Budrio for Budrio - Community meeting

This evening we've
been invited as ImpattoABudrio to
the very first meeting organized by the social services to connect all the associations operating in Budrio's community.

This evening citizens, associations and institutions will come together at a round table to share visions and experiences in order to initiate a process of analysis and thinking for sustainable responses to the needs of our community in Budrio. 

We are very excited as a young church-plant to be an active part of this experience, and even more to see all the doors our Lord is opening in Budrio.

Anna, the head of the social services in Budrio is really open with us. 

Last week she invited Stefano and Ester
the national director of YfC Italia, to have a lunch with her at the "family house" for teens that for various reasons have been taken away from their families by the tribunal.
We had a great time meeting all the staff there and some of the kids back from school and on Tuesday afternoon they brought 3 boys to our tournament for the Cage at the Sport Centre in Budrio.
They'll like to send their kids to our summer camp but they don't have the finances, so we'll try to see what we can do. We'll keep you updated on that!
