... doniamo la speranza di ricominciare ...

 Dear Friends and Benefactors,

            First of all, I would like to thank all of you who continue to support our Rwandan children.

            Our beloved Pope Francis never tires of forcefully repeating "DON'T LET YOURSELF BE DEPRIVED OF YOUR HOPE!". And we need, in this world, torn apart by shameful wars, so much hope! The hope of a better world.

            With the help of the Lord, this year we managed to organize our annual Charity Raffle, which was suspended for a couple of years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Next June (the date is yet to be defined) we will be able to organize our Charity Dinner, aimed at raising funds, while in the summer some of our volunteers should finally be able to return to Rwanda to visit our boys and girls.

            There are many ways to help our children and I am sure that by now you know them well! Distance adoption, one-off donations and the so-called “friend card” which can be subscribed whenever you want.

            With distance adoption, a school, a teacher, books and pens, food, medicines and vaccinations appear in a child's life, but also a place to play and feel protected. With distance adoption, you allow a child to build the foundations for a better future.

            Dear Friends and Benefactors, I would like to wish you all and your families, also on behalf of the members of the Executive Board and our tireless volunteers, my best wishes for a peaceful and holy Christmas and a New Year 2023 full of peace and serenity!


Mr. Giovanni Abbate


Dear Friends and Benefactors,

First of all, I wish to share with you the joy of the private audience that His Holiness Pope Francis granted me last Thursday 15 April, at 11.00 am, in the Library of the Apostolic Palace.

As you can see in the photos, it was a very relaxed meeting during which I gave the 2021 Nolite Timere Calendar to the Holy Father. He seemed very pleased and interested in our work for the children of Rwanda, sponsored by His venerated predecessor Saint John Paul II.

During the audience, I had the opportunity to talk to him about the Nazareth Village that the Nolite Timere Association, thanks to the precious contribution of our benefactors, helps to support. Thanks to the subscription of long distance adoptions, in fact, we are able to provide for the education of numerous orphans and children in need.

Pope Francis encouraged the initiative and participated in the Apostolic Blessing to the members, volunteers, benefactors, staff and, above all, the children of the Nazareth Village in Mbare (Rwanda).
