A Solidarity Project: "Harambee Africa International"
“Harambee — All together for Africa,” a project whose first steps were connected with the canonization of St. Josemaría in 2002, promotes educational initiatives in Africa and about Africa. Through development projects in the sub-Saharan region and informational activities in the rest of the world, it spreads knowledge of the values and future possibilities of African culture. During the past six years, thanks to the help of many people, Harambee has spread to Spain, France, Portugal, the United States and Ireland, and has provided economic support to 28 social and educational initiatives in 14 countries. Due to this international growth, in June 2008 the association “Harambee Africa International” was set up in Rome to coordinate the various projects in which other entities such as the “Harambee USA Foundation” and the “Asociación Harambee-España” participate.
