“LEARNING FROM AFRICA”

“THE TOWER OF ABEL” BOOKCASE, VIA PIETRO MICCA, 22 – TURIN

Two experiences of international cooperation at the “La Torre di Abele” bookshop. Don Luigi Ciotti and Martino Montanarini will talk about the projects that the Abele Group and the Busajo Association promote in Africa.

The “Communauté Abel” of Grand Bassam (Ivory Coast) and the “Smiling Children Town” of Soddo (Ethiopia) share a similar philosophy: supporting those who live in the poorest countries without providing welfare, but promoting instead the leadership of the local population and undertaking shared development processes. The meeting will also be attended by Emiliano Cottino, educator of the Abele Group in the community of Grand Bassam.

Introduced by Rocco Pinto, from the Tower of Abel.

Moderated by Cecilia Moltoni, Abele Group Press Office.
