Practical music courses for blind students of Ha Noi, for guitar programs and the organization of music lessons for blind young people who attend the Training and Rehabilitation Centre for the Blind (TRCB) of Ha Noi, in Vietnam. The country does not offer sufficient structures for the blind, who without an adequate assistance and formation, run the risk of remaining cut off and outside society. The TRCB, with which the Marist Brothers collaborate, precisely intends to provide for the blind young people opportunities for instruction and for leisure time.

To improve the structures of the Paul’s Primary School, a Marist school with 500 little boys in Mulungushi, in Zambia. The objective of the project: installation to provide running water for the school, allowing the restoration of adequate bathrooms in a quite poor zone.

Thanks to this project, the students who are not able to buy the text books will find them at their disposition in the school library. This is a very common practice in many African schools to remedy the economic difficulties of the families.

Marist Observatory for the rights of children: a program of information and sensitizing on the rights of children to be carried out before the Institución Educativa Champagnat – Champagnat Educational Institution - Pinares de Oriente, in Villavicencio, in Colombia. The protagonists of these activities will be the young boys who will lead the discussion on the theme of human rights even outside the school, involving the community around them.

The purchase of computers for the reading room of the Marist community of Mostaganem, in Algeria - Already for several years the house of the Marist Brothers is a point of reference for the Christian community in a Muslim society. The house has a rich library frequented by over one hundred students: young Algerian or Sub-Saharan University students of very scarce economic means who find with the Brothers a family environment and very welcoming for studies. With this project, the Brothers will also place at the disposition of the students’ computers with professional programs adapted for those frequenting the scientific faculty.
