Costa Family Foundation o.n.l.u.s.

„Mummy, turn down the volume. I can’t hear the music!“ My two year son took me by surprise with he comment.
Costa Family Foundation o.n.l.u.s.
 
I stopped a second and reflected. What does she mean for surely we need to turn up the volume if we want to hear the music. We looked at each other for a second or two and then we broke out in a smile. Ezra was right. At times too high a volume distorts our perception of things. Sometimes we need to lower it and see and hear beyond the din!
The Costa Family Foundation was set up in 2007 for the protection and promotion of the rights of young people in all the world. In the subsequent years of activity we have realised 7 projects in north India in favour of Tibetan children exiled there, escaping from the opression of the Chinese goverment. We have also built an orphanage, House 13, in the Tibetan Children’s Village of Dharamsala (TCV), and a complete floor in the University College of the TCV of Bangalore. Thupten, the child we have adopted and we wish to accompany through the eraly years of his life, lives in House 13.
We have visited Togo, and spent time with the children of Maristella and Sister Patrizia, paying for their school fees and study materials. Also we have been in Uganda whee the life expectancy is only a little over 40 and whee thee is much need. hee we have embarked on our two ‘green projects’ in cooperation with the autochthonous communities in Karamoja e a Mukono.
These are the ways in which we look differently at things and go beyond the norm and come into contact with a different reality. We seek to accompany those who are in need, to cooperate with them. The steps still to take are many. We continue to work. We will need time. The important thing is is to walk the same road togethe and with joy in our hearts.
