It is a special missionary project that provides for the training of a sister within an Italian volunteer association for about 6 months. At the end of this period, the nun will promote in her own land a volunteer experience of at least one of the 14 Works of Mercy and will activate a small Social Enterprise (called Bread of Mercy) for the production of foodstuffs (e.g. bread, chocolate, rice, etc.) or products (e.g. soap, etc.) that can be sold, in part to ensure the religious community’s self-support, and in part given free of charge to those who are in a state of indigence and vulnerability. A twinning based on reciprocity links the religious community of the nun and the voluntary association.
The available grant is addressed to young people, entrepreneurs, or start-ups, who can identify in the EoF principles and are willing to closely cooperate at a local level with the mentioned sisters in building a new social activity or developing an existing one.
Here below you can find out all grants’ details, offers, requirements and the 2 available paths to apply for. If you come from one of the listed countries, either you already have a start-up or you are just interested and motivated, hurry up and send your application by March 31st!
While getting ready to join the EoF international in-person event in Assisi next September, don’t miss the opportunity to make difference in your own country and be in touch with valuable partners.
