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”.

Priest is revolutionizing a new collaborative learning method for students in Sierra Leone

2016-11-01

Fr. George Gbamanja is originally from Sierra Leone, but Rome has been his adoptive home for the past six years. His life, prior to arriving to Rome, was anything but easy. He and his family endured the harsh realities of the civil war in Sierra Leone.

Almost a decade after the war ended and the recent Ebola outbreak, the West African country stands tall as it slowly heals from the deep wounds left behind.

Priest, Diocese of Makeni
"Going back to the years of the war, those were really difficult times. My family was in Makeni by then. FLASH I had to come back to join my family in Makeni. For quite some time it was really, really tough because the rebels had conquered the entirety of Makeni, coming down from Kolon, right through Magburake, then they were headed for Freetown. So, that part of the country was under their control.”

As a nation, Sierra Leone is still struggling to rebuild schools but Fr. George has bigger plans in mind. Responding to this need, Fr. George and the Diocese of Makeni have come up with a revolutionary type of "Collaborative Learning” system for students in his home country.

FR. GEORGE GBAMANJA
Priest, Diocese of Makeni
"Our Dioceses, as you see, is passionate about education, youth formation, justice and peace. FLASH The point is this, one thing we believe in is human development.”

The project will commence with the assistance of a team of trained administrators, followed by a specific selection process of teachers and 200 high school students. 

FR. GEORGE GBAMANJA
Priest, Diocese of Makeni
"Learn something... So that you can inspire the lives of others, so that you can be instruments of change. Gone are the days when the priest becomes like a service station priest. The priest most be able to make an impact in the lives, especially of the youth, so that their future could be a better one.”

Fr. George hopes to bring new opportunities to Catholic high schools in Sierra Leone by providing teachers with new didactical tools and concrete learning experiences for the students, through a mutual collaborative working environment.
