Networking Marists

07/02/2018: Brazil

More than 200 solidarity actions were carried out in the Brasil Sul-Amazonia province throughout all of 2017, as part of a project celebrating the Marist bicentenary.

“The project (Maristas em Red, or Networking Marists) was the way we wanted to celebrate the bicentenary, by being a transforming presence and mobilising people and organizations in order to leave a legacy during such a special year,” said Guilherme Endler, of the province’s advisory of institutional communication and representation.

“It was important to unite projects and dreams of people who are passionate about education, for the promotion of life and the transformation of the world,” he added on Jan. 29.

In mid-December they exceeded their goal by reaching 205 initiatives involving innovation, education, spirituality, citizenship and human rights, sports, sustainability, art and culture.

Among the actions that were carried out, the following are worth highlighting:

1. A Portuguese course for Haitian immigrants in Porto Alegre, addressing cultural issues and also offering psychological legal assistance.

2. Clean and give a new look to the Plaza Boa Esperanza in the town of Santa Maria.

3. The project ‘Historias de Vida’to listen with sensitivity to the stories lived by the patients of the Geriatrics Hospital São Lucas in Porto Alegre.

4. The project Colorear hace bien’: the students of the Marist youth ministry of the Colegio Marista Medianera, in Erechim, revitalized the wards of children and oncology of the Hospital Foundation Santa Terezinha, with the aim of making the patients happy and to contribute to their recovery.

There was also a campaign to donate blood and books, dental care in various communities in situations of vulnerability, and the revitalization of several public spaces.

The platform where you can see the initiatives will remain online so that the actions carried out continue to inspire more and more people. Click here to see it.
