WE DREAM OF A WORLD WHERE YOUNG PEOPLE BREATHE THE PURE AIR OF HONESTY

where they love the beauty of a culture and a simple life undefiled by the insatiable needs of consumerism.

WE DREAM OF A WORLD THAT IS ATTENTIVE TO AND CONCERNED FOR THE INFIRM AND THE ELDERLY

lest they be set aside as useless.

WE DREAM OF A WORLD WHERE BEING A MIGRANT IS NOT A CRIME

but a summons to greater commitment to defend the dignity of every human being.

WE DREAM OF A WORLD THAT CARES FOR CHILDREN

that offers help to the poor and those newcomers seeking acceptance because they have lost everything and need shelter.

WE DREAM OF A WORLD OF YOUNG FAMILIES

with truly effective policies focused on faces rather than numbers, on a birth rates more than rates of consumption.

WE DREAM OF A WORLD THAT IS YOUNG

still capable of being a mother: A mother who has life because she respects life and offers hope for life.

WE DREAM OF A WORLD WHERE GETTING MARRIED AND HAVING CHILDREN IS A RESPONSIBILITY

and a great joy, not a problem due to the lack of stable employment.

 

WE DREAM OF A WORLD THAT PROMOTES AND PROTECTS THE RIGHTS OF EVERYONE

without neglecting its duties towards all.

WE DREAM OF A WORLD OF WICH IT WILL NOT BE SAID THAT ITS COMMITMENT TO HUMAN RIGHTS WAS ITS LAST UTOPIA

“As volunteer you realize it’s never too late to do something. It is enough to see the gratitude and joy of the children to want to work more as volunteer. The people I help are always with me somehow.”

“As I went to the youth club as leader it was great to be able to give back and teach the girls how rewarding it is to be there for other people”

“My reward is everything the homeless give me, seeing that you’re having a good time and that your work makes a difference.”
