During this summer period two teachers from our school, Rossinelli Manuela e Cantoni Roberta, have spent one month, in Burundi to work as volunteers in the local orhanotrophy of Mabayi. Burundi has only recently came out from civil war and land still shows scars of violence. Children don't have anything, neither food nor a shelt and yet they smile and pray God to thank him. Our teachers lived a wonderful experience, working and playing with these unique children who returned them with love and affection.

 In the community there are about 42 children, who have the "luck" of a hot meal and a roof above their head. Still more than 200 children join the community during the day to have school and one meal. Most of them are orphans and some of them are seriously sick. In Burundi  AIDS, colera, malaria are the most common and spread diseases and water itself represents a danger for all, because it's not pure.

"Thanks to every child for their happiness and love.
May your dreams will become true"

Manuela e Roberta
