or professional specialization of young Africans.
  5. 5. After their studies the scholars commit themselves to remain and work in Africa for at least 5 years to put their professional qualification at the benefit of their own country’s development.
  6. 6. Since 2006, 181 scholarships have been assigned to the main countries of sub-Saha Africa:
  7. 7. Total grants awarded 181 Total women 85 Total men 96 Total grants concluded 79 Total grant suspended 21 Total current grants 81 Summary of scholarships
  8. 8. Fields of studies
  9. 9. There is now a great number of initiatives to make the project known and to collect funds through exhibits, concerts, sports activities, or by donating the corresponding amounts in the place of the wedding birthday gifts they would have received.

  12. 12. The main characteristic of the FCA project is RECIPROCITY! All are builders of fraternity! The youth are involved not only study hard but also give their time to volunteer services in their own communities. Many peoples carry out activities to gather funds and to make the project known.
  13. 13. Felistas of Kenya, for example, studies pedagogy and does volunteer work in a nursery school. Sebastien of Burundi cooks in a social center during weekends. Guylaine of the Cameroons helps at a center for women in difficulty by teaching them sewing.
  14. 14. 79 students concluded their studies Anderson of Tanzania, who now works in a hospital administration, wrote us: I thank you from the depth of my heart for your help. Had I not received your support I really would not have been able to continue my studies. Thank you for your idea of helping in our education. This is the best way to help the development of our continent as well as that of all nations. I ask you to continue this project because through it, we experience God’s love for us. I believe that from this project we receive not only academic formation, but also moral formation. This will form persons who are sensitive to other people’s necessities and are capable of contributing with their resources towards the building of a new humanity.
