Headline: AFRICA/CENTRAL AFRICA – Carmelites: “Education and development are our mission in the young heart of Africa”
Bangui – Creating jobs in Africa, giving birth to small entrepreneurial experiences, giving opportunities to men and women who live in a country at the top of the poverty ladder: is the commitment of the Discalced Carmelite religious working in Bangui, capital of the Central African Republic. “The serious poverty of the population has led us to believe that an intervention in the field of training and development is necessary, even more so in these times when the Country is trying to return to normal, after years of bloody war”, reports in an interview with Agenzia Fides Fr. Jerome Paluku, Secretary for the Missionary Cooperation of the Discalced Carmelite Order.
