Leinì, Turin – Italy), 28 June 2009 – With VIDEO at the bottom.
Sister Sheela Jacob knocked at Anima Universale’s heart: she asked to visit us in order to explain the new project being developed by the Salesian organization FIDES of Bangalore, India, which Anima Universale has been supporting for many years. Sister Sheela was welcomed with great enthusiasm in our Palatenda.
Our beloved friend Sister Nancy Pereira – founder and director of FIDES – entrusted to Sister Sheela her embrace for all of us and particularly for Swami Roberto, whom she remembers with great affection and gratitude ever since they met in 2001.
Swami Roberto gave Sister Sheela Euro 5,000 for the new FIDES project. According to the draft, this money is sufficient to pay for the excavation and concrete for the foundations of that large structure.
The FIDES project foresees the building of a multi-purpose hall and new classrooms for the “FIDES School”. This will serve to FMA Salesian Sisters to conduct educational programs for poor families in the slums of Bangalore: sanitary and hygienic education, professional training, English language courses, group activities for young people and much more.
