Action for Peace

We are deeply troubled by all the conflicts that are causing migrations of peoples, extreme poverty, hunger and social injustices, and we are personally committed to finding practical solutions.  We identify with the principle of universal fraternity and are committed to living according to the Golden Rule shared by all religions and people of good will:
“Do to others as you would have them do to you” (Christian text Luke 6:31).
We have started by helping in situations of need on the ground; with media campaigns, and reflections and suggestions by experts in international relations, dialogue and politics.
Through seeds of fraternity spread throughout the world, we are supporting projects, actions and initiatives aimed at making humanity become one family.
We want to bring our plea for peace, through the #signupforpeace Appeal, to the U.N., UNESCO and other national and international institutions, so that they may feel even more urged to take concrete steps towards peace, through political and legislative channels.

argentinaThe Solidarity and Sustainable Tourism Programme in the North West of Argentina (TSNOA) is designed for 600 people of five indigenous and peasant communities, characterized by unemployment and poverty, which have in turn generated violence, alcoholism, loss of cultural identity and forced migration from their respective locations.

The Program aims to improve the professional skills of the members of the communities and to strengthen small production activities. Currently 83 families are already working to improve their lives through the craft, agriculture and the widespread tourist reception.
