From November 17 to December 4, our house of San Pantaleo welcomed with joy the management team of Design for Change. It is a global organization that aims to empower children to think, plan and carry out projects that really impact their environment at the educational, health, environmental, social and economic levels, with the mentality I can that makes them aware of the world around them, capable of acting and empowered to design a more desirable and sustainable future today.
The reason for his visit was the preparation of the International Meeting “I can” of 4000 children from more than 100 countries in Rome to share their projects and be able to say “I can”. The USG responded, through the houses of different religious orders and congregations, to Design for Change‘s request to receive the volunteers who would help the entire event.
The meeting concluded with an audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican on November 30.
We were with Kiran Bir Sethi (Founder), Monica Canton De Celis Calvo (CEO), Pranay Desai, Asma Hussain, Nikita Desai, Dominic Florisca and Parul Patel.
