Sri Lanka

Magis, the Italian Jesuits’ NGO, and the Italian Bishops’ Conference, are funding a project run by the Jesuit Social Centre in Galle, southern Sri Lanka, which supports widows and their families, over 800 persons in total. This group of people has the least possibilities to earn a living wage and send their children to school. The support is not only financial but also psycho-spiritual, through self-help groups and by teaching the mothers how to meditate in the Buddhist tradition.
