The GMA Napoli is a lay voluntary organization (OdV) registered to the ROA (Register of Accredited Voluntary Organizations) with registration No. 96 of 18/12/2012 and registered in the Regional Register under No. 1909, with decree no. 266 of 17/12/13.

The GMA Napoli has been operating in the communities of Halaba, Asella and Shashamane, in Ethiopia for more than 15 years. The association’s mission is to enhance the Ethiopian social and cultural heritage and promote the integral development of the individual, looking at their fundamental rights. The tool through which it acts is the SaD – Distance Support – with which it is possible to guarantee a home, medical care, education and training for children and women.

The GMA Napoli supports several micro-projects in the most disparate sectors of intervention (water, reforestation, health, women and education), actively contributing to the human and economic self-determination of people. In Italy, the association’s attention is aimed at spreading knowledge by collaborating with schools of all levels, parishes and local associations.

Why Ethiopia?

Because it is at the bottom of the ranking among the poorest countries in the world, with an income per capita of less than $ 1 per day.

Because child exploitation and hunger threaten the childhood of so many children every day! Because women, in this country, are the engine of society and represent the change for a better future!

Because we want a change in the mentality of the “rich” part of the world, for a more equal distribution of wealth, to have REAL sharing of it, which also a would allow a place as beautiful as Africa to rise again and walk with its own strength.
