Looking back over a year is about remembering so many things: the projects, initiatives, and activities that we experienced together, and the struggles, worries, and hopes we went through “with” Africa and its people, too often forgotten, yet always courageous and vibrant.
The recurring sentiment threading through all of these moments was one of gratitude Only together, joined in the same passionate struggle, can we overcome hardships and difficulties. We want this heartfelt gratitude to keep on being turned into concrete action, supporting the most vulnerable groups, so we can “do more and better with Africa.” Each of us, from where we are, taking courage by our numbers, we persevere together in building a more just world for all.
Don Dante Carraro
