The Marist College of Notre-Dame du Carmel in Badajoz

23/05/2006: Spain

On Friday 5th May, the Notre Dame du Carmel College in Badajoz finished its solidarity campaign “ENDeuda” of S.E.D. (NGO: Solidarity Education and Development). The summit of this campaign was the third solidarity walk: “Walk in solidarity! III”

This walk is a gesture of solidarity to denounce situations of injustice and the lack of solidarity between the countries of the North and of the South. It is a matter of us setting out on the walk by passing through the streets of our city. This year we were asking for the remission of the debt. From a practical point of view, the participants had received a notebook, “The good walk”, in which they had written the name of their sponsors and showed how much they had committed to contribute. This year’s solidarity project plans to subsidise the study grants for occupational studies and secondary studies at the Marist boarding school at Comarapa in Bolivia.

We then had a solidarity festival in the schoolyard where different friendship and Christian life groups, as well as the Champagnat Choir and the Primary School Choir, offered various items prepared for the occasion.

Around 400 boys and girls from the college participated in the festival with their parents. We hope that this type of experience will help them to respond better to the needs of our world, TO BE ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
