The GMAnapoli supports several micro-projects in the most disparate sectors of intervention (water, reforestation, health, women and education), actively contributing to human and economic self-determination of people. In Italy the attention of the association is aimed at spreading the knowledge of the other 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 a per capita income 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 change for a better future!

Because we want a change of mentality in the “rich” part of the world, for a more equitable distribution of wealth, to arrive at a REAL sharing, which also brings a territory as beautiful as Africa to rise again and walk with its own strength.
