Project A New Beginning promotes activities with young migrants and Brazilians in Boa Vista

Projecting the future, visualising new perspectives and doing good works are the objectives of the new initiative launched by the Marist Province of Brasil Sul-Amazônia in the city of Boa Vista, in Roraima. The project A New Beginning – Life Project provides young migrants and Brazilians with training and socio-educational activities on vocation and life projects.

Organised in partnership with the Diocese of Roraima, the Social Work of Roraima and the Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network (Repam), the initiative held its first meeting on 15 January 2022. On that occasion, seven young people who participated in the vocational counselling and dance workshops were present. It is expected that thirty-eight young people will gradually join the activities, which will be held every Saturday, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Centro de Formação da Área Missionária São João Batista.

For Brother Danilo Bezerra, coordinator of the initiative, the celebration of this first meeting is the beginning of a splendid journey that will lead the young people to discover their own paths: “The feelings are of hope and joy, with the certainty that we are walking, together with the young people, a path of listening and dialogue for their protagonism”.
