Fidesco volunteer back from mission on August 2013Coordinator of the Life Project Center (LPC)

The LPC activities overseen by the LP4Y coaches (workshops, training, studying, meetings) take place every morning, Monday – Friday 8-12am. During the lunch break the kitchen area is shared. The afternoon is free for individual lessons (mainly English and IT), for paid work (small projects requested by one of the partners), or for launching an activity chosen by the young people. We try to reproduce the structures of a real business in terms of punctuality, dress code, behavior, use of equipment etc.
Each LPC is headed by a permanent LP4Y coordinator, advised by 2 consultants in development and management of activities, and assisted by the head of teaching, the training volunteers and the activity advisors, volunteer or salaried. Their involvement depends on the teaching plan and the fixed termly planning.


The Tempo Tendo is a Life Project Center for very young mothers, creating a handicraft activity using recycled objects from the dumpsite: plastic, cardboard etc.


Dear friends,

As the world continues to deal with the pandemic of the Covid 19 virus, the

United States is now confronted with the virus of anti-Black Racism that permeates

the history of our country. How can we stop the spread and treat it? What is the cure?

Fidesco acknowledges this grave sin of white supremacy and recommit to our work

to fight for the equal dignity of all in every place where we serve—including the

lives of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

May we not let God down!

We pray for all our sisters and brothers of color who are victims of racism and may

our actions bring about change for the better.
