(ANS - Rome) - Mary, Karla, Bana Konda and who knows how many others. There are millions of mothers who make sacrifices out of love. In many countries "Mother's Day" is celebrated in this month of May, the moth of Mary. Here we report some examples of courageous mothers who, with a little support at important moments of life, have become educators for the development of their children and their communities.
(ANS - Kinshasa) - The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is a country of contrasts. The former Belgian colony is the largest country in Central Africa with a wealth of impressive resources, but a reality marked by mismanagement and violence. The DRC was also the first partner country of the Belgian Salesian NGO "Via Don Bosco", active in the field of education and training. There is still a special relationship between the two parties, with the NGO supporting the employment of young graduates from local Salesian professional schools.
(ANS - Rome) - May 20, 2017 will be a day of celebration for the entire Salesian Family: the Institute of the Volunteers of Don Bosco (VDB) will be celebrating 100 years of life. The Volunteers, founded by Fr Philip Rinaldi in 1917 in Turin, now number around 1200 and are present in 58 countries around the world.
(ANS – Bruxelles) – Today, 9th May, we celebrate the day of Europe, due to the commemoration of Schuman Declaration, a statement made by the French foreign minister Robert Schuman on 9 May 1950, proposing to place French and German production of coal and steel under one common High Authority. This cooperation was to be designed in such a way as to create common interests between European countries, which would lead to gradual political integration, a condition for the pacification of relations between them: “Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements, which first create a de facto solidarity”.
