Amanda Casimiro has dark, curly hair framing a smiling, open, and sweet face. After having texted each other for a while via email, today, thanks to Skype, I can finally associate a face to her email address.
«These days I am in my parents’ home,» she explains with her summer dress that reminds me, with a little envy, that beyond the equator it is vacation time, «because I just graduated in environmental engineering! So, I take this opportunity to have a rest and to look around».
Amanda, 25, is from Castanhal, a town not far from Belém, in the North of Brazil. A few years ago, she left her country to do an internship experience at a US business, Mundell and Associates, a member of the business network of the Economy of Communion.

The homeless and street children of Nairobi, Kenya, have a reason to smile after a Catholic parish started a program for rehabilitating and educating them in a bid to help them find a meaning in life.
Most of the homeless in Nairobi have engaged in criminal activities due to the desperate situation of life they find themselves in. Young children have been left as orphans after their parents died as a result of drug abuse or diseases.
The Consolata Catholic parish church, in partnership with other well-wishers has started various programs for helping the needy within the parish community. The programs include: educational centers - with one already built in a nearby slum called Deep Sea -, sports activities to bring the youth together with other youth members of the parish, and a feeding program.
