Progetti di contrasto alla povertà AMU

Le imprese che aderiscono all’EdC condividono i propri utili annuali per tre finalità: progetti di sviluppo e assistenza a favore di persone in necessità, percorsi di formazione alla cultura del dare, consolidamento e crescita dell’impresa.

Per la prima di queste finalità, EdC collabora strettamente con AMU - Azione per un Mondo Unito ONLUS, la quale gestisce parte degli utili messi in comune dalle imprese, per realizzare progetti di sviluppo che restituiscano lavoro e dignità a persone in condizioni di vulnerabilità sociale ed economica.

Insieme sviluppiamo e realizziamo progetti per l’avvio ed il consolidamento di attività produttive ad elevato impatto sociale, che creino nuova occupazione per persone in condizioni di vulnerabilità. In questo modo, persone che altrimenti dipenderebbero dall'aiuto esterno hanno l'opportunità di migliorare e valorizzare le proprie competenze lavorative, arrivando a guadagnare con il proprio lavoro il giusto compenso che consenta a loro e alle loro famiglie di vivere degnamente.

I progetti partono sempre dalle proposte delle nostre associazioni partner locali che, ispirandosi ai valori dell'EdC, lavorano a stretto contatto con le situazioni di miseria nel mondo.

L’esperienza maturata sul campo e i valori alla base del nostro lavoro hanno consentito di sviluppare in questi anni quello che definiamo “sviluppo di comunione”: una prospettiva di sviluppo fondata sulla capacità di ciascuno di donare qualcosa di sé e dei beni a propria disposizione, anche in condizioni di grave necessità. Per questo in ogni progetto prevediamo forme e strumenti specifici per attuare la reciprocità del dono, segno di protagonismo da parte delle persone coinvolte e garanzia di un genuino percorso di sviluppo umano integrale.

#AMU - For the Development of Communion: the 2020 Report Has Now Been Published

The Report of the activities and achievements of the year 2020 that the EoC promoted together with AMU (Action for a United World), the result of the sharing of the annual profits of the EoC companies, is now available online.

AMU (Action for a United World) is a non-governmental development organisation that for more than 30 years has been "accompanying" vulnerable communities around the world with its projects to help them discover their own potential for development with the underlying objective of the "United World", in other words, the "universal fraternity" that Pope Francis has placed at the centre of his pontificate. For many years, AMU has been a partner and "operating arm" of the Economy of Communion, for which it manages part of the profits pooled by the companies to implement development projects that restore work and dignity to people in socially and economically vulnerable conditions.

AMU's approach to cooperation is the "development of communion", which is based on the ability of each person to give something of themselves and of the goods at their disposal, even in conditions of great need. For Logo AMU 2021 ridthis reason, each project includes specific forms and tools to implement the reciprocity of the gift, because every person, even in a situation of need, is the bearer of enormous potential and talents that can contribute to the human and social development of their community. The aspects of material growth, such as the creation of income-generating activities and access to a dignified life, are inseparable from those of personal and community growth, such as the rediscovery of one's own abilities, attention to others and trust in the construction of a fraternal relationship.

Together, AMU and EoC develop and implement projects to start up and consolidate productive activities with a high social impact that create new jobs and income for people in vulnerable situations. In this way, people who would otherwise be dependent on external help are given the opportunity to improve and enhance their working skills, and to earn a fair wage for their work that allows them and their families to have a decent life. The projects of AMU always start with a proposal from the local partner associations which, sharing the values of AMU and the EoC, work closely with the most varied situations of poverty in the world and it is through the local partners that the projects are developed and completed.

2020 was the year in which the history of peoples suddenly changed and the enormous difficulties of those who were already living in vulnerable conditions were increased. One could have said, simply, "when it rains it pours", seeing only the problem in these facts. The local communities taking part in the development projects, however, tried to see the opportunities for change, too, that these events brought with them, striving to ensure that when all is said and done, the communities will find a more solid economic fabric, with families more aware of their destiny and with stronger community ties.


The following AMU-EoC projects were active in 2020:
