by Francesco Tortorella
from the pdf EoC Report 2016 (2.11 MB) on the "Economy of Communion - A New Culture" - Editorial insert of Città Nuova n.2/2017 - february 2017
Also in 2016, the collaboration between the EoC and AMU* aimed to create jobs, to offer many people the opportunity to not depend on "aid", but make a living through their own capabilities.
During the year, some projects have reached their conclusion: in Bolivia (micro-credit), Paraguay (family microenterprises), the Philippines (employment of former street children) and Italy (vocational training for former drug addicts and assistance to the unemployed). Through these projects, 100 people have jobs today, employing their skills and earning a living for their families.
