  • How do we feel when we see the drawing?


    Do we look at it? What does it make us want to do? Do we feel close to these children? Both of them? Or do we give one of them priority? What can we tell them?

New projects in 2014

3 new projects: 2 in Latin America, 1 in the Philippines and 0 in Africa despite educational solutions being urgent and a priority, faced with its extreme poverty, terrorism like that of Boko Haram, and foreign greed. We continue to provide aid to Mobokoli and the other schools of the Company of Mary in the Congo (DRC) by providing them with the means to purchase books in order to have proper libraries!
We have been called upon for 3 new projects, 2 in Latin America and 1 in the Philippines.

You can find out about them on the homepage. They have been accepted as they are essential in order to bring new life, gradually transforming the part of the world in which they take place …

We do not have any projects in Africa, but we hope that this will be an exception to the rule

as Africa suffers from extreme poverty, and educational solutions are urgent and a priority. There cannot be a future without education! And not just any education! Some extremists go as far as taking up arms… The so-called Muslim terrorist group which is currently rife in the north of Nigeria and whose name, Boko-Haram, means “No to Western schooling” gives a good illustration of the radical questioning of a unique imposed method, with results that are sometimes very negative… Schools, in all countries, must adapt to the world of today, and can only play their part correctly by being capable of welcoming and appreciating each pupil. Through its experience, the Company of Mary Our Lady manages to support children and young people receiving schooling in its establishments. We can therefore help it to add an even more personal approach to teaching, by providing libraries with books suited to the country.
