The Andiamo Community has today, 5 March begun the 40-day journey of preparing for Easter Sunday with a mass celebrated in Umodzi Hall right in the campus of Andiamo Education Institutions (AEI).
In his homily, Don Cesare has urged all the students of AEI to find some time to read the Bible, which will enrich their faith.
Fr. Mario Pacifici, who briefly prayed with the faithful has asked people to take this period seriously. He has asked everyone present to do charitable work. He also asked the congregation to pray for Fr. Lazarus who has been murdered in Europe by a young man whom the priest had been helping.
During the mass, ashes were put on the foreheads of the congregation reminding them of their own mortality and a call for repentance.
They say social responsibility is an ethical theory that an entity, be it organization or individual, has an obligation to act to benefit society at large and that social responsibility is the duty every individual has to perform so as to maintain a balance between the economy and the ecosystems.
For 30 years now, Andiamo has used the road that connects Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust to the M1 Road and it has been christened “the Andiamo Road” though the same road connects the Great Lakes Company to the main road. On Wednesday, 5 March 2014 the volunteers from Italy joined hands with their Malawian counterparts in maintaining the road that serves the community of Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust.
It is a rainy day today, Monday, 24 February yet volunteers and Andiamo staffs are busy finalizing the new boys hostel and the ablution block at Andiamo Education Institutions campus. The hostel will be ready to accommodate students in April when the third term begins.
