Our story begins in ’68, when Nunzia and Pier Augusto, founders of Gma Napoli OdV, met, when teaching as volunteers at the University of Asmara (Eritrea). Gma Napoli, is a non-profit organization in a family style, which is committed to help children and women in need in poor countries.
We believe in a better world and aim to the interrupt the circle of poverty through Education for all and sustenance of primary needs. Our main income comes from donors who sponsoring children at distance, with that a child receives education, medical assistance, help to his/her family when needed. In few words, we give back him/her back the dignity he/she deserves.
In Ethiopia, GMA is involved in: Water and Health projects, with a special attention to women promotion centers.
Let’s work together in Africa for a better world!
Gemellaggio tra gli scout Italiani e gli scout dell’Etiopia: si può! Laddove la povertà e le malattie sono all'ordine del giorno e la fame ruba troppo spesso ai bambini il sorriso, lo scoutismo può essere una bellissima occasione di incontro, crescita e divertimento in un ambiente sano. Importante è il continuo contributo del gruppo scout di Afragola a favore del gruppo scout di Shashamane.€300.00 donated
Attualmente il GMAnapoli sostiene due Case Famiglia: Casa Norma a Shashamane e Orfanotrofio di Asella. L'aumento dei ragazzi di strada e l'estrema povertà però non lasciano tregua: sorge la necessità di ampliare le strutture per accogliere altri ragazzi. Con il GAOM di Reggio Emilia condividiamo i progetti per Case Famiglie in Etiopia e, insieme, sogniamo di avere una Casa famiglia anche per bambine sole e orfane a Shashamane.€8,173.00 donated of €15,000.00 goal
SaD with my friendsTogether with my 10 friends I support Kenenisa, a 9 year old child, who thanks to us can have an education, medical care and clean clothes. It only costs us 2.50€ each. I am proud of my friends and of the fact that together we are saving Kenenisa’s future.Elena and her friends
Fasil’s storyFasil, a street child labelled “stray” at the age of 5, is now at university because he was accepted into the Norma home, supported by GMAnapoli and adopted at a distance. Brilliant student? Not only that, he is a great player and loves languages ad is also very popular on Facebook. Poverty has not stopped him from dreaming.Fasil
Experience in AfricaFor me, Shashamane is a magical place: it made me discover a strength that I didn’t know I had. Being the point of reference for those children, during my stay, changed my life. The love they gave me gives me the strength to work to make them happy.Rossella
My journey in EthiopiaMy journey in Ethiopia has left an unforgettable mark on me, helping to further strengthen my belief that being born in one continent rather than another is only the result of accident and that helping those children to live a dignified life I everyone’s duty.Giulia
Little SamiraAfter having returned from Ethiopia, I decided to adopt Samira at a distance with my family. It is a very small gesture, but for her it can mean a lot. To think that thanks to our small contribution, Samira can hope for a better future only makes me proud.Diener’s family
