Brasilia (Agenzia Fides) - Demonstrating its commitment to mission "beyond the borders", the Missionary Youth (JM) of Brazil has launched the "Corrente Solidaria" project, which provides for cooperation between the JM of Brazil and the sisters of the Congregation of the Poor Child Jesus who work in Vila Maulo'o, in Indonesia. The sisters run a school that welcomes poor children, with no financial means to study in traditional schools. Often they are orphans and children of farmers and fishermen or waste collectors.

Through the project "Corrente Solidaria", all Brazilian local churches where JM is present will be invited to contribute to the purchase of uniforms and school material for 60 children in Indonesia. Those responsible for the JM Group will be in charge of coordinating the project together with Brazil's PMS. The initiative will end in October, missionary month. (CE) (Agenzia Fides, 09/06/2016)
