Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

"I thank God and all of you for all the  educational projects that have been implemented in sub-Saharan Africa and throughout the world these past ten years. These programs break away from stereotypes. There are of course some injustices that cannot leave anyone indifferent, but Africa is also a land of spiritual values that are important for our time.”

Harambee promotes initiatives that improve  health, education, rural schools and training centers for women. Currently it's developing 46 projects in 17 African countries. The teaching programs it promotes help more than 50,000 people and their teacher training will ultimately affect the education of about 2.5 million children.

"So women in Africa are at a disadvantaged because many of them lack the proper skills, as a result of the education they received. Also these women become victims of human trafficking, many of them are unemployed. Also through Harambee we're trying to see how we can actually change all of that and get them to participate with those skills that they would need able to be useful in the future, and so what we are looking at is education.”

In addition to improving conditions of African communities, the foundation also focuses on values and formation, which in turn improves coexistence.

Harembee celebrated its 10th anniversary at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome. But the celebration also included some work, since members of the foundation also talked about future projects.
